DACA Deportee Finds His Way in Mexico

This CNN report follows Jorge Matadamas, who came to the US at four, received DACA status, lost it, and was deported to Mexico.

Jorge is comparatively lucky. He has family in Mexico who are helping with his adjustment. Not everyone has that.

In this 2:25 segment, CNN tells Jorge's story and shows how he's trying to adjust to life in Mexico. His family is helping him, but he's also getting help from Somos Mexicanos - an organization created by Mexico's immigration department three years ago to help repatriate Mexicans deported from the United States.

An excellent addition to classroom discussion.
