Fronteras: Life After Deportation, Part I
Fronteras: Life After Deportation, Part I

Listen
AIR DATE: September 1, 2011

Why do people from Mexico, Central America or anywhere in the world for that matter consider the idea of coming into the U.S. illegally?  They have a dream too but it's not the typical American Dream.  It's a dream of breaking out of the poverty and struggle they're used to in their home country.  We talk with reporter Peter O'Dowd with the Fronteras Newsdesk in Phoenix about a group of Guatemalans who have stories to share about their experiences coming into the U.S. and being deported.
