What happens when you cross borders and live between two different worlds? That's what UNR professor Debbie Boehm explores in her work. She's researched how the migration and deportation of Mexicans has affected their families and their communities in Mexico and America. So how does continually crossing borders affect one's family, and one's sense of identity? How does transnationalism in Nevada affect a person's psyche? We talk with Debbie Boehm, a reporter who traveled with Guatemalan deportees, a law professor who studied kids whose parents were deported, and a woman fighting to keep her father from being deported.
