In the days since she was deported to her native Mexico, the 42-year-old Ohio mother said she has already received threats. She hardly eats, and has trouble sleeping, she told The Washington Post. The risks are all too real for her family in Mexico’s gang-ridden west coast state of Michoacán — both her father and her brother have been kidnapped in recent years, and her mother extorted.
"A Noncriminal Mother of Four Was Deported. Now in Mexico, She Fears for Her Safety." is from the April 28, 2017 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Samantha Schmidt and narrated by Jill Melancon.
