For this week’s “Hanging in the Balance” series, we bring you the stories of Anabel, Maria, and Elizabeth. Each of them are facing the threat of deportation either for themselves or for their loved ones. More than two million people have been deported under the Obama administration. For us, this is not an abstract number. These are friends and relatives, fellow churchgoers, community leaders, and co-workers. And while our community continues to struggle with having our loved ones detained or deported, our government has failed to provide a solution to this crisis. We’re resolved to keep fighting for reform.
