President Obama made a landmark speech in support of major immigration reform on Tuesday – the same day that a little boy in Phoenix, Arizona had been told his father would be deported back to Guatemala.
Earlier this month 11-year-old Jose Garcia Ramirez was getting into the family car to head to school when I.C.E. agents (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) detained his father. Jose was born in the United States, but his father is an undocumented immigrant from Guatemala.
CNN’s Christiane Amanpour spoke to Jose as he waited to learn the fate of his father. You can watch Jose’s tell his story in the video above – he was joined by Viridiana Hernandez, a Hispanic undocumented college student in Arizona who is an activist fighting for immigration reform.
