An Immigration Story: The Mendoza Family Revisited

Last year Pacifica reported on the immigration plight of the Mendoza family who live in the Central Valley town of Kerman. A year ago they faced imminent deportation by immigration authorities. That action would split the family apart. After intense negotiations with the IRS, the family gained a reprieve for one year. Since then changes in immigration policy by the Obama administration have made it easier for the family to renew their temporary permits to stay in the US. But lacking permanent status, the Mendoza family still worries about their future, and immigration reform. Vic Bedoian reports from Fresno.
