Michele and her mother knew little about the U.S. immigration system until her boyfriend was detained, an experience that broke her heart and opened her eyes. This moving doc video focuses on one couple's story to illustrate the injustice and turmoil that immigrants and their loved ones endure all the time. Michele and her boyfriend Michael were a hardworking, loving couple. Michael came here for a better life, and gave back to his adopted home, even helping with the relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina. In return, the U.S. immigration system detained and shuttled him between isolated jails. He was denied basic due process and barred access to proper medical treatment and thrown into solitary confinement before he was deported to Honduras. Heartland Alliance's National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) is committed to protecting human rights through immigration reform.
