One human face on the immigration debate

To follow up on yesterday's post about immigration reform legislation, you may want to consider reading this article from the UCLA newspaper about the situation of one undocumented student from El Salvador, Mario Escobar, who faces deportation if his asylum claim is turned down by US courts. Escobar fled to the US at a young age after the civil war which left several of his family members dead. The article describes the uncertainty which this student author faces, not knowing whether he will be tossed from the US in coming weeks.
