Latino USA has a segment on Children who are Deported in Guatemala by Daisy Rosario and Antonia Cereijido, on September 12, 2014. It documents what happens after they are removed from the US.
We saw the pictures of the children detained at the border. But what happens to the children who don’t make it that far? What about those who get deported? Some children even get deported from Mexico. Luis Argueta, an academy award nominated Guatemalan filmmaker, was in Guatemala when the child refugee crisis story broke out.
He spoke with children who were deported and their families about why the dangerous trek up north can be worth it and what it can cost them. He shares their stories and testimonials with us.
