This week, we will focus on a specific story about an immigrant detention case in Pittsburgh- and hear firsthand from family impacted by these harsh repercussions for undocumented immigrants. Martin Esquivel-Hernandez was detained after a traffic stop, held by ICE, and eventually deported, leaving his family behind in Pennsylvania. Today, we will hear his story through the eyes of his daughter’s experience, along with comments by a supporter of the family, who are still trying to be reunited with Martin. This is the first part of two episodes this month on immigration and detention.
