A Family Divided
Arizona Republic three-day series: "For almost six years, Ivonne Gil has lived apart from her husband, Mario Gil, and their 13-year-old son, Daniel, on opposite sides of the border. She was deported in 2007 and hasn’t been able to return legally to the U.S. since. Mario and Daniel drive to Nogales every weekend to visit Ivonne. Their family's separation has taken a toll on the couple's marriage and disrupted their son's life. But they hope one day soon that Ivonne will be able to return to the U.S. legally, possibly benefitting from an immigration bill introduced in the U.S. Senate in April by a group that includes Arizona Republicans John McCain and Jeff Flake."
