Don't Stay And Don't Go

Last year's immigration raid at Howard Industries in Mississippi remains the largest such raid in American history. Flor was among those picked up at the plant that day. She's now wearing an ankle bracelet that allows Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to monitor her movement while she awaits a hearing that could lead to her deportation. Flor is from Mexico, but her children were born in the U.S. She'd rather leave voluntarily, but Flor has been told she can't leave the state. She talks to Dick Gordon about the day of the raid, her hopes for the future, and how she and her husband are getting by financially while they wait. This story originally aired on February 11, 2009.
