Young Aida Hernandez was born in Mexico near the border; her mother took her and her siblings to Arizona when she was eight. Despite having a child in America at the age of 16, Aida was later deported to a country she barely knew. Aaron Bobrow-Strain fleshes out her story of trying to reunite with her son, revealing how unforgiving and indifferent the US immigration system can be.
