Last week i worked on a story about immigration and california’s resistance to the trump administration for the washington post. at the end of my last day covering the story i met a 24 year old woman named vianney sanchez (pictured here). she is a recent uc santa cruz graduate and a dreamer. last august, vianney’s parents were forced to leave their lives and children behind and return to mexico. vianney is now the primary caretake for her 16 year old sister and 12 year old brother.
quoting the article:
"in particular, schaaf (oakland mayor libby schaaf) said, she was disturbed by the case of maria mendoza sanchez, a bilingual oncology nurse, homeowner and mother of four who was forced to leave the united states in august with her husband, eusebio. these are two law-abiding, hard-working oaklanders that have lived in my city for 23 years,” schaaf said. “but under this administration they were deported. they were ripped away from their four children.”
