Latino Family Separated by Trump’s Public Charge Policies is Reunited -

Under former President Trump, a father from California’s Central Valley was separated from his family when he left for Mexico for his last immigration appointment. The same thing happened to thousands of legal residency applicants whose U.S. citizen children had applied for welfare benefits and were thus considered a “public charge.” Now that President Biden has reversed the controversial policy, José Luis Ruiz Arévalos was able to legally return to his family after almost four years of separation. EdSource digital magazine reporter and Radio Bilingüe contributor Zaidee Stavely followed his story and witnessed the emotional family reunion. She reports from Los Baños, California. This story was produced in collaboration with EdSource.
