“In the Country We Love.”

Actress Diane Guerrero, best known for her star roles in the TV hits “Jane the Virgin and “Orange is the New Black,” has written a memoir titled “In the Country We Love: My Family Divided,” where she tells her heartbreaking story of the time when, as a young teenager, came home from school and found it deserted. Her parents had been detained and later deported to Colombia by immigration officers. She also tells about the personal costs, the way she has coped with deportation and her family’s efforts to stay together. This is a repeat program, to mark the fourth anniversary of DACA, the program that has provided temporary protection for more than 700,000 young immigrants.

Guest: Diane Guerrero, Actress, Author, New York, NY; Attorney Rosalba Piña, Immigration Law Expert, Chicago, IL.
