Un-Wanted: The Deportation of an Immigrant Michigan Family's American Dream
Local 4's documentary follows Michigan family's deportation story
On April 26, 2018, Cile Projecti Gochivic kissed her children goodbye as they boarded the bus in front of her Sterling Heights Michigan home.
She went to her regularly scheduled check-in with an immigration officer in Detroit. She often takes her children with her -- that day she did not.
She walked into the immigration office -- she didn’t walk out. She was arrested on the spot. After 18 years of fighting to stay in her adopted Country, she was out of options and out of time.
"Un-Wanted: The Deportation of an Immigrant Michigan Family's American Dream" follows the heartbreaking story of a Michigan family torn apart and uprooted after decades of fighting for citizenship.
