In their narrative, the Quiroz family shares how the deportation of Juan Quiroz triggers the family’s constant travel between the US and Mexico to remain a family unit. Although Juan is a childhood arrival who entered the US as a permanent resident and is a military veteran, he was deported to Mexico. His spouse, Marissa, makes the case that Juan’s military service should be sufficient to his return to the country he served. The children of the marriage also share the effects of their father’s deportation and their hope for a life together in St. Louis.
