Navigating Life And Love As A Mixed Status Couple
Bernardo Martinez Cordova's story is not so different from other Mexican immigrants who come to the U.S. illegally. He easily obtained false identification and quickly found work as a dishwasher. He planned on spending a few years in the U.S. to save money to help his parents and six siblings in Veracruz. But, when he and American citizen Kara Davis became pregnant he decided to stay. Bernardo has lived in California for ten years. He and Kara are raising three children under the constant threat of deportation. They hope the foundation they're building for their family doesn't suddenly crumble under them.
Part 3 of the documentary series will air in May as our year-long initiative examining undocumented immigration in California concludes. View the stories at capradio.org/undocumentedca.
