Alejandra Pablos came to the United States as a baby; it is her home, and but for a quirk of US immigration law, she would be a US citizen like her mother. Instead she is preparing for the fight of her life as she petitions her deportation case, while also tirelessly advocating for immigrant rights. Eileen Arandiga
