In many immigrant families, the legal status of family members is mixed. Some parents might have entered the country illegally, but their children are U.S. citizens. For these families, one of the most nerve-racking thoughts is being separated.

We speak with several families who share these fears, as well as Emilio Rabasa, Mexico's consul general in Boston who serves most of New England, at a recent event in Central Falls, Rhode Island.

This segment aired on April 12, 2017.
