Last week, immigration officials deported a mother of two from Falls Church, Va., despite efforts from Governor Terry McAuliffe, who said she did not present a public safety threat. In Sterling, Va., police arrested a 22-year-old undocumented resident for the murder of a Muslim teenager, Nabra Hassanen. Kojo checks in with the region’s immigrant community in the aftermath of these two events, and explores what part immigration status plays, if any, in the conversation about the tragic death of Hassanen.
