A mother's happy day: military spouse deported by Trump returns to family

Wife of a decorated veteran who was forced to break up her family in 2018 is one of the first beneficiaries of Bidenís program

Three years ago Alejandra Juarez fell victim to Donald Trumpís cruelty as the wife of a decorated US Marine Corps veteran and mother of two young US citizen daughters was deported to Mexico under the former presidentís zero-tolerance immigration policies.

On Saturday Juarez will rejoin her family in Florida as one of the first beneficiaries of a humanitarian program set up by Joe Bidenís administration to reunify parents Trump separated from their children.

But while Juarezís Motherís Day weekend reunion with daughters Pamela, 19, Estela, 11, and husband Temo will close a lengthy, painful journey of isolation and depression, she sees it as a door opening for other families torn apart by deportation.

ďIím happy this is behind me and my family, and hoping this will lead to a permanent solution not only for military spouses like myself, but for everyone,Ē she told the Guardian from Mťrida, Mexico, where she has been living since being forced from her home in Davenport, Florida, in 2018.
