Caught in the Crossfire of the Immigration Debate



    Monday night, hundreds of people are expected to turn out for a meeting in San Jose with Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren on the topic of immigration reform. Many will be giving personal testimonials.

    Lofgren will use the information gathered from the forum and take it with her to Capitol Hill for use in her debates there.
    Among the testimonials Monday evening will be that of 8-year-old Crystal Destiny. She says she hasn't been with her parents since they were deported when she was an infant. She herself is an American citizen and lives here with her aunt.
    Her supporters say Crystal’s story is one of thousands across the country where families are separated after deportation.
