Chicago: Little Mexico

  • Aired: 10/30/2006
  • 19:20
  • Rating: NR
Elvira Arellano is an illegal Mexican immigrant living in Chicago with a deportation order -- and a 7-year-old American-born son. As a first-generation Polish immigrant who lived in Chicago for nearly 25 years, reporter Marian Marzynski brings a unique perspective to the story of migration to the United States, interweaving Arelleno's story with Chicago's history as an immigrant city.
