Lost Souls

Filmmaker Monika Navarro was 21 years old when she began making a film about her uncle Gino, who was deported from the U.S. and died in Tijuana, where he was buried in an unmarked grave. Two months later, her uncle Augie was also deported; both had been legal U.S. residents, military veterans - and drug addicts. Lost Souls explores the impact of deportation set against the backdrop of increased attention to the US-Mexican border. To view a preview clip, see here.

Dear Editor:
David Murray's response (2/1/10 ID) to my letter (1/28/10 ID) is again incorrect. A pending adjustment of status application has always been a defense to deportation/removal, as affirmed in hundreds of administrative and judicial decisions, following INA section 245. This has repeatedly been upheld by the Attorney General and the Justice Department. Accordingly, it is not just fleeting "policy" as Murray's letter claims that counsels against institution of removal proceedings for somebody with a pending adjustment application. My letter did not state there is a statute that "tolls" institution of removal proceedings for such persons, and there should not be a need for any such statute.
