MARIO

A year after graduating with honors from Chelsea High School, Mario was arrested in an immigration raid. Immigration agents (ICE) came to his house looking for a criminal who didn’t live there, arresting Mario instead and initiating deportation proceedings. Mario’s dream is to go to college, but instead he must fight to stay in the country he considers home. Mario is one of many individuals without criminal records who have been caught in sweeps ICE agents describe as targeting criminals.
