Married Couple Seperated By Border Finally a long time married couple living along the California border are dealing with the fact that one has been deported back to Mexico while the other a U.S. Citizen remains in the United States.  “Agustin Portillo checks the oil in his wife’s car, stores her luggage in her trunk and then drives her from his tiny apartment in Tijuana to the United States border entry port. It’s not a long trip, but Ana Portillo is afraid to maneuver the streets of this violent city by herself.
They wait patiently in the hours-long security line, holding hands and stealing chaste kisses. A romantic ballad comes on the car radio, and Agustin faintly serenades his longtime bride. Ana tries not to notice when he tears up. When they are near the checkpoint, he kisses her again before stepping out of the car. This is as far as he can go. After 20 years of living with his Ana in Los Angeles, he is stuck on the Mexican side of the fence.”
