All over this fine land of ours, immigrant families are being ripped apart because of an outdated immigration system that almost everyone agrees needs fixing. These stories, which you almost never see covered by major media, are heartbreaking and deserving of a real place in our national conversation. If you're outraged by this video, don't just fume at your keyboard — pick up a phone, call Immigration and Customs Enforcement at (202) 732-3000, and stop Ruth's deportation.
