Scope/Content: Victoria Rua lost touch with her children in Mexico in the 1970s when her husband was deported from the United States. He doubted her fidelity and cut off communication for ten years. They were reconciled almost twenty years ago. Recently she came to the United States to renew her papers and stayed to work, while he lives in Mexico on their small farm.
