Covering the immigration issue on NewsOK
We added another key piece of coverage on NewsOK this weekend.
Reporters Ron Jackson and Vallery Brown covered the immigration story as it relates to Oklahoma.
Ron’s story focused on a family that had been in Oklahoma City for years before the oldest son was deported. The family is separated and desperate.
“For all those people who don’t want us in America, I just wish for one day they could walk in our shoes — just for a day,” Gabriel Jr. said. “Then they might understand better. Then they would know what it felt like to be on the other side.”
Ron’s story sparked quite a series of comments from people who wanted a voice on that story. Here are a couple of examples:
