Eleven-year-old Marcos will have been in foster care for two years in June, while his mother remains in a federal detainment facility in Texas for being in the country illegally.
Already previously deported once, Gloria, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico, was charged with felony re-entry when she came forward seeking custody of her son. Marcos had been placed in foster care after being abused by his father here in Washtenaw County.
When Gloria found out, she set out to reunite with her son. But it's been an impossible battle with her immigration status working against her, and there's little she can do now from the detainment facility she's in as she awaits deportation.
Other undocumented relatives living in the Ann Arbor area have come forward seeking custody of Marcos, who is a dual citizen of the United States and Mexico, on Gloria's behalf.
They, too, have had no luck. Marcos has aunts and uncles who say they love him and desperately want to bring him into their homes, but they're finding out their immigration status is a deal breaker.
Judge Donald Shelton, who oversees these kinds of cases, said the intersection of federal immigration enforcement and the child welfare system is where some of the ugliest battles take place. Shelton has been on the bench when tough decisions had to be made about children who are U.

Being caught a second time is a felony. In Michigan, when parents are detained because of their immigration status, they can be petitioned by the state for abandoning their children.
It means that you can't or won't. They're not present to take care of the children, and so someone has to take care of the children. But can the children be placed in the care of undocumented relatives living in the U. Shelton said there is no clear guidance in the way of federal or state policy, but he doesn't see how it's possible if the relatives are undocumented.
So that's right, if they're undocumented, then they're not going to be allowed to be guardians because it's not in the best interest of the children.
Laura Sanders, one of the co-founders of the WICIR, said she's pressed the Michigan Department of Human Services and the courts on the issue and the argument she's heard back is it's "just common sense" that children shouldn't be placed in undocumented households. Here she talks with the families affected by those decisions.
WICIR is actively speaking out about two local cases it has been tracking where undocumented parents were detained for being in the country illegally. In both cases, the parents fought unsuccessfully for custody of their children who were shuffled into foster care.
The report, called "Shattered Families," estimates as many as 5, children are now living in foster care in the U.
A mom and her son Since WICIR's inception in Marchit reports having received nearly calls, 80 percent of which involve immigrants who have been detained. Both the mother and multiple relatives have fought unsuccessfully over the last two years for custody of Marcos.
That's when he came to the attention of Child Protective Services, a division of the Michigan Department of Human Services, and was placed in temporary foster care.
Gloria, who was previously deported and living in either Mexico or Texas at the time, stepped forward to take custody of Marcos.
But according to family members, DHS decided Marcos was better off with his father.
Friends and relatives of Gloria, the mother fighting for custody of her son, talk to AnnArbor. They did not want to be identified.
But when state DHS workers found out Gloria was going to be fighting for custody, they decided to petition her for abandoning her child, Sanders said. It didn't mean she doesn't love her child.
She didn't abandoned her child. DHS service plans lay out steps a parent must take such as going to parenting classes, demonstrating there's a stable home environment and sometimes requiring drug testing.Built in , the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute is an historic landmark and the perfect venue for your special event.
