This church album portrait (July 2004) was taken eight months before Regina was abruptly snatched from her family by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). The following March, when armed agents drove off with their Mommy, Christopher was just four, Lydia was five. Ignoring the agents' protests, Regina had hugged each child in turn, and then her husband David--all of them in tears.
Listen to Regina tell her story to Milwaukee's Archbishop Jerome Listecki on his bi-weekly radio program, "Living Your Faith" on Relevant Radio: http://www.livingourfaith.net/home/RadioShow/S1e57.htm.
