LOSING A CHILD IN THE TRANSLATION. A court in Mississippi is about to terminate the parental rights of a Mexican immigrant woman who also faces the risk of deportation. By court order, the U.S. born child may be given in adoption to a local family. Advocates challenge the process arguing that the woman, a Chatino-speaking migrant from the highlands in Southern Mexico, has not been able to defend herself. She does not speak English or Spanish. The forced-adoption case of Chatina migrant Cirila Baltazar is examined in this program.
