'Leading Ladies' Hatch Plan to Reunite Families on Other Side of US-Mexico Border

A group of Mexican women haven’t seen their husbands and sons for years. Can an ingenious plan involving a touring theatre show finally get them into the US to be reunited with their loved ones? (SBS Dateline)

“It’s been 12 years since I’ve seen them,” mom Rosa tells Dateline's Aaron Thomas. “They’re the most important thing I have in the world, my children.”
Her sons left when they were 16 and 18 and are now undocumented migrants in the United States… just two of more than 12 million Mexicans living there.

Rosa has kept her sons' bedroom exactly as they left it. "I don’t come here often, because when I see them it breaks my heart," she says.

Hers is a familiar story in the town of San Francisco Tetlanohcan. The men aren’t even able to visit, because crossing the border back into Mexico would be illegal and dangerous.

“I pray a lot that nothing happens to them,” Rosa says. “That they won’t get caught, and they’ll achieve their dreams.”
