For this episode of Latino USA, we meet the De La Rosa family, four U.S.-born siblings who are defying the odds and making it work despite being separated from their mother: from 15-year-old Naomi taking on the mom role at home, to Jim, the oldest, joining the military in hopes of getting his mom legal status in the U.S. We also talk to Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles about how immigration policies can put local governments between a rock and a hard place.
