Love loses as spouses of U.S. citizens are detained during marriage interviews.  

A terrifying trend is unfolding as DHS sets traps to deport undocumented spouses of American citizens. In an attempt to obtain a Green Card for her non-citizen spouse, Alyse Sanchez filed to legalize the immigration status of her husband, Elmer.  

Elmer, a father of two young children under the age of five, was detained during the couple’s marriage interview and was held for deportation proceedings.
