An Ideal World

An Ideal World

When Felipe Montes was deported in 2010, he lost everything, and watched from a distance as the life he’d made fell apart. His American-born sons were sent to foster care, and his parental rights were on the verge of being revoked. This is the unlikely story of a father and the flawed system that nearly destroyed his family. Produced by Nancy López and reported in collaboration with Seth Freed Wessler.
