A Husband and Wife Remember Their Struggle Against Deportation

Jan 15, 2018

Alejandra Lima and Luis Cepeda

The StoryCorps mobile booth is in Austin this month, and we’re bringing you some of the stories that are being recorded there. Locally recorded stories will air on Monday and Wednesday mornings during Morning Edition and archived here.

Luis Cepeda recently sat down with his wife, Alejandra Lima, and talked about when Luis, then an undocumented immigrant, spent eight months in an ICE detention center.

This piece was produced for KUT by Michael Lee with interviews recorded at StoryCorps, a national nonprofit with a mission to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs the opportunity to record, share and preserve the stories of our lives.
