a family. many people dream of seeking a better future in the u.s. most arrive legally but about eleven million immigrants in the country are believed to be undocumented they come from across the globe in recent years most have come from mexico guatemala el salvador and honduras they're fleeing gang crime violence and poverty many children on mothers with their children. around sixty percent of undocumented immigrants have lived in the country for more than a decade. have at least one child who is a u.s. citizen by birth and they own their own home. rose escobar was living a fulfilled life in texas she met the love of her life at the age of fourteen later they found jobs and had a family. but one day everything changed rose's husband. jose who's from el

salvador was torn away from her and their two children. ok rose i need you to be strong and i said oh ok you know they deported me. they see it coming jose was undocumented when he arrived in the u.s. as a young man he never got into trouble with your thora g.'s when rose picks up her eight year old son water from the school bus stop he's proud to show her his work from class. maybe. rose's neighbors and looking after her younger daughter carmen without their help rose wouldn't be able to manage her job at a children's hospital her husband jose is a carpenter and thought their house would be a secure place for the family but then young common saw her father taken away at first she wasn't able to speak now she's found her voice again.
1:33 pm
and again made me. cry just like. she. did you do she was able to open the smart like you. interest me rose once her children to remember jose as their father and not as someone who's been deported. he had been crying because there were tears on the. yank. five men around him like he was a criminal and i want to know. what's going on in the whole thing goes i'm sorry and i said what are you sorry for me. he was already changed. that was more than a year and a half ago because he has been living in el salvador ever since but he feels no connection with the country he left at the age of fifteen rows still tries to keep
1:34 pm
him up to date on their family's day to day news. because it was already detained for being undocumented seven years ago but he was later released the family's lawyer has had no luck obtaining u.s. citizenship for him. it's because obama had a certain way of saying. that weren't hurtful similar meaning but no one is hurt for. this president the way he expresses himself it's like we're not humans. stuff that's here in the world for now. rose can't except her husband situation she takes part in protests against president trump and his supporters. that was. my first but since rose went public with her story she's received a lot of hate mail. and said dear mrs kumar.
1:35 pm
how stupid are you to make me want immigrant and then i'm going to put spare money so you can make children. kill them and kill yourself you're not american you have nothing that's american in you. i can't read the red. roses trying to shield her children from this hatred she wants them to live as normal a life as possible. to celebrate the birthdays she buys the modest pin yachters to save money for household bills if she wants to keep her family's dream alive. here in the united states. the land of opportunity people are coming here for what the american dream. that's all gone. lady liberty's pie just looking down shaking her head like what happened to america.
1:36 pm
it's. just the whole family pray together every night for jose's return. so so. so for that i really hope. that person a higher. in the line. in them. for thirteen years in n.-g. o. from washington d.c. called the fund for peace has published an index rating countries for their social political and economic stability things are particularly critical in south sudan somalia and yemen where for the past three years saudi arabia and iran have been waging a proxy war the result an entire generation is growing up in desperate poverty nearly two million children in yemen are unable to attend school one point eight
1:37 pm
million a mile nourished and of those four hundred thousand are acutely malnourished and in urgent need of medical care. these people are harvesting their lunch leaves from a local wild vine and nothing else because there isn't anything else no bread no rice no pastor the family have to fend for themselves. we haven't had help from a new organization. house time and again if they could help the families suffering because of the war go out of. the jobs are one of many families who have fled to the remote hard to region to escape the fighting between the saudi led coalition and the who the rebels this part of hodge's not far from the capital sanaa about two hundred kilometers but the mountains here are high. so the airstrikes have
1:38 pm
destroyed or damaged many roads in the area making it difficult for relief supplies to get. through. this is why families like the d. obs are subsisting on leaves in a desperate attempt to fend off starvation. that the children are weak undernourished and often sick. so you can check i know what well my husband still had a job we could buy all sorts of things rice fish chicken milk juice anything yeah you had me i see a good head at end of it. you. family's story is a common one in yemen. the main hospital and treats many malnourished children if they can get there. according to local pediatricians that can be
1:39 pm
a major obstacle. one of them and i'm up with eating there are a lot of people are sick but are simply unable to reach the hospital and there is no organization helping people get to the hospital and that's why more people are dying. the children who are treated here have at least a chance of surviving. but for some of the starving children the help they get here is too little too late . the idea he and i did on the number of malnourished children is higher than a twenty seventeen and i think it is a different feel from parish. every ten minutes a child dies in yemen of preventable causes according to the u.n.
1:40 pm
children's fund unicef almost two million children are seriously malnourished as a result of war in the country a lack of medical supplies is exacerbating what's already a humanitarian crisis the doctors can't treat everyone and have to set priorities. and his children experience this firsthand at the refugee camp and. now movie have conditions here are really bad our children are always getting sick but when we take them to the doctors they turn them away because they only treat the most severe cases and as that moment in the head of them hop into. the armor is son meets up with his friends here in the mountains of football is one of the boy's few joys. we hope that we can go back to school. right now we only play football. when i was in third grade my family still had
