Mom released from immigration custody says system is broken

A Rhode Island mother of two young children who was released this week after a month in immigration detention says the system is broken and it's too easy for people like her to fall into the cracks.

Thirty-year-old Lilian Calderon, who was brought to the U.S. from Guatemala at age 3, was released Tuesday after Immigration and Customs Enforcement granted her a three-month stay of deportation. A federal judge barred her deportation last week after the American Civil Liberties Union sued.
