SAN DIEGO — The father of a special needs student at Scripps Ranch High School may be sent back to Mexico in a matter of days.

The tougher enforcement of immigrantion laws that began when President Donald Trump took officer in January threatens to turn the lives of Gaston Cazares and his family upside down.

Gaston has been chasing the American dream since he was 16 years old and moved to this country illegally, leaving behind his family and everything he knew. Now, facing possible deportation back to Mexico under the Trump administration’s harsher interpretation of the law, he may have to do it all over again.
