Deported Turlock mom now secure with new papers, feeling of freedom

In 2010, Maria Isabel Chaparro was yanked from her home and deported to her native Honduras. In December, she was allowed to return on probation. In May, she was given her permanent resident green card and now has her California driver’s license and U.S. passport. She says those are the hallmarks of real freedom.
