Saying goodbye at Logan Airport is a familiar, if painful, scene for the four Macario brothers. Just two years ago, they said goodbye to their father when he was deported back to his native Guatemala.
And early Wednesday morning, the oldest brother, Isidro, faced the same fate.
Accompanied by federal immigration officers through airport security, Isidro was bound for deportation back to Guatemala, where he was born.
“I love you,” younger brother Erwin said to Isidro.
This is a family separated, one by one, along strict lines: their immigration status.
