A piece of this interview aired on KCRW’s Morning Edition on Dec. 16. 

Devi Ramirez, 26, doesn’t quite remember the first time she came to the

301 Moved Permanently


She was 2 years old when her father carried her over to come here. Her family then settled in MacArthur Park.

But when she was 7, her grandmother got sick. She and her mother left to visit her ill grandmother in Acapulco, Mexico. They had to cross the

border, again  — this time her father wasn’t there to carry her.

“And then the *migra came,” Devi said. “So everybody scattered, even my mom — she took off and 301 Moved Permanently they left me there.”
