Fernando and Gaby Lorely Lara are pictured with their two children Ulysses and Faith in happier days. After a lengthy, multi-year struggle with the federal government, Fernando will be deported to Mexico sometime this month. As a result, his wife and children will give up the life they love in the Ellsworth area to remain together as a family by joining him in Mexico.


ELLSWORTH – Like any other American family, Gaby and Fernando Lara have everything in life to look forward to. A loving and happy marriage, two young children, good jobs in a community that cares about them, and a nice home that they have worked hard to purchase and maintain.

But the problem is, they're not American citizens – a situation that both would very much like to change, if the United States government ever provides a pathway for them to do so. 

However, that isn't likely to happen any time soon, as Gaby Lorely Lara is planning to give everything up she loves so much in Antrim County to reunite her family as soon as possible with her husband, who is scheduled to be deported to Mexico later this month.
