In Spanish, Lucia asked the candidates what they would do to stop deportations -- her husband, who she called a "hard worker," was deported three years ago, separating him from herself and her children.

"What can you do to stop the deportations?" Lucia asked the candidates in Spanish, with the moderator translating. [Washington Post3/9/16]
