A Netflix series released Wednesday follows eight undocumented families and features the story of a pregnant woman who was detained in the Kansas City area and deported to Honduras.

Kenia Bautista-Mayorga, who was 23 at the time, was taken into custody while she was 5 months pregnant. She fought her deportation because she feared her allegedly abusive ex-husband would harm her, their 3-year-old son and her then-unborn child.

In the series, “Living Undocumented,” cameras follow as Bautista-Mayorga’s partner, Luis Diaz, cares for her son, Noah, after she was detained. It shows Diaz become emotional when he learned her deportation appeal was denied. He can be seen praying with one of their attorneys.

In one scene shot in June 2018, Diaz stood outside Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s office on North Ambassador Drive in Kansas City, North, holding Noah and hoping to hug Bautista-Mayorga before she was deported. He asked the boy what he wanted.
