More Photos from This Week's Cover Story, on a New Generation of U.S. Military Deserters in Canada
Army deserter Kim Rivera -- waiting for news on her stay of deportation -- rests while her husband Mario tends to their baby, Katie, in their Toronto apartment.
This week's cover story in the paper version of Unfair Park profiles Mesquite's Kim Rivera and her fellow Iraq war deserters fighting for refuge in Canada. Because many of them are facing deportation, the Toronto-based War Resisters Support Campaign dubbed late January "Let Them Stay Week."
Our accompanying slide show by Toronto-based photojournalist Ian Willms captures images of Private Rivera -- a 26-year-old mother of three -- and her family in their new home, as well as Airman Dale Landry of Mansfield, who deserted from Dyess Air Force Base.
