Pregnant Queens mother released from ICE custody, reunited with children

NEW YORK — A 33-year-old mother from Queens spent nearly three months separated from her family when she was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents at a Queens courthouse back in April.

It was an emotional scene when Alma Centeno-Santiago returned home over the weekend.

Although she has been reunited with her family, Centeno-Santiago’s ordeal is not over. She’s due back in court for another hearing.

The mother of three joined PIX11 to discuss what happened and what it’s been like since reuniting with her family.
