OITNB's Diane Guerrero Pens Op Ed About Family's Deportation, Breaks Down on CNN In Emotional Interview (Video)

Diane Guerrero penned a well written and thought provoking op-ed about her parent’s deportation from America when she was in high school for the LA Times over the weekend and is taking a stance on the issue of immigration.

“Throughout my childhood I watched my parents try to become legal but to no avail. They lost their money to people they believed to be attorneys, but who ultimately never helped. That meant my childhood was haunted by the fear that they would be deported,” the 28-year-old Orange is the New Black star wrote. “And then one day, my fears were realized. I came home from school to an empty house. Lights were on and dinner had been started, but my family wasn’t there. Neighbors broke the news that my parents had been taken away by immigration officers, and just like that, my stable family life was over.”

Diane went on CNN to discuss the issue, and broke down speaking about her childhood. “I’ve grown up without them, and there’s thing about them that are new that I don’t recognize, and it hurts…My parents tried forever…This system didn’t offer relief for them. What I’m asking for is to create or find a solution for families.”

'Orange is the New Black' Writer Lauren Morelli Divorces Her Husband & Begins Dating Poussey Actress Samira Wiley

Orange is the New Black writer Lauren Morelli is divorcing her husband and is now dating Samira Wiley, who plays the beloved character of Poussey on the hit show, Us Weekly reports.

Lauren recently came out in an essay for Identities.Mic a few months back, where she talked about the realization that she was homosexual even though she was married to a man.

“I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,” Lauren wrote. “It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many small details: how uncomfortable I felt around groups of lesbians or how I considered myself (shrug) a “not very sexual person.” When considered alone, these seemed like little quirks that made me me. Wanting to read a book instead of have sex is a perfectly reasonable preference to have, right?”

“I was finally forced to consider a question that had never, ever occurred to me before: Holy sh*t, am I gay?,” Lauren added.

Lauren and Samira have posted just a few pictures on social media together – they reportedly hit the 2014 Emmys together and were seen dancing and holding hands.
