Nelly Boyette was an undocumented immigrant from Peru when she met her future husband, Jeff. He was a day laborer at the local flea market that carried a radio with a sticker telling immigrants to speak English. The unlikely couple fell in love and got married. They were happy until immigration officials threatened deportation on the grounds of marriage fraud. It was then that the flea market community came to their rescue.
