In a rural county that voted for Trump, people are shocked to see friends deported and schoolmates disappear.

Now a community is coming to terms with the economic and emotional consequences.

The Trump team insists the actions of the deportation force, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), is simply a matter of applying the law and delivering a key election pledge.

This story is part of the BBC’s coverage of President Trump’s first year, with reporting from across the US and perspectives from all sides.
