The deportation of Gloria provides for the connection between Ana and Jeannette's families since Jeannette takes in Ana for a short while. The story comes full circle when Ana connects with Carmen, Jeeannette's mother, at the end.

I agree with Marcie, that the incident links the two families. The brief time that Jeannette takes care of Ana becomes an unselfish act in Jeannette's life of questionable choices.
