Mississippi immigration raids thrust kids into adult roles. They're still children

Even the youngest children of the undocumented immigrants swept up in workplace immigration raids across Mississippi were suddenly thrust into adulthood. But they're still kids.

There is a happy ending to this story. They go back to Freddy’s native country, the family stays together, little Marleny Lopez has her quinceañera, and from there they can apply to come to America legally. Parents took a chance, had 5 children that have benefited from tax payer funded programs AFTER they came here illegally - how do they support a family of 7 working in a meat packing plant even with both parents working? I doubt they pay very much in the way of taxes. They are taking jobs away from legal citizens. I feel badly for this family but as I said - they took a chance but now it’s time to pay the piper for knowingly breaking our laws.

It is really interesting that the government takes their taxes. They are a very hard working lot. Let's see some lily white asses out in a field harvesting in the hot sun. they would not last 10 minutes.
