Meet Don Alberto. Well that’s not really his name, but it’s not too far off. He is 56 years old, about 5’2″ and has 7 kids, ranging in ages from 36 to 16. All of them are in Mexico, except for one son who is also in the States. He is from Zacapoaxtla, a town of about 8,000 people, in the Mexican state of Puebla. His wife died many years ago, but he never remarried, deciding, instead, to dedicate himself to his children. He as been in the United States for 4 years, and like most undocumented workers, has not returned home in all that time.
