Too Long; Didn't Read

Melissa Sanchez: My father grew up in rural Mexico in the 1950s. He worked at a massive recycling facility in Mexico City. Sanchez: He immigrated to the U.S. when he was 17 with two cousins and a man from a nearby village. He says the children of Guatemalan immigrants are now “essential workers’s” He says they work overnight in factories in suburban Chicago, sometimes in dangerous conditions, sometimes hurt and are vulnerable to exploitation. Sanchez: Americans who seemed to pay so much attention to Central American children at the border should know how challenging their lives are today.
