RIGOBERTO GONZÁLEZ GREW UP IN A FAMILY OF IMMIGRANT FARMERWORKERS. NOW HE WRITES AWARD-WINNING BOOKS / RIGOBERTO GONZÁLEZ / LOS ANGELES TIMES
In 1980, I arrived with my family to the U.S.-Mexico border from Michoacán with what little we could bring with us on the three-day journey by bus. Not long after, once more members of our extended family joined the migration, 19 of us moved into a tiny apartment in Thermal, Calif., where we didn’t have much privacy or personal space for the next few years. My brother and cousins took to the streets to claim that independence, but as the introvert among the group of 11 kids, I reached for the books.

Jeanette Vizguerra knew she had an appointment with immigration officers, as she had many times in the past. But this time, she didn’t show up.

Vizguerra also got word of the 23-year-old “Dreamer” who was arrested near Seattle; like her oldest daughter, he had been protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

COST OF BORDER WALL IS LESS THAN COST OF SERVICES FOR ILLEGALS: REPORT / STEPHEN DINAN / THE WASHINGTON TIMES
If President Trump’s border wall stopped just 10 percent of new illegal immigrants it would pay for itself by saving American taxpayers from spending money on services for those migrants over their lifetimes, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies. The center, which advocates for a crackdown on immigration, said illegal border crossers are a net drain of nearly $75,000 per person over their lifetimes. Stopping just 200,000 border-jumpers over the next decade would save some $15 million.
