He gave up his chance to earn money for the two families he supported to care for the boy, what an awesome man!<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">An illegal immigrant who gave up his long walk into the U.S. to help a boy whose mother was killed in a van crash in the desert said Wednesday that he never thought of leaving the child.<br><br>
"I am a father of four children. For that, I stayed," Manuel Jesus Cordova Soberanes said in Spanish from his home in the Mexican state of Sonora. "I never could have left him. Never."</td>

I just can't wrap my head around that they took him into custody in the first place. Sheesh. Very awesome man indeed!

Hello.. teach this man English and give him a green card!

Anyone else not like the tone of the article? Is it just me??<br><br>
Awww...how nice of the paper to run a 'good' story about a Mexican. 'See America, Mexicans aren't all bad!' Should be the headline. What's with the angle that it's so surprising that he <i>didn't</i> leave the kid to die in the desert?<br><br>
It's so great that this guy found the boy and was able to help him - he is a hero.

It is *definitely* a bit sad that America (the world even?) has become so jaded and negative about it's neighbors. I'd like to hope that the *intent* was to convey what he was giving up for his families in order to help this little boy, that he did it knowing that he would be 'on the radar' after that and very likely unable to enter the US to work and send that money home...<br><br>
Well I'd like to hope anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I think that mayor or whomever it was needs to start looking at helping this guy get permanent legal immigration instead of a temp visa to be recognized for his actions. I can't think of a better 'recognition' than here sir, welcome to the United States! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

I think there should be a letter or email writing campaign for this. He deserves to stay here that child could have died out there alone. He stayed knowing they would most likely send him back.
