"Angelica was born two months premature and carried in that fragile state across the U.S.-Mexico border en route to the meat-processing town of Grand Island, Neb. In April 2005, after days of refusing food, 1-year-old Angelica had eaten a corn tortilla. 'I was happy,' her mother Maria Luis, then 33, recalls. Maria, an undocumented immigrant, had returned to Grand Island after spending several months tending to her dying mother in Guatemala. She was hoping she could get back her old job at JBS Swift & Company processing plant, pulling nerves from freshly butchered beef." (12/20/11)
