    This kind of story sends the mesage that the U.S. allows breakdowns in the law or its enforcement. Profit must not trump the law of the land or the laws of decency. We all suffer! Who employs those that are here illegaly and therefore support this enterprise? While this is not the only wrong in the world, it is a good place to clean house and send the correct vision of the U.S.! Or we could do as some would want and just shoot the bastards responsable…

    I wonder if I’ve walked by one of the girls described in the article, not having a clue what her situation was. Really heartwrenching, but also infuriating.
