AP) NEW BEDFORD Gov. Deval Patrick on Wednesday said federal authorities are blocking access to factory workers detained in an immigration raid, and raised concerns that children of the suspected illegal immigrants are not receiving proper care.
Patrick asked U.S. Rep. William Delahunt, D-Mass., to assist the state Department of Social Services in gaining access to the workers detained at the former Fort Devens military base after a raid Tuesday at Michael Bianco Inc.

Sucks for those kids. It sucks their fathers abandoned their families in Mexico and ran under the cover of darkness over the boarder and knocked up a bunch of women who were over here in the same situation and had a bunch of kids when they were in the worst possible situation to have a bunch of kids.
Last night when this story came on I was yelling at the TV "thats not the story!" and my roomates were like "shut up I want to know about these poor kids."
Meanwhile everyone forgets the company employing these people was contracted by the government.
Whats more important? A sappy, boo-hoo the kids story or our government is using illegal labor all the while pushing for an American Union and insitsing to us it isnt doing either?
