This horrific story might hopefully remind some people how hard “illegals” work.

I got a peek inside this factory last May with my friend Sam. The workers could not have been nicer, despite the language gap. They even gave my friend Sam a free package of Tortillas after rightfully making fun of his bad Spanish.

My thoughts go out to the family and friends of Juan.
