Very good movie, great acting by all. Sadly, even today, many of these children can still have a better chance if their parents or their family would do the same that the congressman did for Oscar Vazquez, sponsor them, submit and request for temporary legal status (in this case based on their achievements) so they can eventually become legal resident and if they chose to, become citizens. My uncle had to do just that. It took some times, he stayed out of trouble with the law and achieved legal status. Sadly also, Mr. Vazquez illegal issues were not clearly explained; as a former investigator, I came to the conclusion that there was more to that story or he would had not found himself on the radar. There can be only 2 or 3 reasons why he was wanted, most common is due to an outstanding order of removal from am immigration judge, prior criminal history, and as the movie portrayed, filing a legal application with false information or fraud. I know people that have being illegally in the USA for years, and I have seem quite a few of them use the proper channels (applying for work permits, filing for temporary residence, etc.) and I am happy to say they are now legal residents or even US citizens.
