7. This is just sickening.

Sadly, there are stories like this all over America.

In the town of Elyria, Ohio, a Catholic bishop tried to intervene against the deportation of a man who has for nearly 14 years been the primary caregiver to his oldest son, who is 28 years old and wheelchair bound. His son suffers from cerebral palsy and is unable to care for himself.

This story is from last fall and appeared in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

It's unreal to read many of the comments after the article who say "illegal is illegal, he should go" and "you start making an exception for one, then they will all have sob stories," etc. etc.
