Carlos is the US-born son of a Guatemalan immigrant, who was detained in a raid at poultry processing plant in 2007. While his mother was caught up in the legal system, Carlos was adopted by an American family. As KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross reports, this situation may be becoming more and more common.</p> Mon, 06 Dec 2010 18:15:11 +0000 Sylvia Maria Gross 7341 at http://kcur.org Missouri Supreme Court Considers Fate of Adopted Son of Guatemalan Immigrant
