    American-born Ignacio Pina, 81, returned to the USA after 16 years in Mexico.

    Pina, then 6, at right front row, and siblings lived in Montana before they were deported.



    By Wendy Koch, USA TODAY
    His father and oldest sister were farming sugar beets in the fields of Hamilton, Mont., and his mother was cooking tortillas when 6-year-old Ignacio Piña saw plainclothes authorities burst into his home.

    Have they filed suits yet?
    Americans suffered during the depression also.
    You were not welcome in Mexico? I guess you were not welcome here either.
