Marcos Bretón had an interesting column in the July 4 Sacramento Bee (here) about the Bustos family, now Spanish language media moguls who entered the USA unlawfully. It starts like this:
On Independence Day, we give you the story of a Mexican immigrant who came to California "illegally," imported his wife and six kids, made sure his children learned English -- and watched with pride as they made a fortune in business.
You will not find more dynamic local entrepreneurs than Amador and John Bustos, owners of a vast Spanish-language media network with headquarters in Sacramento.
We should all keep in mind that not all undocumented folks toil in the unskilled labor market. Many are small business people or in high skilled industry and professions. And, as our Immigrant of thr Day feature hopefully demonstrates, make some extraordinary contributions to thr United States.
