Because of his undocumented status Roberto is being exploited by his employer. There were several times when Roberto failed to receive payment for the work he completed.

Most recently Roberto fell off of a roof on a job he was working on, because he was working in the country illegally he didn’t receive workers compensation.
Joey Sanchez is the son of Emilia Sanchez. His problems and concerns are tied in with the rest of the family’s problems, primarily Celia and Hector Sanchez.

    So honestly teenagers should not even have the choice to do such a horrible thing to their kid, it should be their parents opinion because MOST teenagers will have an abortion because of the responsibility that comes with having a child.

It also creates an exclusion of the other step-parent, Justin, and increases the likelihood of behavioural difficulties for the child (Johnson, 2010). Kae unconsciously develops coping skills, such as aggression, to handle both personal and family problems.

Given Michelle’s personal stress from home and work, she becomes emotionally detached with symptoms of major depressive disorder.…
