From Immigration Watchdog:

Many of the family members don’t speak English, so Huntington Mayor Hilary Gordon said she hugged them, put her hands over her heart and then clasped them together to let them know she was praying for them, she said.”Past experience tells us these things don’t go very well,” said Gordon, whose husband is a former miner.

Still, the families “seem to have a quiet determination at this point,” she told Fox News on Tuesday morning.

Outside the senior center, Ariana Sanchez, 16, said her father Manuel Sanchez, 42, was among the trapped miners. She said she cried when her mother told her the news, and declined to say more.

Other than Sanchez, little was known about the six miners, but Mexico’s consul in Salt Lake City, Salvador Jimenez, said Tuesday that three of the men are Mexican citizens.

From Forbes. And yes, I am suggesting they are possible illegal aliens. I wonder if any of the violations reported by the media include the hiring of illegal aliens by this employer?
