9. I hope this story has a good ending, but I doubt it.
Imagine a scenario where Antonio Diaz Chacon had some how come into a great deal of wealth, rather than saving this child from what would most likely have been a horrific death. If that had been the case, I suspect that legal residency and citizen ship would be expedited, but I think the reward for saving a child will merely be expedited deportation.

I really hope that I'm wrong.
