Carlos Lopez works for tips washing windshields during red lights.
"I'm on the streets because I'm on my own," said the baby-faced 13-year-old.
But Carlos wants to do more than survive; he's trying to save money to join his parents in the United States.
Carlos' parents departed for Texas last year to work. The plan: Send money back to Honduras for Carlos and his three younger siblings, who were left with their grandmother.
But that's not enough to support the whole family, so Carlos said he set off on his own.
Now, he's living on the streets.

There are seven billion sad stories on this planet. I don’t have enough money to take care of every sad story a liberal hears.

If their desire is to pick produce, that can be done at home.
If their desire is to escape a corrupt government, hello, what do they think this “agreement” that permits them to ignore our nation’s laws is?
Here comes the propaganda campaign....Bernays and Goebbels would be proud!
I am sure the mansion in Martha’s Vineyard where the Obama’s are spending their vacation has an extra room or two.
They are coming to the wrong country then.
Little street thugs — looking for richer victims.
But,but,your poor people are so fat!
Tell momma to go back to Honduras
That's a great idea! These poor kids have been through so much, and I'm sure they would really appreciate a chance to chill at a cool place like Martha's Vineyard.
I think we should dump them all there.
why don’t they go to Costa Rica....free and MUCH closer!!!
So, where are U.S. and U.N sanctions on these corrupt governments?
....Bernays and Goebbels would be proud!
Who is Bernays?
....Bernays and Goebbels would be proud!
Never mind. I know who he was.
Look it up. Goebbels credits him with showing him the way.

Got enough of the domestic windshield washer types; don’t need any imports. Stay home, Carlos.
Look him up.
I remembered. :)
Call the WAAAHMBULANCE!
Then call Libtards and tell them with their guilt and their gelt, you will tell them how to solve the Bambino Latrino Invasion.
It’s not our problem, kid.
The Disappearance of Children Throughout Latin America
Send these kids back - their parents are probably looking for many of them
So this mother and father abandoned their 12 year old? These are the people Obama and the Democrats want to give handouts too? Make citizens off?
If this is designed to get my sympathy-I’m fresh out, and one part of it is BS, as far as I know-the woman whose kid wants to see daddy who is supposedly a legal US resident shouldn’t have a problem getting a visa, taking the kid and boarding the transportation mode of choice and getting here legally, where she can apply to stay-also legally because her husband came here the right way-IF her story is true, that is...
Either she doesn’t have the sense to ask someone at a consulate about that, or her husband left her there without the intention of sending for her-there is no law that says he has to...
As for the rest, cry me a river...
Mario Mejia, a spokesman for the Honduran presidential delegation, said the first lady was in the Valley to see the conditions under which the detained immigrants are being held and to help find ways to bring those expatriates back home.
“As long as (U.S.) immigration reform is not approved, the exodus of children to the United States will continue,” Jorge Ramon Hernandez, senior representative of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez
I don’t care.
My BIL is now a naturalized citizen from Honduras. It took his niece literally 10 years of applications before she was able to obtain a visa to visit him and my sister here in the states....This goes back over 10 years ago.
How about, “Stay in Honduras and fight for freedom?”
Carlos’ parents abandoned him to come and work illegally in the U.S.? And they’ve been gone for a year? The answer is to find their sorry butts and kick them back to Honduras. That might or might not be a favor to Carlos but it is the right thing to do.
Nancy Pelosi’s Vineyard might have some extra space too. If the situation is really desperate maybe a few could stay on John Kerry’s yacht.. If all the rich liberals in Congress paid their fair share (for the greater good) this problem could get solved in a jiffy.
I feel really sorry for the kid.
Maybe we should round up his parents and send them back so they can be reunited with Carlos and his baby brothers and sisters.
This makes me mad. Rather than expecting us to feel sorry for the kid (which I do) the article should be demanding that those parents be found ASAP and immediately deported home to take care of their children, and never ever allow them to return, not only did they break our laws by sneaking into this country illegally, but they abandoned their children which is the on of the most egregiously immoral acts imaginable! What is wrong with the media?
Carlos is escaping nothing. He gets here he will still be poor and uneducated.
That is a threat; we should cut off remittances to that country.
Another “Dreamer”, come to the USA at Obama’s behest.
Talk to the hand. They’re more than welcome if they came in by knocking on the front door rather than sneaking through the back.
I still think the American people support this “invasion” in varying forms and degrees. If the MS people were opposed, for instance, wouldn’t they have emphatically rejected Cochran instead of just barely doing so through fraud?
