The six brothers and sisters ambled down the hill in this ranching village, singing, laughing and kicking rocks, serenaded by cock-a-doodle-doos and baaa-baaas. There were Omar and Teresa and Noe and Maria and Carlos and Marcos, followed by their mother, Gabriela Ireta, who shooed away stray dogs and steered her children around the puddles and potholes. "Here comes the mama duck and her ducklings," the villagers liked to say.
In their cluttered one-room house, six backpacks hung from a wall, six plates of chicken and beans lined the table at dinner, six bikes and helmets crowded a corner. The boys slept in one bed; the girls in another. In the morning, they would shower in groups and barrel out the door to get to school on time. Bus drivers did double-takes. Schoolmates jostled for a peek. Teachers came from miles around to study their progress. Sextuplets! In this part of Mexico, the central state of Guanajuato, no one had ever seen such a thing. Only four other sets of sextuplets existed in all of Mexico. "We saw them as a blessing," said Janet Ramirez, who watches the family walk by her house on the way to school. But others didn't know what to make of the sextuplets, who showed up one morning three years ago, not long before their sixth birthday. When Teresa and Maria skipped rope, they counted in English. And the boys preferred passing a football instead of kicking a soccer ball. At home, the children would badger their mother: When will we see our father again? Will we ever get our own beds to sleep in? Why do people call us gringos?

There are plenty of Americans in dire straits...the media should focus on them...and especially the WHITE ones....
and fertility treatments! wow, they got the best of everything we could buy, didn’t they!
And they probably still receive SNAP or other benefits for their “poor” family, which go a lot farther in Mexico.
And the family doesn’t have to be split by the border. The father can join his family in Mexico.
