Mexican roofer tells of long hours, travel for work in U.S.

"He's traveled from North Dakota to North Carolina and from Texas to Tennessee, sometimes with family members, to get work."

"'We're working hard - 12, 14 hours a day. We don't care. We want to stay here.'"

"He said he'd been sent back to Mexico a couple of times already but had returned to this country to work."

"When told he could face jail time, he said: 'I prefer to live here two to three years in jail than Mexico.'"
