At the risk of seeming cynical, what's the rest of the story here? Why was Naomi seperated from her mother for 12 years? Based on her current age, she was away from her mother prior to age 6. Who cared for her, and why isn't she back in their care if her mother is unable to provide her with a home now?

E-verify would help these two mothers to get jobs. Making sure that jobs are filled by legal workers would give them a better chance at landing the job, and probably a better wage as employers wouldn't be able to get away with slave wages. I'm assuming of course, that these mothers are in the US legally, as the Tribune would be negligent if they highlighted illegal immigrants in a story like this without disclosing their status.
