DIGEST; U.S.-Born Children to Be Reunited with Deported Dad

Article excerpt

A North Carolina judge ordered on Tuesday that three U.S.-born children be reunited with their deported Mexican father . Social services officials in rural Alleghany County had sought to terminate the parental rights of Felipe Montes, who crossed the border illegally in 2003 to work on Christmas tree farms near the town of Sparta, N.C. Montes later married a U.S. citizen, and the couple had three sons. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Montes in 2010 after he was repeatedly ticketed for driving without a license, which he was barred from getting under North Carolina law without a Social Security number. Montes was deported to Mexico, and the boys were placed in state custody after social workers determined that his wife, Marie Montes, was unable to care for them on her own.
