Lodi resident Patricia Bou has spent the past week preparing to leave two of her children in the U.S. and move with her two youngest children to Cambodia.

The 22-year-old does not speak the Khmer language. She has no idea what it will be like in the Asian country. She doesn't know how she will earn money, but she is hoping to earn $1 to $3 a day doing basic work at a hotel and grow her own food.

    How could she think that they would be able to make a life and support to young children living in Cambodia makingPattig $1.00-$3.00 a day.

    Patty.. 1 dollar feeds 3 people a meal in Cambodia... I think it is is easier to live there than is thought. Personally, I would go if I were her as long as she had a prearranged place to stay with her husband.

    I think the husband had plenty of time to have though about getting a citizenship. Apparently he knew that this could happen some day. As for the wife I would let him go back to Cambodia and she should stay here with the children. How could she think that they would be able to make a life and support to young children living in Cambodia making $1.00-$3.00 a day. She should stay in the U.S. and Yes that is the best Option she should choose. She needs to think of the two young children and what kind of life they would have in Cambodia. She will realize later that it was a mistake to go and take the children there and will want to return to the U.S. How will she think she will get back to the U.S.

    I think this family might be exposed to opportunity that now does not appear obvious... when I went to Cambodia, it was not cultural shock, but an appreciative cultural awareness. Yes things are different and good money is harder to earn. However, there are things more important than money.

    Breaking the law for years does not give you the right to be exonerated because the system has finally caught up to you. It was incumbent on Mr. Bou to know what he needed to do to stay in the United States LEGALLY. Unfortunately his family will have to deal with his neglect of the law.
