The Widow Makers

January 2005 , approx 41,000 permanent resident aliens were in the United States armed forces - 3,639 Mexicans. The Mexicans arethe largest group among the 63 immigrants who have been killed in action in Iraq, say the Pentagon

Private Fonseca, who on Jan. 17 took a sniper's bullet in the stomach while patrolling in Ramadi, is only are accorded citizenship after death..

When they buried Private Fonseca on Feb. 2 in Mexico , an officer from the United States Army gingerly handed the flag that had covered his coffin to his teenage wife. Then a group of mariachis, including his father-in-law, belted out the classic "México Lindo y Querido" as they lowered the casket.

"Beloved and beautiful Mexico, if I die far from you, just say that I'm sleeping and bring me back to you," they sang.
