California Classmates of Mexican Boy Launch Campaign For His Return to U.S.

The classmates of a 9-year-old Mexican boy who, along with his family, was denied re-entry to the United States earlier this year have launched a campaign urging the U.S. government to let him come back.

The students of Rodrigo Guzman’s fourth grade class at Jefferson Elementary School in Berkeley, Calif. say that their friend belongs in the United States, not in a country that he left when he was younger than 2 years old.
