Last night's episode was funny and touching as always but in the last few minutes of the show, a very serious issue surfaced in the fictional Suarez' family- Betty's dad did not have a social security because as he relunctantly confessed to Betty, the father had been in the United States illegally.
I think that it was a very risky and bold move for the Show's writers and producers to address such a "political" issue especially in an election year. I think that considering the fact the President Bush , has just signed a bill for the construction of a "fence" to keep out illegal immigrants this storyline is more relevant than ever.
