A few days ago, the New York Times printed a portrait about one of the victims of the recent bus crash in the Bronx. The story focuses on Wang Jianhua, an immigrant from Fujian Province. Wang paid $75,000 to be smuggled into the United States in 2008. He worked as a bicycle deliveryman for Iron Sushi in New York and sent money back to his wife and two children in China.
“The family just collapsed overnight,” Ms. Wang said. “My head may explode at any minute.” She said her mother fainted several times a day from crying so much. The family has not yet begun to think about how they will assume the burden of Mr. Wang’s debt.
