After Peter fails to find any good jobs, Lois turns to her father Carter for assistance. Carter agrees to employ Peter as a servant on his estate, and the Griffins move into a settlement of other illegal Mexican immigrants near Carter's mansion. Of course, working as a servant, especially under Carter, proves grueling for Peter, who begins to empathize with the illegal immigrants. He forms a friendship with them, and they in turn invite him and his family to a party to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. However, Carter crashes the party by reminding him of American regulations. Peter is outraged and rallies up the illegal immigrants to form a rebellion. Carter decides to negotiate with Peter, saying he will grant him American citizenship if he calls off the rebellion. Peter demands that everyone must gain citizenship, but the others insist that he take this opportunity, saying that their day will come someday. Peter agrees, and from this point onward Peter becomes an official American citizen; the family moves back to their house, Peter regains his job, and all is well.
"Con respecto a los inmigrantes, es necesaria una actitud hospitalaria y acogedora, que los aliente a integrarse en la vida eclesial, salvaguardando siempre su libertad y su peculiar identidad cultural. A este fin es muy importante la colaboración entre las diócesis de las que proceden y aquellas en las que son acogidos, también mediante las específicas estructuras pastorales previstas en la legislación y en la praxis de la Iglesia. Se puede asegurar así la atención pastoral más adecuada posible e integral. La Iglesia en América debe estar impulsada por la constante solicitud de que no falte una eficaz evangelización a los que han llegado recientemente y no conocen todavía a Cristo" (EA,65).
The part of the telenovela dealing with Islamic customs and attitudes mixes traditions from diverse countries, rather than those of Morocco alone, and has been criticised for its inaccurate representation of these traditions, according to Barbosa. These criticisms include the portrayal of polygamy as commonly accepted in Morocco, women as rarely working outside the home or pursuing an advanced education, and women having only unimportant roles within the family. Critics making these judgments included sheik Abdelmalek Cherkaoui Ghazouani, the Moroccan ambassador to Brazil, who considered the high profile of these representations to merit his posting his criticisms directly on his embassy's website as part of a bulletin board .
