Carmen thinks she sees I.C.E. in a van outside and gets scared that
Start: Carmen: (scared). ¡Dios mio!
(CARMEN quickly takes a drink of her coffee and can hardly breathe afterwards.)
Estela: ¿Qué? ¿Amá, qué pasa?
Carmen: I saw a van!
Rosali: What van?
Carmen: ¡La migra!
(All the WOMEN scatter and hide waiting to be discovered. Then after a few seconds PANCHA makes a realization.)
Pancha: Pero, why are we hiding? We’re all legal now.
[.. … ..]
Rosali: Estela, we can do it.
(ESTELA looks to PANCHA. PANCHA remains quiet. CARMEN breaks their stare.)
Carmen: Wouldn’t it be funny if the migra came and instead of taking the employees like they usually do, they take the patrona.
(The WOMEN laugh at the thought.)
Estela: Don’t laugh! It could happen.
(The WOMEN become silent.)
Carmen: Ayy, Estela, I’m just kidding. I’m just trying to make you feel better.
