"Padre de Familia" is the sixth episode of the sixth season of the American animated sitcom Family Guy. It first aired on November 18, 2007. The episode follows Peter Griffin as he becomes frustrated with the presence of illegal immigrants and convinces his supervisor to initiate an inspection, laying off any immigrants employed, unknowing that he was born in Mexico and that his mother never filled out his citizenship papers.
