An illegal immigrant who took refuge in a Chicago church for a year to avoid being separated from her U.S.-born son has been deported to Mexico, the church's pastor said.Damn right we need a change. I'm tired of saying it, but we need to get serious about the illegal immigration problem. One change that needs to be made is the law that automatically makes their babies US citizens. Just because they calve over here shouldn't automatically make the baby an American. Only babies of US citizens should be US citizens at birth.
Elvira Arellano became an activist and a national symbol for illegal immigrant parents as she defied her deportation order and spoke out from her religious sanctuary. She held a news conference last week to announce that she would finally leave the church to try to lobby U.S. lawmakers for change.
"We are sad, but at the same time we are angry," said Javier Rodriguez, a Chicago immigration activist who worked with Arellano. "How dare they arrest this woman?"How dare they arrest and deport somebody that has entered the country illegally? Give me a break. How dare these people. I'm sick and tired of hearing these people and their whining. I'm also sick of these people and the liberal left trying to paint me, and others that feel the same way, as Mexican hating racist. I am not a Mexican hating racist. I am intolerant of people that have no respect for our laws and our sovereignty.
I do hope her baby makes it to Mexico safely to be with it's mother, and I hope they both stay there.
One down, 20 MILLION to go.
