Deported Mexican migrant activist asks for refuge in the US
A brief history:
In 1997, Elvira Arellano snuck into our country illegally from Mexico. She was discovered and deported. Almost immediately, she came back again, and this time she dodged authorities for about three years, during which time she "dropped anchor" and had a kid out of wedlock. She's never revealed the identity of the father. She then went to Chicago and got a job cleaning at O'Hare International Airport, but in the wake of 9/11, a security check on the airport employees revealed that she was using someone else's social security number. She was arrested, charged and convicted for that crime and ordered deported again, but she instead hid in a church in Chicago known for sheltering illegals. From there, she launched media attack after media attack on the US Government and everyone who wanted her gone, claiming that the fact that she has a child gave her the right to stay in America forever. The Mexican government also used her case to attack our policy of deporting illegal Mexicans back to Mexico, all while deporting citizens from Central and South America in accordance with their own harsh (and effective) immigration laws. A year later, in 2007, she was finally arrested and sent back to her home country. She was given the opportunity to bring her son with her after years of wailing about how it would be inhumane to separate her from him, but when that argument didn't result in her being allowed to stay here, she just shrugged and left the kid behind, presumably for our welfare agencies to support. But now just a few year later, she apparently decided that he once again has value as a prop, and somehow she got the money to fly him down to Mexico just so that they could appear together at one of our border crossings where she's now demanding asylum, claiming that neither her or the kid should have to live in Mexico.
Now we taxpayers will wind up housing and feeding her again as she waits for yet another hearing, hoping that maybe this time, a judge will ignore her three previous deportation orders and just give her a
All I can say is that if the Obamaites let her stay this time after all of this, than the rule of law is truly and irrevocably dead in America.
