Why would she leave her child here?? Why wouldn't she take him with her??
Also, can he apply for a green card for his Mom as a US citizen? Just curious. I realize that a conviction as an illegal immigrant may prevent her from being granted one... but couldn't somebody do something to make this all sort of go away?
I We're all immigrants... except for those of us who are of Native American ancestry. Legal, illegal... I don't think there was a formal process when my relatives came over back in the early 1700s.
I think there is a lot of racism regarding the whole immigration thing... which people don't acknowledge. I live in NYC. Our neighborhood is mainly Chinese, Russian, Ukranian, and Italian. We have Chinese-Americans who have relatives who have been in this country for at least a 100 years. Yet, people still look at them and their children as "immigrants." Yet the kids of the Russians and the Ukranians who have been here for less than 10 years are not treated as such. Why?? Because they are caucasian.
If this woman was not Latina... would this be happening?? Seriously. She got in trouble for having a fake social security number. So she was still paying social security taxes. She was working in an honest job. She has a son who is an American. There has to be a loophole people. Problem is... it's too much of a political hot button right now.
Sad. I hope she finds a way to stay. Or maybe gets welcomed into Canada or some other nicer country.
