Another victim story

This illegal alien story is a real tear jerker. Victor and Maria Roa snuck into the US from Mexico in 1990. They applied for asylum, thinking they would be able to stay here. (Of course, that defense doesn’t work when your country of origin is Mexico. Duh!)

So, after appeals and more appeals, they were ordered to leave voluntarily in November of 2004. (We are so merciful, aren’t we? We put them on the honor system to go home. They call them “run letters” for some reason.)

Well, they didn’t leave, so they received a deportation order in May of 2007. They had until June 26th to surrender.

Now, here’s the sad part. In May of 2005, six months after they were ordered to leave the country, they conceived a child. Hazelle was born in February of 2006. Despite their total disregard for the law, and a standing deportation order, little Hazelle is an American Citizen.

Sadly Hazelle has birth defects that will require life-long care. Despite what Michael “Sicko” Moore tells us, the best care for the child isn’t in Cuba. The parents believe it is at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center, where the staff is familiar with the case and the bills are paid by the State of California.

Unfortunately, we don’t know what the Mexican government has to say about the case. My guess is that they would want the family to remain here.

The feds gave the family another month to stay here so they could figure out what to do. Their choices are:

Take the child back to Mexico with them.
Allow the child to stay with “legal” family members.
Allow the State to arrange a foster home for her.

What do you think they should do?
