Elvira Arellano: How To Use Your Child As A Human Shield

Originally posted on CommonSense America:

I am so tired of seeing logic, and our laws, twisted and turned on their heads while those that wish to break our laws claim to be the victims. While Elvira Arellano uses her child, and her church, as a human shield against the crimes she willfully committed, the leftists and the media try to portray her as the poor victim of our immigration laws.

It is time for our nation, our media, and especially our elected officials, to get a personal-responsibility-reality-check.

Ms. Arellano knew the consequences of her actions. She willfully entered this country illegally. She willfully had a child knowing that her illegal status could cause her own deportation. She willfully used, and was convicted of using, a fraudulent Social Security Card to gain employment - a felony. She willfully re-entered this country after being deported in 1997. Re-entry after deportation is a felony punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison. Now she willfully thumbs her nose at our immigration laws portraying herself as a victim as she hides behind her child.

I guess I fail to see how this woman is the victim of anything but her own bad decisions.

So, what should be become of this poor victim, Elvira Arellano? I agree with Robert Klein Engler of ChronWatch, who clearly states:

You’d think that after being in this country illegally for 7 years and after giving birth to an anchor baby, Elvira Arellano would at least know English. Apparently not. Speaking through an interpreter, she said, “If Homeland Security chooses to send agents to a holy place, I would know that God wants me to serve as an example of the hatred and hypocrisy of the current administration.”

Illegal immigrants have turned around the lives of many Americans, altering our communities for the worse, wasting our tax dollars, and transforming our public schools. It’s time to turn out of office those politicians who refuse to deport illegal immigrants. It’s time also for you, Elvira Arellano, to go home to Mexico. And when you leave, shut the door behind you.
