She was in Mexico trying to do the right thing and correct her legal status.

An exception should be made in this case and she should be allowed to return to the US (and her adoptive family) and proceed with becoming a citizen.

Let's be reasonable here. These are extraordinary circumstances and this girl should not be lumped into the same category as the rest of the illegals here.

The problem is that this is a matter of international law which the U.S.(along with other countries) has ratified. The intent of the law is to combat abduction and child trafficking across national borders.

If the U.S. thumbs its nose at the law, why would other countries feel they need to be bound by it? Violating international law in order to allow an illegal alien to enter our country is a horrible precedent to set. We must look at the bigger picture here.

Unless and until the Mexican government gives the green light for her to be adopted and legally taken out of their country, she will have to stay in Mexico.

I agree. You always hear from the radicals around here that they want these people to do it the legal way and when the immigrants does it the legal way, they run into snafus that make me understand why illegals simply say "Fck It" and come here illegally.
The hang up in this case is not with our government, but rather with the Mexican government and international law.

My question is how could she have been legally adopted if there was no BC? It appears that the adoption was illegal.

things like that do not matter to those who think we owe illegal aliens.

as for the teen getting a free ride,it also looks as if some think all teens are angels worthy of free things,i say look at the teen hitman,and think is there anyway to prove all these free riders are not part of things like this and are all willing to have their own kids around all these dreamers.

If you'll read the story you'll find that she was not legally adopted. The necessary legal papers were not filed prior to the ratification of the international law that requires the home nation's approval.

That's what they're waiting on now, for Mexico to approve the adoption and the girl's removal from their country.

Which translates there was never an adoption...so why don't they just state that and go on with the story. Why do journalists always have to stretch the truth?

Because true journalism no longer exists. We only have op-ed pieces designed to sway public opinion.

In this case, though the story is designed to elicit sympathy for the girl, it is ultimately aimed at garnering support for Obama's executive order.

What's sad is that the facts of this case are being twisted all to h3ll by the media, for an agenda that really does not fit what this case is about.

This girl was adopted illegally and the real heart of the matter is that unless MX gives the green light, she's in limbo. Hardly a case of US immigration law making life difficult.

I feel bad for her, but the law is the law and it's MX's move.
