Student Elizabeth Lee faces deportation

Jan 8, 2011 Full story: www.sfgate.com 21

It was the day before her 14th birthday in 2006 when Lee learned that she was living in the United States illegally. Her mother was arrested by immigration authorities while Lee and her brother, Felix, were at school. Lee was sent to live with a foster family for a week - she celebrated her birthday with strangers - before being reunited with her mother and brother.

The three of them fought to stay in the United States by filing a plea for asylum. But the asylum case was denied in 2008, and two years later, Melissa Lee was arrested a second time.

The Mother broke the law twice. First when she entered the country Illegally and after the request for Asylum was denied. But not to worry Mexico greats you with open arms. There are millions of cases like this out there.

If they are illegal they MUST be deported.
Then they can start the legal immigration process.

Why is their case even under consideration? They are here illegally, deport every single one of them without hesitation. Throw them in the ocean for all I care, just get rid of these parasites.

Can you believe this?!!! This is crazy!!! They are showing an illegal alien mother and daughter as the "good guys."

Here we are in America, as American citizens, who have children who are bright, have high expectations, work hard, and are on a college waiting list somewhere, or trying to put money away, including financial aid, in order to go to college, and they taunt this pos in their faces!

We as citizens, live in fear for our jobs, if we have them, looking for jobs that have long gone, if we lost them, and they parade this kind of crap before us!!!! Completely ignoring what we are going through to try to better ourselves, while paying taxes for this.

Not holding the mother accountable for this outcome is insane!If an American even considered doing half the crime that has been committed, they would be in jail. I think of the guy who was an American citizen,(last year - very little press coverage)who falsefied his transcript, etc., in order to get into Harvard. He succeeded, but when they found out, they had a state attorney general investigation about it! I remember thinking, yeah, it was wrong what this guy did, but illegal aliens do it all the time ,and YOU DO NOTHING ABOUT IT, YOU IGNORE IT!!!

We are taught, through brain washing and intimidation (tsa), that we must be watchful of each other, and that the boogie man terrorist is lurking around any corner or at least in a public place or on our computers, yet, our borders are porous. Even though we can find sudam Hussein in a hole in Iraq, we can't seem to put it together to fully secure our southern border. Some ask, what is secure? Well, I am been to places like Egypt, and, trust me, unless they allow it (Palestenians), you ain't getting in (alive)!

America's reality has turned upside down. The top doesn't hear us. They don't know that articles like this one are now considered facist propaganda, and are quite transparant. Yeah, we have several pictures of the mother crying on the church steps, but no mention of why the arrests of the mother (several), and why she wasn't deported.

Also, how is the daughter's tuition at Lowell being paid? I once lived in SF, and I know this is the top school in the city. And, YES, unless things have changed drastically, there is a waiting list to get in!!! And, I am sure that you know that UC Berkeley has a waiting list as well.

Wake up, America! They are not only doing it right in front of you, they are SMEARING it in your face!!!

That they are here illegally should be enough to get a quick deportation.

All these delays is ridiculous.

Green card = LEGAL (good)
No visa or green card = ILLEGAL (bad)
That simple enough for you?
This family had no authorization (green card/visa)to be in the US, end of story.

So you advocate breaking the laws of AMERICA because your father left your mother for a big boobed brain dead stripper. If you think there was any such thing as a real AMERICAN then the brittish education system is a farce. The "native ' americans were actually descendants from immigrants who came to what is now called AMERICA by way of what is now known as the Bering Straits.If your father left your mother for a stripper I would say your mother had lousy taste in men...her fault...NOT OURS

The real tragedy of this story is the person that suffers the most is the LEGAL IMMIGRANT who is waiting their turn to come to AMERICA. Every minute a immigration judge wastes in hearing a deportation case is a minute that can be used to move a case along for someone who has filled out every form, paid every fee and has WAITED FOR THEIR TURN TO BE ADMITTED TO AMERICA. There should be no such thing as a deportation hearing for someone who is here ILLEGALLY!!!! Anyone caught here ILLEGALLY should be deported IMMEDIATLY. Anyone here legally but who breaks our laws should have a deportation hearing scheduled within 30 days and remain in custody until the hearing can occur. We admit nearly 2 million LEGAL IMMIGRANTS a year but have a backlog of those wanting to come here LEGALLY. Lets reduce that backlog and accelerate the deportation of those here ILLEGALLY.
