OK-this 'woe-is-me' tale has more holes than a screen door;where is his 'wife'? CPS had to have some valid reasons for removing the children.I notice The Worlds' Best Daddy has been in the U.S. long enough to breed at least four times,yet no English speak.

The idiot was caught driving without a license and without insurance!!! This article leaves out that important fact but other articles i've read mention it.

You'd think when an illegal invades america, they'd stay away from cars and keep a low profile. But this moron didn't care about any of that.

Especially since Nobama, Holder and Napolitano were sworn in.

So why can't the mother (kids'mom) get a job? and we know she will get welfare for the kids. This way she keeps them without just suddenly find themselves without him or her? But again he sounds like he believes COMMITED NO WRONG! yet here illegaly, driving with no drivers license, or insurance and advocates back him up as a victim of BP and immigration injustice??????? WHO REALLY IS TO BLAME HERE? NOT OUR LAWS....thats for sure. To heck with the petition, his sobbing story doesn't bother me as he what he was doing was wrong when he entered illegally EXPECTING THAT HIS ANCHOR KIDS can get him out of the mess he PUT ALL OF THEM IN. And where is the wife, I suppose she claims she didn't know he was illegal when they married? he can thank himself for the mess everyone's in.

And he could've killed with his car and left the scene as many do, right? then the story would go different but still back him up making him the victim anyway. He did wrong and the only thing left was to deport him as he broke three laws and wants us to feel sorry for him, why should we treat him different because of the children? they can ask him why he did what he did, themselves.

Wait a minute, so the mother chose to leave her kids behind to be with this illegal??? The kids are probably better off without either of these parents. No pity party for these two...I do pity the kids who will suffer because of their parents' ignorance.

No. She apparently doesn't work and couldn't afford heat and whatever. I don't understand why they don't ALL go back to Mexico with the father. The courts here should have no jurisdiction over living conditions in another country, period. People move their kids from this country to another one all the time. No one has to approve those conditions.

Here's a better article on this situation, with more information:

http://colorlines.com/archives/2012/02/deport...

Quote:
Allegheny County has already convinced a judge to end family reunification efforts with Marie Montes. She wants the children to be placed with their father.“If they can’t be with me, I want them to be with him,” she said.“Nobody is a better father than he is.”

Montes’s case reveals how indiscriminate the deportation system has become. He was married to a United States citizen, and thus eligible for a visa. But he said the process of applying for documents was simply too expensive—thousands of dollars to complete visa applications and pay for travel costs to leave the country and apply, as the rules demand. What’s more, as the breadwinner in the family, he feared that leaving to Mexico while he applied for reentry would leave his family at risk.

Because Montes was undocumented, he couldn’t apply for a driver’s license and was forced to operate a car without one. Sometimes, he would be pulled over by local police who’d ticket him for driving without a license and registration, and over time the tickets piled up. Eventually, Montes was called into court. He was put on probation for the compounding violations and ordered not to drive. He tried to comply, he said, only getting behind the wheel when his family’s life simply demanded it.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has claimed that they allow parents facing deportation to make decisions about what happens to their children. In a recent statement, the agency said,“ICE works with individuals in removal proceedings to ensure they have ample opportunity to make important decisions regarding the care and custody of their children.”

But this has not always been true. Montes said he was removed “without being able to say anything to my wife. Without seeing my children even one more time…My wife was left completely alone and pregnant.”
End Quote

Awww...applying for a visa was too expensive. Well, WTF does he think all other people do that want to be here LEGALLY? Go home and deal with it. He could've, at that point, taken the kids with him since he wasn't deported and family services hadn't removed the children from his home. You snooze you lose.

However, people should not be allowed to come here illegally, marry a citizen and thus be eligible to get a visa. That is circumventing our laws. Plus, when one desires to marry a foreign national and bring him/her over, the citizen must sign off on an Affidavit of Support, which could require said citizen to support the immigrant for up to 10 years (and most definitely to support said immigrant up until the time he/she received work authorization). This lazy arse lady not only didn't work, but didn't cook or care for the kids. But she sure didn't have a problem opening her legs and going through several pregnancies. She can't be *that* sick.

He didn't qualify for a driver's license so he chose to drive illegally. More disregard for our laws. Obviously he didn't pay his tickets, either. Such a fine, upstanding person -- just the type we have enough of here already. We don't need more like him. That last sentence in that paragraph cracks me up: "He tried to comply, he said, only getting behind the wheel when his family’s life simply demanded it." Just how would his family's LIFE demand it? If someone is sick, there's 911 to call. Therefore, his family's life never demanded it, he just likes to exaggerate and drive without a license.

If both parents are being deported, I'm sure they give them a chance to make arrangements. I've read articles where they discuss it. In this instance the mother is a citizen, so of course they don't bother giving the father a chance to make arrangements, figuring the mother would take care of things...except she didn't and child custody had to get involved.

I say let him have his kids in Mexico.

If he hadn't been in such a hurry to have his wife (who allegedly has a debilitating disease to the extent she can't work, can't cook and can't take care of the kids, but can most certainly lay on her back, spread her legs and go through nine months of pregnancy (and many women find pregnancy to be difficult, especially if they are *that* sick) he could've saved the money to get a visa. No kids = more money in your pocket to do things the right way. Instead, he counted on circumventing the laws and being allowed to stay based on his anchors.

Oops! His further law breaking just caused that "plan" not to work out. Not just his driving without a license tickets are further law breaking, but his working without authorization and God only knows what else!

Typical criminal illegal alien who thinks laws don't matter. If they're willing to break one law, why not more?

Why aren't they going after his employer? They obviously know who he is. It was a felony for this dirt bag to employee this criminal POS.
