Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

Sounds like that baby is her US security blanket!

Send 'em both back, make them swim!

She should have thought about this before she came here illegally. It isnt harsh nor unusually cruel to abide by the rules. A lot of US Citizens have to do it. What makes the illegals any different?

Isn't this what "No Child Left Behind" should truly mean?

""A Brazilian woman who was jailed for an immigration violation isn't being allowed to give her 2-month-old son breast milk.""""F erriera was initially arrested on a shoplifting charge, though Oliveira says Ferriera didn't know that her brother hid a CD or DVD in her baby stroller...""

Using the baby to steal!! I am sure there are nursing mothers who would help this baby. Leave the thieving illegal in jail. Get your bags packed darlin, you are going home!! The baby gets to stay in the USA and come visit you after a good education and he/she can pay their way to Brazil!! What more could you ask for?

""..Those taking care of the infant say he's crying incessantly and keeps spitting up baby formula...""

Colic or just an excuse hoping for some leverage?

The ACT musty really be hard up for stories to fill the space. There must be more important news than this.
ACT get your act together and find more important local stuff to report on

If a woman was arrested for stealing in Brazil, Im sure she would be incarcerated in far worse conditions. She should be thankful that she is being fed and in a clean jail cell.

No doubt, everything they are positing is news that happened elsewhere.

The baby will learn to drink from the bottle.

She should have thought about the consequences!

This is good news. For a change.
locally, there are not too many illegals that we know of being deported. Wish they (AC-T) would have a section on 'Deportees" and headlines like: "ICE nabs 300 plus in Sting', "Company bankrupt over legal fees for emmploying illegal aliens' and last but not least, Landlord loses 40 acres of trailors and huts for harboring illegals''Property to be auctioned off'. NOW, that would be news.

You guys are way to hard on her. She is just trying to get her baby use to the life here. Sucking on the Government tit for the rest of its life. We have been breast feeding all those people for years.

I am ashamed at how heartless and cruel all of you assholes are. So much ignorance. It is the baby you should be caring about. There is absolutely no reason that the baby should not be allowed breat milk from it's mother. The baby is innocent and none of you seem to give a shit about the trauma the baby is going through.

By the way, the only reason all of you are livign so well off in America is becasue this country was founded upon stealing the very land you stand upon and most of the resources you use were produced from stolen lands and slaves too. This is still going on to this day.

Educate yourselves and opwn your hearts. You disgust me.

Standing ovation! Well said, Grace. The sentiments expressed by so many posters on this forum are truly disheartening.

Well hell. You disgust me. Your grammar is awful, first of all. Second of all, I think it should become law that if you sympathize with the illegals, you should be made to go with them as they depart.

You have no idea just how heartless some of us can be. I would pay for your ticket to go away with the illegal one. Want to take me up on that one?

I have never stolen land in my life. Quit living in the past.

It is way past time that this country starts getting those who have snuck in here like roaches out.

You want to come to this country, do it the legal way. Not the easy way.

This baby will adapt. Im not falling for the "heartless" cries of the sympathizers. And in reality, this child should be deported with it's mother. I have no sympathy for anchor babies, either. Hows that for heartless?

Stolen land, stolen resources, stolen CDs, stolen DVDs, stolen immigration; I detect a pattern.

Where is slavery or land stealing going on to this day in this country? Please clarify your statement.

And so we should just stand back and LET illegals take over? Not without a fight young lady. You would do good to listen to your elders on this one. I do believe the majority of the folks here are well educated in history and history is repeating itself right now. If you stand back and allow these illegals to take over, then you disgust me.

DUH
The baby knows nothing of trauma because it gets no breast. The baby can definately feel the lack of prescence of its mother, but no trauma because of lack of breast. The baby is hungry and will eat from a bottle without trauma.
Whoaa...you can layoff the land theif crap with me lady...my folks are from Ireland and Hungry and I have no history or heritage tied to the jackasses who stole the land from the indians.
Furhtermore, as much as I love, respect, and admire my native american indian brothers, if they had stopped fighting with each other and banned together to fight the white man, none of us white folk would be here today.....not my fault....just like its not my fault this illegal woman is in the predicament she is in and I have NO sympathy....get over it.

AMEN DUNNIN!! AMEN. See, I was all for letting the baby stay, but you are correct---the baby needs to go with it's mother, that way we don't seem so heartless. LOL.....

I thought there was no life on Mars. Are you from Mars? Believe me the baby will be well taken care off. I have not heard of any case that if a baby does not get breast fed it'll die. Our tax money is already at work here.
I bought my land as far as I know, I built my big house with money I earned, I think the materials I bought for my house where legally obtained, my Condo was built on land the developer bought with legal materials with no slaves involved, my car is a legal import from Japan, built by well paid auto workers. My Agave Jeans where made in California, not in a sweat shop etc etc. Maybe where you are from it is different.
I do not agree with you

Yeah, heartless about describes it. Along with disgusting.

By the way, it appears from the news reports that the baby is having trouble tolerating the formula. If this baby dies of malnutrition, may its death stay on your conscience for a long, long time.
