I read this earlier today and laughed my butt off.

It's her attempt at trying to garner some kind of solidarity with the "illegals". Meanwhile this woman was never what we consider a border jumping, take advantage of the system illegal. She wasn't even an IMMIGRANT because she had no desire to become an American.

No, what she did was leave when her visa expired (which is what she was legally required to do) and re enter. Big difference

Selma Hayek is one of the richest women in Hollywood after marrying her multi billionaire tycoon - the hubris of these people never ceases to amaze me.

Takes hellova lot of nerve. Seriously it does.

Perhaps she’ll star in a blockbuster illegal alien movie. After all, it has become chic to be illegal in this country.

It doesn't matter if it was briefly or not. After all, illegal is illegal right?

So it's okay to be "illegal" as long as you don't jump the border?

The Government should reexamine her citizenship application papers, and if found to be fraudulent under new light, rescind her citizenship and have her deported.

This could make for an excellent teaching opportunity by our elected representatives to illustrate how our immigration laws are, in the end, vindicated.

Nope! No matter how you got here or allowed your visa to expire and remained here it is all the same to me.

As she "self deported" before being caught, it's a moot issue isn't it? Aren't you the one that's always saying it's not a "crime", just a civiil violation?

Puhlease, we KNOW this "admission" is just for effect LOL - hell "a short while" could have been a day - who knows? (or cares)
