When I worked in long term care facilities there was a legend going around about a nursing assistant who bragged about marrying one of the men she provided care for. When he died, she made out like a fat cat, real estate in California is quite a hefty investment. She garnered quite an illustrious reputation in her community for her skills at working the American dream.

Does it make sense to release over 500,000 “convicted” illegal alien criminals? That is precisely what happened. Moreover, how many illegal miscreants are roaming our streets that have not been caught? Should we wait until they rape, maim, or kill to consider them a threat? All apprehended illegals, regardless of arrest/conviction records, should be summarily deported.

I work with alot of elderly people in my job, and many of them are lonely, men, whose wives have died, and their families live far away. The men usually get a care taker, sometimes from an agency...usually a woman who does not speak much English...and these elderly men depend on these women to help them with their activities of daily living, bathing, cooking, dressing, shopping, and become quite attached to these women...which is fine...the issue is...I have seen this happen several times now, is that they get married, and the MINUTE the woman gets her papers that she is legal, she cleans out the account, and leaves.
Are we suspose to sympathize with these older men who knowingly marry a yonger woman they hardly know who is obviously not legal because they are either horney or to lazy to care for themselves or to cheap to hire help and then get ripped off. Its no different then men that marry mail order brides half their age and end up getting taken to the cleaners.

What immigration status did she have before marrying him? It also sounds like she stuck by him until death. How would have estate been willed had she not been married to him?

Thank you! While these scams are indeed disgusting, they have existed for many, many years. Actually, the referenced men, albeit vulnerable, are considered to be adults of sound mind, so nothing can be done to prevent them from being exploited. They should consider assisted living facilities. If they can afford the services of these “caregivers,” they can certainly afford to live in a facility where they can receive “no-strings” assistance.

If they are lonely and simply “shopping” for companionship, they should be more discriminating. Moreover, marriage scams are not restricted to lonely, elderly men. It happens daily to stupid men of all ages.

No offense men, but rarely do you hear of women falling for such nonsense. Likewise, it is rare for women to pay for sex. Yes, these women are scum. However, the men should think with their brain, rather than their penis.

I have now heard this same story, several times...what on earth is the ETHICS of these women?!

We need to stop the women who come here, and prey on lonely, elderly men...yes, these men do need to be protected from this type of emotional abuse.

One guy I spoke with today, his wife called the police on him, for domestic violence, and now, he has been researching this...after she left him...and found out that if he had been charged, she could have stayed here legally earlier...

And these men feel so hurt, and used, that they don't report this at all, to anyone...and just sort of discuss it, with a sigh...and think that maybe she will come back one day...

This is a crime, and not even reported...or even investigated in any newspapers that I have seen on this issue. And it is happening every day here ...
We had an elderly client/developer (80) not in great health, who fell for this scam. He married his 30 year old El Salvadorian maid and I could not wait to stick around to see the end of that story. Sad is right.

Was she in the country legally or did Immigration approve a marriage between an 80 year old man and the 30 year old illegal alien he illegally hired?

Nothing new here.
Except illegal aliens have no right to be here in the first place. They have already commited a crime by sneaking into the country.

Yup, lets give obama all the credit he deserves......
Let's give credit where credit is due...most of this, and the worst of it, occurred on Bush's watch.

They're BOTH guilty.

True - but still - why do our immigration laws favor these scummy con artists and block the better quality would-be immigrants.
