Stolen Babies? Mother Loses Four Kids - ABC News

The scars of childbirth were still healing on Amelia Reyes Jimenez's stomach in 2008 when police came to her Phoenix apartment and took her three-month-old daughter from her arms.

Three and a half years later, Reyes Jimenez and her four children have become statistics in the U.S. crackdown on illegal immigration. Each year thousands of children of undocumented immigrants, like Amelia's kids, wind up in foster care when their parents are arrested for immigration violations. Some are even adopted by U.S. citizens while their parents are held in federal detention centers or deported back to their native countries.

What kind of "mother" would knowingly put her children in that situation?

An Illegal Alien mother that's who.

Eventually bad things happen to those who don't follow and respect the laws. If she stayed where she belonged she wouldn't be in this situation.

For every Illegal alien sob story like this there is an equal one from an American family victimized by Illegal aliens.

Simple solution, stay the hell in your own country and you wouldn't be dealing with this.

Actually one child has appears to have vanished .... the 13 year old disabled son Caesar. I wonder how the police found out he was alone in the apartment?

I really feel terrible for the children, for it is not their fault in any way. It is terrible, but is this a lesson learned or to be learned, to those who break laws willingly.

It is awful, but maybe this is a consequence that should be taught to all of those who so willingly and knowingly break the laws by coming here illegally. Is this fair to the children! these Mothers, need to ask themselves that very question. The children are innocent in this, and i do blame the parents.

Once again another story that involves a disabled child.

Obviously someone reported them for child neglect - leaving the disabled child home alone. Americans who get reported for child neglect have child services breathing down their neck for months after the report is made if the child(ren) remain in the home. Children that are taken from the home end up with the same results, they get lost in the system.

All it takes is one child to anchor in the US. The income from one child isn't enought to feed 3 mouths, so continue to have children to up the welfare.

In cases such as this the parent(s) should be scheduled for immediate deportation and given the choice to either take their children back with them or surrender them to child services. More than likely surrender would be the first choice. At least it gives the children a chance for a better life if adopted. It appears that she chose to fight the case and had to know the consequences or possible outcome. She's working in Mexico so I guess there are jobs there, but not a government that would provide the "benefits" that the US does.

No mention of the father and where he is.

My heart goes out for the children who are the innocent victims and suffer because of the actions of their illegal parents.

What the writer of the article failed to mention is that parents facing deportation have the choice of taking their children with them, unless the children have been removed from their care for some reason, like abuse, neglect, etc.

ABC needs to edit that headline:

Stolen Anchor Babies? Illegal Immigrant Mother Loses Four Kids


The thing that upsets her the most is probably that her anchors couldn't keep her from deportation. Hopefully other would be crimmigrants will take notice....
