A mother of three US citizens and the wife of a US Marine Corps veteran, Ms. Sanchez Paulsen was barred from the United States for 10 years starting in 2006, when she and her husband were processing her visa paperwork. A decade is the typical punishment for entering the country illegally, which the Mexico native had done more than five years earlier. Her marriage to a US citizen couldn’t overcome the stain of her illegal entry, which is a decision that has haunted her – and torn her family in two – for most of her young children’s lives.

When families are divided by the US-Mexico border, deportation - CSMonitor.com

Ms Paulsen: YOU broke the law so, just take your punishment like a grown up. Sheesh!

This veteran is also an idiot for marrying her, knowing she was illegal. Many families are divided because of this. It is very sad, but people should not think that marriage will solve their problem if they are illegal.

Is this suppose to be a bleeding heart liberal post? If she wanted to stay with her family, they could have all moved to Mexico. Problem solved.
Her situation must be one in about a million considering how many illegals are here, never punished, have free access to nearly everything including education, welfare, drivers licenses, healthcare. I'm wondering if this story is even true, where did she go wrong?

“That’s been very painful for us – that the same moms and dads out there are judging us and aren’t thinking about what we are feeling,” she says. “I say, ‘If you were me, what would you do in my situation?’ And they sit and think, and pretty quickly they say ‘everything,’ ” she says.

So, they'll do anything to get here, but once here, they start screaming about how much they love Mexico! And, you better not try to take their culture away from them. They'll start screaming about their rights in America, in which they have more than we do.

Illegals look to marry any American to gain legal status.

Jeb Bush married an illegal border crosser.

Illegal means illegal. Personally I think if you marry an illegal you should lose your citizenship. There is actually federal law that may interest some:

Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):

A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he:

* assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or

* encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or

* knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime. Anyone employing or contracting with an illegal alien without verifying his or her work authorization status is guilty of a misdemeanor. Aliens and employers violating immigration laws are subject to arrest, detention, and seizure of their vehicles or property. In addition, individuals or entities who engage in racketeering enterprises that commit (or conspire to commit) immigration-related felonies are subject to private civil suits for treble damages and injunctive relief.
