I lived in SoCal for 36 years and watched it change.

It was terrible to watch it right before one's eyes. It is also terrible watching our country going the same route.

My guess is that either she was deported before, and returned illegally, or she was ordered to leave the country by an immigration judge, but ignored the order. I think that's probably why she got the ten year ban. I've never heard of anyone who was caught for the first time, was deported, and was banned for ten years.

They aren't. There is some other crime involved.

The ten year ban is the same thing they do in Mexico if you're found to be there illegally. That's plenty fair.

What I don't understand and makes it seem there is a lot more to the story is, that she was married to an American. She has full rights to be here, no matter what. What was the cause to disregard that marriage, for deportation? It had to be something pretty bad.

Excellent! She deserved it! Now hopefully they'll start handing these sentences on the millions of others illegals. Especially the ones who are seemingly incapable of keeping their legs together and not reproducing.

Marrying an American does not automatically confer legal status.

You still have to apply and the consequences for you are usually the same as they are for any other illegal.

Marrying an American offers no protection from deportation if you have lived here illegally for many years. Try reading the sob stories all over the internet about this.

I am glad that marrying an American doesn't automatically give you legal status, now we just need to work on the being born in America (having only been here 2 hours) gives you legal status.

Hmmmmm?

I was always taught differently, from a military background(my dad)
He would talk about the women from Vietnam, marrying service men and how it was their ticket to freedom, never to have to go back.
