From the wife:

“But when you’re a good citizen and you support and you help and you pay taxes and you give jobs to people, you should be able to stay.”

Helen, while I don't rejoice for joy that your husband is being deported, he is not a citizen and shouldn't be given any special privileges.

That said, I will say that I'd be more in favor of letting cases like this one "go" in that I'd consider legal status. But not because of the children (no, parents are removed from their children all the time because they broke the law), but because of the fact that the man is a businessman who has created jobs (sort of like citizenship/legal status by investment). That said, such is not the state of our law today and the man doesn't have a strong argument in that regard. Thus, there is only one thing left to do under the law.

How do you explain this to children,” he said, noting that the couple’s kids are 15, 14 and 8.



You tell us moron, you are/were reckless and could give two @#$s about the people that already lived here. This is on you pal. You tell your kids how you cheated the system up till now.

He is a good example of what a citizen should be.

Citizens should not be breaking laws. I hope US citizens don't start break other countries laws like this.

How can he be a "model citizen" when he broke the law? Sorry, you created a life here illegally and need to go home now.

This is coming from a legal Hispanic American

Her story doesn't make sense anyway.

She said they applied for a green card 10 years ago? Baloney, a green card for the spouse of a US citizen doesn't take ten years to process.

He snuck in in 1998 and they married in 2000? He should have adjusted his status WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back then. In pre-9/11 days, it was easier to adjust as an EWI (fence-jumper) and pretty straightforward to do so as an overstay. Even now, it's possible to do...but it takes time and almost always involves spending a few years outside of the country unless you can get a hardship waiver.

Doesn't sound like they ever tried to do anything right...ever...because they just assumed they'd be able to blab their sob story to anyone who'd listen and the illegal wouldn't be deported.

Then the wife goes and votes for Donald Trump.

You can't make this crap up.
