On Tuesday morning, I got up early, got my 1-year-old son Christopher ready and left with my husband, Juan Vivares, for what we hoped would be a routine check-in with an Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer in Manhattan.

The check-in had been scheduled because Juan was denied his application for political asylum from his native Colombia late last year and I am in the process of petitioning for him to stay in the country because my son and I are both U.S. citizens.

Bronx wife and mother: Please do not deport my husband - NY Daily News
Such a touching story and a shame that a family will be separated.

Very touchy story!


There are so many and they all know that you have to go the legal route. They should have been responsible and not put a child in the world before his case was decided.

Smart people act responsible and don't start later to say that other have to feel
Sorry because thI y act without reasonable thinking.

Btw just as a disclaimer. My family was deported in 1915 when they arriv d in Ellis Island and we just found out that the US thought they would become a liability to the government due to the lack of money they had upping entering with 7 people.

They went back to Europe and my grandfather died in Auswitz years later and so did others who were send back.

Hes a selfish dude...he should have settled his status before getting involved and starting a family. Cannot allow them to stay because they have anchor babies. It will just encourage them to multiply like crazy on the tax payers dime. Medicaid is out of control. Again she can join him in Columbia they have many doors she can open there.

Amen. We would not prevent them from doing so, and if she values keeping the family together, she should do that.

So basically the guy is A a form of criminal and B really stupid? Political asylum from what?


When we married last year, Juan felt confident he would win his political asylum claim, so we didn’t pursue a visa based on family status as we waited for a decision in the case. We were devastated when we found out in December that his final appeal for asylum had been denied. I immediately filed a petition for him to stay in the U.S. as a close relative of two citizens.

People like most of us who feel that people should think before they act and don't start a family and feel entitled that everyone else should agree to their decisions, are usually blamed for the illegal aliens situation.

The man will have to leave the country and apply for a visa based on marriage from his home country and if he goes the legal route he might be able to come in a few years.

Now his wife should stick to "for better and worse" and leave with him and come back as a family in the future.

If she doesn't then it was just a way to get a path to stay here and not a marriage based on love and the baby is not a love baby but just as the label says, an "anchor baby"!

Think of the number of families these young guys ditched coming up here and deciding to stay and start a new one. No one talks about that, "ripping apart families".

What kind of women would have a child with an illegal immigrant? Send her back with him. And the kid too.
