A San Rafael woman who was allegedly attacked and bitten by her husband, and reported it to local authorities, could face deportation after missing a court date to testify against him.

Ligia Catzim, 25, was jailed last week after she failed to show up for court and Judge Faye D'Opal ordered her arrest. Once Catzim was booked into the county jail, authorities added a no-bail federal immigration hold - meaning she can't be released from custody, regardless of what happens in the domestic violence case, until federal authorities investigate her citizenship status.

This could lead to Catzim's deportation, said Jason Nelson, her lawyer. He said Catzim has been victimized twice - first by her husband, then by the system that was supposed to protect her.

"Something went very wrong, obviously," Nelson said. "This is an egregious miscarriage of justice."


Meanwhile, Catzim's husband, Pablo Xitamul Ortiz, has been offered a misdemeanor plea bargain by the district attorney's office. He was originally charged with mayhem and domestic violence.

Ortiz, 30, is also being detained on a no-bail immigration hold and could be deported as well.

The incident occurred at 11:30 p.m. July 10 at the couple's apartment in the Canal neighborhood. Catzim locked herself in the bathroom and escaped out the window after Ortiz threw her on the ground, bit her on the face and pulled out her hair, said San Rafael police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher.

"He was angry because he came home and she wasn't there and she wouldn't tell him where she was," Rohrbacher said. "He was angry because he thought she should always tell him where she was going."
Ortiz was booked into the county jail. Catzim declined medical treatment, despite bite marks on her face.

The only people being victimized here are the American taxpayers.

Two brainless twits masquerading as adults are in the country illegally and the exhibition of their subzero IQ's by resolving their issues results in a bite fest. They have no rights and this nonsense does not rate clogging up our already over burdened legal system.

Not only should it be ordered that they pay court costs, legal fees and both be deported, the "attorney" should be deported with them an ordered to forfeit the license he received from that online course he took probably sponsored by Mexico.

You make a lot of assumptions especially on how the lawyer obtained his license. However, I do agree they should pay court costs. If they are found to be deported, US should take their posessions and auction them to recoup costs. Sort of like what they do with those big time criminals and drug lords. I often wonder what happens to property, bank accounts and belongings of those deported.

This is another glaring illustration of the idiotic squandering of our tax dollars. They are illegal aliens, and should simply be deported, and prevented from returning. Unfortunately, our porous borders serve as a revolving door; and we, the hard-working taxpayers, are left holding the bag, as usual. When I think of the needs of this country, and the billions of dollars being wasted on illegal aliens, I feel like screaming.

What should make you really scream are the billions upon billions spent on high tech wars and bonehead contracts in stead of securing the borders especially post 9/11. Wars obviously have a higher priority than immigration or border security.

Itís all infuriating! I have worked on federal contracts, and can personally attest to our profligate government.

ITA. In Mexico they would not have even filed a police report because they fear their own police. The fact that there are millions of these low IQ breeders giving birth in this country is representative of the future tragedy that will be known as America.

What? You apparently, don't recognize sarcasm when you see it. After reading the rest of your post, at least I don't have to wonder or assume anything about you.

Don't you know, that's the latest foreplay rave. If your man isnít biting you, he doesnít love you. They say it's replacing French kissing. They call it Lion Love.

All joking aside:

In the case of Catzim; she may have a case of staying here in the USA under political asylum whereas Lopez needs to be tossed out.
