TIJUANA – Elisa Morales Guzmán was a typical American teenager. She attended high school, hung out with her friends and dreamed of becoming a famous actress.

But one afternoon last May, while at her best friend's house, Elisa received a call from her mother, who told the teen that she had just been deported.

The news shattered the 15-year-old's world.

Esther Morales Guzmán, 48, who had lived in the United States without legal documents for 18 years, was arrested by immigration authorities near her home in the San Francisco Bay Area. The next day, at 4 a.m., she was dropped off in Tijuana, along with 50 others.

In an instant, Elisa became one of the thousands of children caught up in the nationwide crackdown on illegal immigrants.

Elisa will emerge from that anonymity this week at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, where she has been invited to speak at a forum about her family's experience.

Sen. Barack Obama and key party leaders have been invited to the forum, being presented by Hermandad Mexicana, an organization that advocates for the human rights of immigrants.

The Los Angeles-based group chose Elisa as its spokeswoman on the plight of U.S.-born children separated from their parents who are deported.

“I want to say that (the U.S. authorities) are driving families apart, little by little. I want people to hear me, to hear us.”
SignOnSanDiego.com > News > Mexico > Tijuana & The Border -- U.S. teen whose mom was deported to tell story at convention

Just when you think you've heard it all, here's yet another deranged child whose poor excuse for a mother has been here illegally for 18 years but she's blaming law enforcement for her "mother's" 18 years' worth of crime.

Dear God, we have suffered enough, please get these criminals and their delusional offspring out our country. AMEN.
Should have caught and deported her 16 years ago.. before the anchor baby!

This reminds me of the Susan Lefevre story. She thinks that by hiding and trying to fit in for a long amount of time the crime gets swept under? NO

I wonder also why would someone lose THEIR JOB to an Illegal, unless they do a better job, or if it is because because they are cheaper.
If it is because of a paycheck, they should sue for discrimination.
i can think of two friends right off hand that, because of declining wages and disappearing benefits were flat forced out of their professions because of illegal compitition. these were hard working tradesmen that gave DECADES of their life to their trades.

how about you hypocriticalone, how many illegals are competing for your job? that's what i thought
