I was thinking the same thing. I'm sure it will haunt her for the rest of her life.

It most definitely will. She's probably having vivid nightmares and other forms of sleep deprivation. How sad.

This woman is a victim. Her husband may he burn in hell has taken everything the matters. She passed the screening to enter. We should find a way to not deport her.

But.....and I hate to bring this up, but she is a stripper. Do we need more strippers in the US? I guess what I am saying, is that this qustion would be clear cut if she were a nurse, a teacher, an engineer or a baker. Stripper? Rightly or wrongly there is a stigma attached to that profession that includes prostitution and drug abuse.
Then again, maybe she was stripping per dhs orders? I don't know...just something that needs to be looked into.

No reason to hate bringing up the truth. While I sympathize with her plight, she is no angel by any stretch of the imagination. The fact that she was living here illegally for more than a decade, and waiting for her citizenship through marriage did not escape me. Also, I could not overlook the fact that despite being married she was caught in a hotel room with another man. More than a few of the issues in this story raises the red flag for me as well.

ITA with all that you have stated.

Admittedly, I had the same thought. While I definitely feel compassion for her tremendous loss, and I try not to be judgmental; her 'occupation' leaves much to be desired.

Is anyone surprised that something negative had to be brought up into this god forsaken thread? Stripper or not, she's making a living. That has no bearing on her ability to be a good person. God you people will just search & stretch for anything ****ty to say, won't you? It's just never enough, it's got to be a constant negative sea of drivel. I feel sorry for you guys, there is never any light shining on your day, must suck to live in constant darkness & paranoia.

Yes, I have posted the same way, can you imagine someone going on for days being negative? There is something good to find every day.
If they cannot find a positve thing, they can reflect that they are upright and not taking a dirt nap.

I'm just amazed that this story can be turned around & made into something seedy.

I agree.

She was going through the proper channels to be here, she should be allowed to remain.

My heart goes out to that poor woman. To lose a child to an accident would be tragic. To have your child murdered by its own father and to know that you could have prevented it would be hell on Earth for the rest of your life.
