Barreiro said his client was going through a divorce with his wife - the mother of the step-children he is accused of molesting. The arrest came just weeks after he sought to kick her out of her house due to their marital problems, he said.

Cantu's wife is living here illegally and has been deported numerous times, making her ineligible to receive a visa, according to the attorney.

But Barreiro believes she convinced her children to fabricate the molestation allegations against their step-father to help the family qualify for special visas available to some crime victims.

Victims of abuse who help authorities investigate and prosecute crimes are eligible for U visas that allow them to remain in the country lawfully for up to four years, at which point they may apply for permanent residency.

I'm not sure who to believe, however, while this situation occurred in Edinburgh, this type of situation occurs frequently in many countries. Situations such as this is a prime example why America should limit legal immigration ONLY to those who have the potential to be an asset to this country. We have enough of our own burdens and we have been bamboozled for long enough.
