Mexico native Victor Arriaga has lived in this country more than a decade. He and his Guatemalan wife, Elida, are undocumented.

A week ago, Victor Arriaga said a translator for child welfare case manager Pam Stevens called the Bonita Springs couple to Naples for a Thursday visit with their grandsons, 2 and 1, who are in foster care.
Stevens works for Family Preservation Services, a provider through the Children's Network of Southwest Florida, contracted by the Department of Children and Families to run foster care.

The Arriagas' friend Veronica Rodriguez, 32, drove them to the visit, where she said Stevens questioned her about the pair's legal status and why she was driving. Soon after, Rodriguez and Victor Arriaga said Collier sheriff's officials arrived to detain the pair on immigration matters.

****************

Still, Victor Arriaga, a 39-year-old construction worker, believes his grandchildren were used as pawns. Authorities released him Thursday, he said, to care for his 12- and 15-year-old children, who were born in this country.He heard his wife was sent to a federal detention facility and may be deported in days.
"My wife and I have never had any problems before," Victor Arriaga said. "We're not criminals."

Hello? What part of illegal does he not understand? Until these clueless people of no moral character or sense of personal responsibility join those of us who live in the real world, their homelands will forever be filled with the perpetual generational curse of "adults" with the collective IQ's of a 3 y/o.

If an American is found to be illegally in Mexico, the same thing happens, the American is deported.

Agreed. The fact that he wasn't deported is infuriating. If American childrens' parents are jailed those kids are forced to suffer and on many occasions DCFS steps in to take custody.

These illegal aliens aren't even the parents of the anchors they were visiting, merely the grandparents. I wonder where the breeder and sperm donor of those children are? Why didn't they try to locate them and hold them responsible for the care of their anchors?

It forces them to realize that they create their own problems and separate their own families.

Just because a person has gotten away with a crime for over a decade does not mean that they are not criminals, or what they are doing is not wrong.

It just means that they got lucky for ten years.

I feel badly for any and all children in foster care, but really - that was due to the negligence/abuse of their parents. Who should be deported as well.

To the point! You break the law to take advantage of the American People, then don't cry for our pity when you get busted for your CHOSEN illegal entry into our nation.
