Default Remember the little girl who asked Michelle Obama a question about deportation?


YouTube - 2nd Grader to First Lady: My Mom Has No Papers

That's the video in case you never saw it. Here's a new article that talks about the little girl being "a symbol of US undocumeted."

Peruvian child becomes symbol of US undocumented - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100531/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/lt_peru_girl_immigration - broken link)

From the article:

Quote:
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has said it is not pursuing Daisy's parents. Immigration investigations, it said in a statement, "are based on making sure the law is followed and not on a question-and-answer discussion in a classroom."
Thi is the very reason why arizona passed SB1070. How in hell does the DHS get to decide where and when they will enforce the laws. Odds are Obama administration called and told them hands off and not to discuss it with the media.

What a joke.

Read that the girls parents went into hiding and are terrified. Understandable.

First of all, why is there a Mexican flag posted up in the back at the school? You don't walk into schools and see flags from Ghana, Zambia (for black people), England, Germany, Ireland or China. So, another example of the desire for people in this country to pledge allegiance to Mexico. Now to the article, it shows the attitude towards illegal immigration by our federal government.

So, if I killed someone or say something lesser, committed fraud on a government document, and my little girl or whoever revealed it, would the federal or local governments give me a pass? Would they not investigate me? Is the argument here that just because the little girl said it, the federal government won't act on this evidence that shows the Mom is here illegally? Also, what if they are committing identity theft and fraud? Do we not have the right to be upset about the DHS not going after known illegal immigrants when there is a chance that our identities could be stolen?

"I'm really proud that a young girl of Peruvian origin is highlighting the enormous problem with Latin American immigration in the United States," President Alan Garcia told reporters last week.

He said it would be scandalous if her parents were deported.
The United States can't save every single person from "Latin America." The nerve of them. Why don't they start trying to improve their own country? What is the enormous problem? And what does it have to do with the U.S.? The problem is that so many countries to the South fail horribly at providing a better life for its own people, so we are supposed to take millions of people when we have our own issues here? Do the leaders of these countries really think before they speak? We can add Peru to the list of countries that are trying to play the U.S.. "Scandalous?" Really? What's scandalous is what illegal immigrants do to be here illegally. Now that's scandalous. We really need to start taking it to these people, this is getting ridiculous.

These are tense times for people like Daisy's mother, a maid who arrived in the United States with her carpenter husband when she was two months pregnant with Daisy.
One, I wonder how much money they are making here in the U.S. as illegal immigrants. Father is a carpenter? Gee, how many legal U.S. residents are there that are carpenters and could use the work that that man who is illegally here is doing? Talk about "jobs that Americans won't do." Also, the Mom is a maid, but is she a maid at a hotel? If so, I know tons of people that would love a job and would work at a hotel. Is she a maid that cleans wealthy people's homes? I know legal residents who do that on the side and love it. Those aren't jobs that legal U.S. residents won't do. Those aren't jobs that black, white, brown, red, yellow, whatever color legal U.S. residents won't do.

Something needs to be done, the turning the cheek to illegal immigrants by the federal government is getting ridiculous and it is very disrespectful to those of us who have concern for this country and who are here legally.

I think it was put up because the wife of the Mexican President was visiting along with Mrs. Obama.

This is absolutely ridiculous. The parents aren't being pursued by the DHS? What corruption, it's shameful.

I like how these moochers abandoned their other daughter to come to the USA - pregnant of course so they wouldn't have to do those "hard work low paying" jobs for too long.

Funny how family reunification only works in one direction - their other daughter can rot in Peru as far as they care, they'll use this one for all they're worth cause she brings them the big money.

The hispandering possibilities from the little girl was entirely predictable regarding this marxist regime. Marxist amnesty democrats Kissing hispanic ass at every turn keeps ignorant tribally ethnocentric hispanics voting democratic and the controversy created by leftist stooges about SB1070 is designed to keep as many hispanics as is possible riled up and of course voting. Nov is not far off.

From the article:

While Daisy has automatic U.S. citizenship and lives full time with her parents, her 9-year-old sister, July, has not been so lucky. July was left behind with her grandparents when her parents moved to the United States to escape poverty.

The two sisters met for the first time last year when Daisy spent a month visiting her grandparents in the working-class San Juan de Lurigancho district of Lima.

But July misses her parents, who are unlikely to visit Peru because of their illegal status in the U.S.

July has only seen them in photographs and in video chats with a webcam.

"She cries," Juica said.


What pathetic people would do this? Never see their other daughter - because they can't use her for food stamps or for staying illegally in the USA.

The abandoned daughter is the only sympathetic figure in this whole case.
