Prayers roses and letters do not trump law. If she can travel back to Mexico for her birthings, she can go back now. She was granted a voluntary departure, she should take it and quit defying the law of our country.

The amount of time this women has spent in the US already should have no bearing on whether she stays or goes.  She hasn’t done anything the legal way.  Did she actually foot the bill for her 3 children (American Citizens) or did she let Pima County taxpayers pay for her children and continue paying for her children as they went to school, etc.  If we picked up every tab for her, go into the church and send her home.

That would be the news story, when an illegal alien drives, legally, pays her kids school tuition out of her own pocket and even paid the hospital bill for their birth.

So, Thinker, activist means disregarding the laws of your country. What part of illegal do you not understand. Why don’t you try really Thinking instead of rose scented emotional discharge.

@Thinker: Rosa had her children in Mexico, beyond the reach of your tax dollars. Her children do attend public school which I’m guessing you would agree is a good thing for the U.S. She’s a little league mom, who works as a housekeeper and has paid taxes. In Mexico she was the equivalent of a CPA. Her husband also works. Both serve as volunteers at the boys’ school and their own church community. Paul Ingram’s articles in the Sentinel have covered all this in the past. Please forgive my assumption, but an option might be to read them in order to be sure any comments you make in the future are relevant and accurate.

so if you are a little league mom, it’s all right to be in our country illegally.  Follow that up with being a housekeeper, and man you have the credentials for citizenship. The bulls+%#$ keeps coming from people that don’t care for the laws of our country. Your comments are not remotely relevant to the illegal status of this woman who should be deported.If she should be allowed to stay, it only encourages more to invade our country illegally.
