An immigration judge in Chicago has given a reprieve to 11 illegal immigrants slated for deportation.Now, why on earth would Judge Cuevas do that? I wonder...
The Chicago-area immigrants were arrested during a high-profile nationwide sweep involving a company called IFCO Systems.
Judge Carlos Cuevas on Monday gave the former IFCO employees a 1-year stay of deportation, on the condition that they agreed not to appeal.This is a joke, right? Please tell me this is a joke. A sick, sick joke that Judge Cuevas has been entrusted with this power and that Chicago provides a climate where he feels comfortable abusing it in this way.
The delay gives Congress time to act on a bill that could grant legal status to many of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the Untied States.
Think I'm over-reacting?
An attorney for the IFCO workers said he's surprised and pleased by the judge's ruling.I bet he is. Even the freakin' defense lawyer can't believe the cojones on Judge Cuevas.
Speaks volumes, doesn't it?
Illegal Immigration * Deportation * IFCO * Chicago
