Judge Dismisses Elvira's Desperately Unfounded Lawsuit

Judge Dismisses Pastor's Lawsuit for Immigration Activist

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed on behalf of an immigration activist who took refuge in a Chicago church after the government ordered her to deportation to Mexico.

Elvira Arellano, 31, had hoped the judge would rule that deporting her would violate the constitutional rights of her 7-year-old son, Saul, an American citizen.

But U.S. District Judge Amy J. St. Eve ruled Friday that the boy's rights would not be violated, though she did say the child would suffer a hardship.

"The question before the court is whether that hardship is of constitutional magnitude — under any construction of the alleged facts, it is not," St. Eve said in her order.
I'd have gone with "Illegal Alien" instead of "Immigration Activist" in the title, but at least the judge did the right thing.

I am sick to death of people whining about how the federal government is breaking up families. It was illegal for Elvira to come here the first time (you know, the first time she was deported for being here illegally). So she clearly knew it was illegal the second time she entered the country illegally. Then she had Saul. Still here illegally. Then she was charged with and convicted of Social Security fraud, which led to the current order of deportation (which has been put off by several private bills in Congress, mind you) which she is avoiding by hiding out at Adalberto.

The law has not changed in this whole time. She came illegally, she stayed illegally, she worked illegally. The person who bears responsibility for Saul's current situation is Elvira, and Elvira alone.

I have plenty of beefs with the government and those elected to serve the American people. Let me say that last part again. Those elected to serve the American people.

My only beef with them in this situation is that Elvira is still in the church, moaning about a situation she created and demanding something that she has no right to demand.

Arrest her, already, and send her back to Mexico.
