Feds move to deport Norcross state senator's wife

Jake sez...Heh!
Federal immigration officials appeared at the home of State Sen. Curt Thompson (D-Norcross) this week to inform him that his new wife has a deportation order against her.

Thompson told agents his wife, Sascha Herrera of Colombia, was not at home at that time. She has not been taken into custody.

Thompson, who has been an outspoken advocate for immigrant rights, said he checked Herrera's immigration status before marrying her in April 2006. *snip*

Thompson advocated for immigrant rights during debates on illegal immigration that dominated both the state Legislature and Congress this year. He is a frequent speaker at events focused on immigration, including an October rally near the Capitol that drew a crowd of about 2,000 to march for legalization for immigrants.
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
