La Ley?

Source: suntimes

Chicago radio station "La Ley," who were instrumental in the "Gran Estupido Marches" last summer and call themselves the "champion for Latinos and the legalization of undocumented immigrants" have found themselves in a bit of a pickle...

Winning a Chevrolet Corvette is the stuff of dreams.

In Maribel Nava Alvarez's case, it has been a nightmare.

The former Little Village resident said officials with local radio station La Ley 107.9 FM and its parent company, Spanish Broadcasting System, withheld the gray sports car she won in a La Ley raffle when they discovered she was an undocumented resident.

Maribel Nava Alvarez (inset) claims she was threatened after winning a contest for a car like this one, a 1999 Corvette.

What's worse, she said, is that an SBS attorney allegedly threatened to alert authorities of her immigration status once he learned she intended to take her battle to court.

In it's letter the station said...

"I will caution you that if you insist on filing suit against SBS, I will in turn be forced to refer this matter to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as I believe your client is in this country illegally. Please communicate that to your client for her consideration," Cueva wrote in a Dec. 19, 2005, letter to Alvarez's attorney, Federico Rodriguez.

Champions of the undocumented indeed!

Oh, and those "shadows?" The ones "undocumented immigrants" live in? My thoughts on
