What 'No amnesty' means

AP reports:
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a suburban Kansas City woman's request Friday to postpone her deportation, a penalty she faces because courts found she lied about her citizenship when she crossed the border illegally from Mexico years ago...

Myrna Dick, 32, is married to an American citizen, and her 19-month-old son was born in the Kansas City area. Dick, who speaks fluent English, was raised in Chihuahua, Mexico, but spent the last two decades in the United States...

After the rulings, Dick said the family was preparing to drive across the border Saturday to resettle with friends in Tijuana.

"Congress doesn't care about what kind of future [her son] Zachary will have," she said. "Immigration reform won't work unless they make laws that satisfy American families, because not everyone is going to want to move to Tijuana."

This is wrong on soooooooo many levels. Presumably womans Family (she was 12 at the time)sneaks across border, (thereby breaking the law) gets married to an American, (presumably to gain Citizenship)
Has a son (who by virtue of American Father, is Automatically a citizen)

Gets caught and deported and somehow we are supposed to feel SORRY for her?
Nice try, ain't happenin' Good-Bye and C-YA!! BTW you don't think she's back in the states already do ya?


"Congress doesn't care about what kind of future [her son] Zachary will have," she said. "Immigration reform won't work unless they make laws that satisfy American families, because not everyone is going to want to move to Tijuana." This is the statement of a Future if not CURRENT Democratic voter if I have ever seen one...Why doesn't she just come out and say, "I'm a victim of my own bad choice, How can I Possibly be held accountable for my actions"

And now we are supposed to make laws, with the input of the Mexican Government too? What kind of Stupid statement is this? SHE is the one who should have thought about the consequences of her actions in the event she got caught. NOT the US Government.

BTW: Bill, when is that Karl Rove indictment coming down again?

Her husband and son are both citizens. The US is essentially deporting te entire family because of something she did 20 years ago, as a 12-year-old.

And you think that's justice?
