This is exactly why Americans did not want the Immigration Reform Bill. We have allowed an illegal alien to take sanctuary in a church and thumb her nose at deportation. She has been inside Chicago’s Adalberto United Methodist Church (drat! wouldn’t you know it’s Methodist!) for almost a year now.
With the failure of Senate Bill 1639, the sanctuaried Elvira Arellano, has called for a “Campaign of Resistance.” According to LaRaza Newspaper, Arellano is demanding “an immediate moratorium on all raids and deportations.” AND SHE PLANS on “bringing this government and this economy to a halt.” Lots of people are listening.
The failure of ICE to yank this woman out the church and set her on the road home, along with her seven year old son (U.S. citizen), is an insult to our rule of law and a hard slap in the face to citizens, both legal and legally naturalized.
Eric Zorn,columnist for the Chicago Tribune gives us some insight into Arellano:
She’s not a particularly good cause celebre, as these things go. She has twice entered the country illegally, has been convicted of carrying a false Social Security card, speaks very poor English for someone who has been in this country nine years and she plays her so-called “anchor baby,” a 7-year-old son who is a U.S. citizen because he was born here, as her trump card.
Any illegal, and especially any illegal who continues to break our laws, after the one they broke by encroaching our borders in the first place, deserves no tolerance.
Arellano is quoted as saying America’s immigration laws are broken. The truth is the laws are not broken, they are just not enforced. That’s not my fault or your fault. If Arellano had not encroached, this would not be a problem.
I expect Immigration officials to send her packing. Reader’s out there in Chicago-land, I hope you plan to renew your protests loudly, and let your officials know just how outraged you are. It’s a good bet that your taxpayer dollars are used to monitor this sanctuaried illegal.
Once again, Arellano, from inside a politically motivated church, plans to bring our government and economy to a halt. Get her out of this country!
