Memo to illegals: 'Don't Let the Door Hit You in the Ass on the Way OutTopics: Immigration and Border Issues
"Vickie" says she's tired of living in fear: the fear of immigration officials, Utah politicians targeting people like her and the bad economy here.Two thoughts: First of all, "Vickie's" boss ought to be shut down for hiring illegals, and secondly, any exodus of the "Vickies" throughout the country is nothing short of a win-win for the U.S.A. Unfortunately, the process is hampered by immigration attorneys that stall, stall, stall the process ... knowing the "Vickies" will probably lose eventually, but seek only to buy time in the hope that changes in the immigration laws might come about through Obama and Congressional Democrats ignoring shutting down the border while pushing through amnesty.
So after 18 years in Utah, working without documents, she says her family will probably return to Mexico. ...
Vickie talks about why her family may join the flow south. Immigration officials started deportation proceedings against her after they found she used a false Social Security number. She was held in jail for 17 days. Her husband was still in detention when she was interviewed. She lost a job because her boss worried her return would bring attention from authorities "and nobody there has papers." In a tough economy, it's hard for her to find other work -- and as a noncitizen she does not qualify for welfare or unemployment benefits.
