Georgia State Senator Curt Thompson's Illegal Alien Wife In Hiding [Update]

Bookmark and Share

Georgia State Senator Curt Thompson, a Democrat, is married to an illegal alien, Sascha Herrera. Courts issued a deportation order, but when (Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) showed up at the home to issue the order, Sascha Herrera was nowhere to be found.

It should be noted that Curt Thompson is a big supporter of illegal aliens. I wonder why?

Maybe Sascha Herrera is hiding out with Elvira Arellano?

NY Times

The wife of a Georgia legislator known for his strong support of immigrants’ rights is in hiding after federal agents came to their home on Tuesday with an order to deport her to her native Colombia, her lawyer said.

In a written statement issued on Wednesday, State Senator Curt Thompson, 37, a Democrat, said his wife, Sascha Herrera, 28, missed an immigration-related court hearing in February 2005. Mr. Thompson said notices about an asylum application that had been mistakenly filed on her behalf had been sent to the wrong address, causing her to miss the hearing.

Because Ms. Herrera did not appear in court, a federal judge issued a deportation order in February 2005, Charles H. Kuck, Ms. Herrera’s immigration lawyer, said on Friday.

Mr. Kuck said Mr. Thompson told him that his wife was not at the couple’s home when Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrived on Tuesday to take her into custody. Mr. Kuck would say only that Ms. Herrera was in a safe place.

So here's the facts.

  1. Curt Thompson's wife is officially an illegal alien.

  2. She has been an illegal alien since February 2005.

  3. It has taken 1 year and 9 months to actually serve a deportation to the wife of a known individual.

  4. Curt Thompson has had 1 year and 9 months to attempt to clear up this situation ahead of time, yet chose to "wait and see" and is now whining.

What does ICE have to say about this case?

Marc Raimondi, a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Washington, said he could not comment on the specifics of Ms. Herrera’s case. Generally, Mr. Raimondi said, “People who are here legally are very, very careful about their immigration status.” Of the couple’s claims of ignorance about the notices, he said, “It sounds like a lot of song and dance.”

A song and dance indeed.

If they catch Sascha Herrera and there aren't some behind the scenes backdoor dealings and special treatment for Curt Thompson, a public official, then she will be thrown out of the US and be barred from returning for at least 10 years.

If you want to email Curt Thompson and let him know what you think of this illegal activity his email address is curt.thompson@senate.ga.gov

After the 12-month headache with the INS getting two Romanian orphans into the country to join our family, it always makes me crazy when I see those who just cut the line passing unmarked.

I think Thompson should resign as he has abandoned the premise of his office and oath. His actions are totally against the United States of America and against the laws and policies. I think he should do the "RIGHT" thing and resign and never be in public office again. By his own actions, he has violated law. By his actions and that of his illegal alien wife, they have slapped the American people in the face and spit on the laws and policies of this country. Frankly, I think she should be deported and denied entry ever again as she has deliberately flouted the law and banked on her husband's status to give her a free ride in the country. Maybe he should be in jail for treasonous actions.

Mr thompson has used his senate business as an excuse to keep cases which are due to be heard from being scheduled. a person filing for unemployment benefits since july 2008 is still out of work ..no source of income the appeal hearing is delayed further by attorney until the legislative session is over. Unfair in that I have already lost my home since the appeal. I guess now I will starve while he works on keeping his illegal wife here. That is some representation my senator has for me a native American. I feel that there must be a confllict of interest being an attorney for the public and being a senator.

I live in Curt's district and I will say that 1 in 2 people here are illegal immigrants. It is not that he is special, it is because that there are so many it has become a "We don't care anymore".

I was born in Florida. I live on a street now where I am probably the only legal person on it. I have also dated in the past several illegal aliens.

I do know that it is a long drawn out process to become a legal citizen.

I'm glad that Curt hasn't abandoned her. That should say something.
