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?
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.
- Curt Thompson's wife is officially an illegal alien.
- She has been an illegal alien since February 2005.
- It has taken 1 year and 9 months to actually serve a deportation to the wife of a known individual.
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org

Sascha Herrera has received a stay of deportation
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.
