Elvira Arellano in Mexico
Elvira Arellano deported to Mexico from the United States is becoming the Cause Celeb of illegal aliens.
Since Arellano was arrested in Los Angeles and returned to Mexico she’s engaged in a whirlwind of public appearances where she’s been heralded as a hero for defying U.S. authorities by taking sanctuary in a church.
In the United States, her yearlong battle made her a polarizing figure alternately viewed as an icon of immigrant rights or a selfish lawbreaker.
But in Mexico, Arellano’s experience is portrayed as a story of principled resistance, of a woman who fought before becoming one of the thousands of illegal immigrants who file sadly back into this border metropolis every year.
“You’ve become the voice of all the Elviras in the U.S.,” said Heriberto Garcia, of Mexico’s National Commission on Human Rights, an independent organization. “The voice of female undocumented immigrants who pursue the dream of working and forming a family.”
No Rule of Law spoken in Tijuana.
Does this attitude toward breaking American immigration law give ANYONE a CLUE?
Mr. President, secure the southern border as you promised. Close it now.
