Albany Park resident fights deportation to stay with wife, infant son
Medill Reports ^ | JAN 30, 2014 | KJERSTIN WOOD

Posted on 02/05/2014 8:46:12 PM PST by moonshinner_09

Anibal Fuentes Aguilar, an undocumented immigrant, faces the daily fear of leaving his wife and 6-month-old son behind.

“My son, Franky, has acid reflux and needs medicine and care,” Fuentes said last week through an interpreter. “I’m the only one who provides for my wife and my son.”

The 27-year-old Albany Park resident is facing deportation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement after a raid on his apartment complex last year, when officers were looking for another person and inquired about Fuentes’ status.

He was told he must voluntarily leave for his native Guatemala by Jan. 31, but was granted a two- to three-week stay on his deportation while Immigration and Customs Enforcement reviews his case for prosecutorial discretion, groups supporting Fuentes announced at a press conference at the Chicago Temple Thursday.

ICE made Fuentes’ deportation a priority because he has a prior deportation on record, Gail Montenegro, public affairs officer for ICE, said by email. He was detained on Dec. 13 and was released from ICE custody Dec. 19 with electronic monitoring.

Fuentes, a day laborer, has worn an ankle bracelet since he was released and attends weekly check-ins with ICE, he said. His prior deportation was when he tried to re-enter the United States after attending his mother’s funeral in Guatemala in 2009.

“I came here to support my family,” Fuentes said through an interpreter last week. “I have no family left in Guatemala.”

“My son, Franky, has acid reflux and needs medicine and care,” ..Oh please acid reflux = taking 1 or 2 capsules and thats about all there is to it.Can someone please explain to me how he has no criminal record ? Since Fuentes has no criminal record Cicero said.“We all agree that he is here without permission, that he has this prior deportation,” Cicero said in a telephone interview. “We are asking the prosecutor, please don’t enforce this law against him.”..Please don't enforce this law and that law. He is criminal, and should be held accountable for his violation of our immigration laws .

So you put your own family in this situation, and we’re the bad guys. It’s not quite extortion, but it’s one heckuva racket.

I don’t have enough energy to read the whole article. I admit that my first inclination is that this is an anchor baby. Here’s my solution to illegal immigration, from my home page:

___________________________________________________________________

Whenever an illegal alien kills someone in a drunk driving accident or something similar, here’s what I recommend:
What can we do about it? Here’s my standard post.

RICO —Citizen Recourse

Private persons and entities may initiate civil suits to obtain injunctions and treble damages against enterprises that conspire to or actually violate federal alien smuggling, harboring, or document fraud statutes, under the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO). The pattern of racketeering activity is defined as commission of two or more of the listed crimes. A RICO enterprise can be any individual legal entity, or a group of individuals who are not a legal entity but are associated in fact, and can include nonprofit associations.

Here’s what I’ve been pushing: it’s time to file Racketeering, Influencing, and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) lawsuits.

RICO lawyers could turn it around in a few years and MAKE MONEY at the same time. I’m surprised they haven’t done it already.

In the absence of enforcement, we can get the word out in the meantime that there is money to be made in filing RICO lawsuits against employers who hire illegal aliens like this jerk.

Employers would have no trouble shutting down the border if they could get sued by someone under the RICO statutes for hiring these people in the first place. The next time an illegal alien kills someone in a drunk driving accident or somesuch thing, I’m going to point out that the victim’s family might be able to seek compensation from the employer under these statutes in the hopes that it would catch on. If this did catch on, would see such a swift backlash against illegal immigration that no employer would go near these people and they’ll all simply want to go back home.

Lets just start calling these deportations JOB TRANSFERS.

His wife and kid can join him in Guatemala. Happens all the time.

Do we hear these sob stories when servicemen are “deported” to Afghanistan?

Of course we will be endlessly bombarded by these ridiculous sob stories, just as we were relentlessly shelled with stories about cancer patients who could not get medical insurance in the run-up to the 0bamacare vote.

What you are not hearing in any of these stories is this: nobody is being deported right now, unless they satisfy one or both of two conditions: 1) they have a US felony conviction or 2) They have been deported, granted stays, and have failed to appear for a hearing on MULTIPLE occasions.

NOBODY is being deported right now simply for "being here." NOBODY. This is all baloney.

"Fuentes said through an interpreter last week"

He's been in the US for at least 5 years and can't speak a GD word of English?

How come this is commonplace when we hear these sob stories?

The illegals ALWAYS seem to "need an interpreter".

I call BS.

I bet he speaks PLENTY of English when doing his tax returns so he can qualify for the EITC.

According to wiki the ruling party is center right. So he can go home and make some money.

.....6-month-old son

“I came here to support my family,” Fuentes said

His prior deportation was when he tried to re-enter the United States after attending his mother’s funeral in Guatemala in 2009.
__________________________________________

This illegal alien did not have that son back in 2009..nor earlier still the first time he entered the US...

so there was no family to “support”...

“I came here to support my family (a 6 mo old son),” Fuentes told officials in 2014. His prior deportation was when he tried to re-enter the US 2009 after attending his mother’s funeral in Guatemala........he clearly did not have a child back in 2009.....nor earlier, the first time he entered the US illegally...so there was no family to “support”...

The conniver got his signals mixed-----he was prolly claiming children he did not have on EITC forms to suckup US tax dollars.

US authorities need to checkout his paper trail----how much money he wire-transferred to Guatemala......remember, the corrupt govts of these Third World hellholes depend on money their citizens wire back home.....which the illegal intends to live off of later.

========================================================

REPOST US Dept of the Treasury Says Illegal Aliens Collect Billions in Tax Credits According to the US Dept of Treasury’s Inspector General, more than $4.2 billion in additional child credits were paid out in 2010 to illegal immigrants. In 2005, the payouts totaled $924 million.

This program allows low income earners to claim a $1,000 per child credit. $20 billion EITC is estimated to have been paid out to these cunning "impoverished" illegals.

Most of them are collecting over and over again-----using multiple identities---falsifying official apps---claiming children they do not have and/or falsely stating kids are back in their homelands. The IRS sent $45 Million (32,000 EITC refunds) to illegals at ONE address.

=====================================================

REPOST--Senator Harry Reid Supports Giving Illegal Aliens Tax Credits for Kids Not Even Living in US Townhall.com ^ | October 30, 2013 | Mike Shedlock / FR Posted by Kaslin

US Rep. Sam Johnson, R-Texas, wants to end the practice of giving illegal immigrants tax credits for kids, but U.S. Sen.

Harry Reid, D-Nev., won’t let the House-approved measure H.R. 556 through the Senate. "The System is Working Fine" says Senator Harry Reid, even though the Joint Committee on Taxation calculates that enactment of H.R. 556 would save taxpayers $24.4 billion over the next decade.

The House of Representatives repeatedly has passed an IRS bill that could save U.S. taxpayers up to $24.4 billion over the next 10 years — but Harry Reid’s Democratic Senate will not hear it.

The Refundable Child Tax Credit Eligibility Verification Reform Act, or H.R. 556, would require tax filers to provide Social Security numbers to claim child tax credits.

Currently, the IRS allows undocumented residents to collect the $1,000 credits for dependents not even living in the country.

Watchdog reported that illegal immigrants received $4.2 billion from the tax agency in just one year. “My bill (targets) billions of dollars in waste, fraud and abuse. Instead of hitting up taxpayers for even more taxes, Washington needs to go after these billions of dollars,” said Rep. Johnson, R-Texas.

Though the GOP-controlled House has passed Johnson’s measure three times, Senate Majority Leader Reid, D-Nev., refuses to allow the bill to come up for a vote in his chamber. “The IRS has been doling out the credit to tax filers claiming children who do not even live in the country,” Johnson charged.

His prior deportation was when he tried to re-enter the United States [illegally] after attending his mother’s funeral in Guatemala in 2009.

Well pen day ho, if you had stayed in Guatemala and had a son, what Dr would you go see to treat your six month old son? Seriously, acid reflux in a six month old will likely be gone in less than a year, and we the American taxpayers don't need to be paying his bill.

What’s espanol for “boo-freakin’-hoo?” I’m not responsible for your child’s “acid reflux” (seriously? is that the best you can do?).

Your need doesn’t create an obligation on me.

“I’m the only one who provides for my wife and my son.”

If that is true, Mr. Fuentes, and you are not now and have never been partaking of social services funded by our tax money, if you have obeyed all the other laws outside of the immigration laws and paid your taxes, we will be happy to keep you and your family, PROVIDED: Mexico agrees to take one gangbangin' drugdealin' thug, his babymama and a draft choice to be named later in exchange.

Franky? Really, are we to believe a person who can’t speak English would name their kid Franky. My bet is that the name is used to get sympathy.
