Mexico Passes Resolution on Deportation
AP ^ | 11/14/6 | JULIE WATSON

MEXICO CITY -- Mexico's Congress was swayed Tuesday by a 7-year-old boy on a mission to save his mom.

Second-grader Saul Arellano, a U.S. citizen, appeared in Mexico's 500-member Chamber of Deputies to plead for help in lobbying Washington to stop the deportation of his mother, an illegal immigrant who has taken refuge in a Chicago church. His efforts paid off with a resolution calling on the Bush administration to suspend the deportation of Elvira Arellano and any other illegal immigrant parents of U.S. citizens.

If the U.S. agrees, it would "create a precedent that will benefit more than 4.9 million children who have been born in the United States and whose parents live under the threat of deportation," said Mexican congressman Jose Jacques, who lived in the United States for 33 years and has an American daughter and granddaughter.

Flashing cameras and swarms of reporters surrounded the boy as he entered the chamber. But instead of stepping to the podium, he was swept into a side room, where he hid his face and ducked under a table.

"I think being so small he was kind of freaked," family friend Jesus Carlin said.

Saul then took the microphone and spoke to reporters in Spanish, describing what he wanted from Mexico's lawmakers: "I want them to tell President Bush to end the deportations so that my mother and other families can stay together in the United States."

Cry me a river.

Send her home before she drops out any more children that we are supposed to support.

uh.....well.....NO.

But....perhaps the Bush/Kennedy amnesty tragedy will make the plea a moot point.

They have no shame, no guilt about the glee they get rid of their own people.

"Cry me a river."

Don't do that. A few more might come.

The mexican govt needs to send over a few hundred thousand dollars to use for healthcare for these two.

"Fox's spokesman Ruben Aguilar acknowledges that Arellano broke U.S. law, but "we think there exist certain elements of a humanitarian nature that should be taken into account to avoid splitting up the family."

There is. They can live together in Mexico.

Another slap in the face from Mexico.

"Save his mom..." From what? Mexico? The place her son is at?

Did I miss the clause in the United States Constitution that says Mexico has final approval over our laws and their enforcement?

What a snivelling, corrupt commode of a country Mexico is. Does it have any redeeming qualities?

Gad, I wish we could pick our neighbors.

Some illegal tried to shoot one of our Tulsa police officers the other day (luckily had a vest).

Did the mexican govt want the perp to stay here in the U.S. too? Or they willing to take him back and incarcerate him.

The mexican govt only whines when it is going to cost them any blow-back money that the illegals make here, and take down there. By coming out against U.S. executions against their people, it looks like they care about them.

Better yet, the Church that is aiding and abetting this illegal alien should be court-ordered to support her, her spawn and as many other illegals as THEY wish to let in.

I'm waiting for Mexico to pass a law making illegal for US employers to require SSAN or green cards.
