Posted on 11/14/2006 12:39:24 PM PST by SmithL
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."

Throw her out. pronto.
Send her home before she drops out any more children that we are supposed to support.
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.
IS she still in that church?
Boot them all out.
"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.
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?
Deport the illegals and their snotty anchor brats!
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.
Here's the first hint at an amnesty deal...
Not that I am surprised...
Better yet, the Church that is aiding and abetting this illegal alien should be court-ordered to support her
Hey, they hope the notoriety will bring up the tithe till. Damn the law to hell.
These criminal invaders and the Mexican government have no shame and Mexico wants our 'elected' who swear to 'uphold the law' in their oaths to American citizen to disregard that oath to America's citizens, and allow the criminal invasion to continue. I may as well not have a country if this woman remains and our elected approve of her remaining. 'Uphold the Law' - Throw her out.
"But....perhaps the Bush/Kennedy amnesty tragedy will make the plea a moot point."
What is totally incomprehensible is that even the POTUS may decide to act against the wishes and interest of the American people.
As long as they pay the illegals bills with it, and leave the taxpayer out, fine by me.
Those that want illegals here should give up their OWN money to support them, buy their insurance, etc, those of us who don't want to support illegals, should not have to PAY for them.
B O Y C O T T **** M E X I C O !!!
I guess that settles that. Nobody can resist a plea from a young boy in distress, that's for sure. Oh, wait, there was that little Elian Gonzales forced deportation, once, wasn't there? At gunpoint, I might add.
We need badly to go back to the original concept of completely separate States. Those that want aliens, can pay for them. If you don't like the laws in a particular state, well, move where you like it better.
Same goes for gay-marriage, abortion, and on and on and on and on.
That's very Constitutional of you! I'm for it.
The power of the OBL seems to have no limits. ICE has known for months now exactly where she is at in Chicago and 'someone' in D.C. is preventing her from being deported, even while her son is in Mexico. She should be arrested, prosecuted, and prisoned for returning a second time, currently a felony, isn't it? Her son can remain in Mexico. Meantime, the county, against Federal immigration laws, looks to welcome her into a new 'sanctuary' city. Elvira has been a busy woman and is getting all the help she needs from the D.C. OBL.

(ILLEGAL) Immigrant Mother Defends Son's Future
.............."Cook County Commissioner Roberto Maldonado, inspired by Arellanos courage, drafted a bill calling for the county, which includes Chicago, to be designated a sanctuary for immigrants. The measure would prohibit county employees from asking people about their immigration status, thereby ensuring that undocumented immigrants would have access to all county services."......
OBL ACTION TAKEN:
CHICAGO (WBBM) -- A Cook County Board committee has narrowly passed a proposal to make the county a sanctuary for illegal immigrants. WBBM's Steve Miller reports. The vote was 3 to 2 in committee - on a move to make Cook County a safe space for undocumented immigrants. Even the sponsor, Commissioner Roberto Maldonado, called it symbolic, because nothing would stop federal agents from making immigration raids. "And it is symbolic to tell the people of Cook County who happen to be undocumented that, look, we recognize that we are a county of immigrants." Commissioner Tony Peraica voted against the resolution. He says the County Board has no jurisdiction. "And I believe this particular issue would create a false sense of hope in people's minds that they can, in fact, continue to stay in an illegal capacity with impunity." The resolution also forbids county employees from asking people about their immigration status.
The resolution still has to go to the full board."
NEXT BOARD MEETING - TOMORROW, NOV 14TH....CALL OR FAX ALL REPRESENTATIVES TODAY!
No, but it'll probably be a part of the comprehensive immigration reform bill coming our way!
What is it?... GET AS MANY AS YOU CAN AND GET THEM ACROSS THE BORDER BEFORE THE BUILD THE WALL? - ROFL :)
Close her hatch before she launches another misslie out of her silo, PULEEEEZE!
"We need badly to go back to the original concept of completely separate States. Those that want aliens, can pay for them. If you don't like the laws in a particular state, well, move where you like it better.

...best plan I've ever heard since I joined FR.
If so, this changes everything. Throw the brat out!
Throw her out and prosecute the church members harboring her and take away the church's tax exemption.
Illegal immigration is #1 on Mexico's list. To he!! with Oaxaca and 40% of their people living in poverty. Fox,Calderone and the PAN party are pathetic.
cut a deal with mexico....
the US will keep her...but they must take back the next 10 million!!!!!
I think you'll find that in the "Bush Doctrine".
I recently did some research on that. I found one nobel prize winner, one inventor. That was about it. They've produced little for themselves or the world throughout history, well except export of their own citizens.
I'm sure the Mexican government will just cave right in and let that happen.
I Support Immigration. LEGAL Immigration!
And this boy should have been in school somewhere..not hiding behind a desk in Mexico..
4.9 million Democrats who will be eligible to vote. Do we really need more?
And there are 4.9 million of those anchor brats here. I wonder if those are just the children of Mexican nationals or if that number includes all children of illegal aliens? (Just damn!)
"more than 4.9 million children who have been born in the United States and whose parents live under the threat of deportation"
I heard last week, that a poll taken of Mexican citizens in Mexico projected that a full 70% of the adult population would move to the US today if they could legally do so------
so many reasons,
so likely to happen with GWB and a Dem congress.
