Coupeville mother of 5 seeks mercy for detained husband
PNW Local News ^ | Oct 16 2011 | - Jessie Stensland

Posted on 10/16/2011 11:05:01 AM PDT by moonshinner_09

By all accounts, Jaime Villicana-Campos is a wonderful husband and a beloved father to his children.

He held two physically demanding jobs and worked seven days a week to support his large family. He somehow still made time to spend with his little girls, especially 6-year-old Angelica who suffers from epilepsy. She is particularly close to her doting father and is known in the family as “Daddy’s girl.”

But because of the nation’s sometimes vexing immigration laws, Villicana-Campos is sitting in a Tacoma federal detention facility. He was nabbed by immigration officials in June, a month before his fifth daughter was born. He still hasn’t met baby Sophia.

In the meantime, his wife and five daughters languish without him in a Central Whidbey home that his brother-in-law rented for the family. His wife, Terra Villicana, is fighting for his freedom, but suffers from depression that’s so debilitating that she had to be temporarily admitted to a psychiatric unit. Tears constantly stream down her cheeks as she discusses the untenable situation.

“This is beyond pain. This is torture,” Terra said. “The hardest thing is to hear the kids cry at night. They just want their dad.”

Jaime Villicana-Campos is married to an American citizen and has five children born in America. He has lived in America since he was 14. He worked hard and paid taxes. But still, he faces prison followed by deportation to Mexico because of a mistake he made in 1997.

Just a few causal mistakes, Terra admits that her husband sneaked into the country twice. The first time was when he was 14. Then he again entered illegally after he was deported.

In a statement on the case, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement corroborates the details of Villicana-Campos’ story, but adds that he was convicted of trafficking cocaine and methamphetamine. He was deported to Mexico “based on that aggravated felony conviction,” according to ICE.

Wife quotes...At the time of his arrest, he was a manager of a horse farm and also worked at a mobile home park for seniors. Terra said he was loved by the residents and was known for helping folks on his own time.

“They were crying because they miss him so much,” she said.

>>(wife says) “I’m miserable every day,” she said. “It’s so difficult to answer these kids’ questions.”<<

It is easy. “Your father is guilty of multiple crimes, including illegally entering the USA twice and trafficking in drugs while here.”

The truth isn’t hard for people of good character.

Ooops one little detail - He's a drug dealer!

When and if he gets out send them all back as a family to Mexico where they can all legally be together.

I am so tired of illegals asking for mercy.

What mercy do they have on illegals in Mexico? Let’s give them the same mercy they give others.

We are losing our identity in this country and becoming another socialist south africa (white payback) country. That country’s going to hell and the media is ignoring the atrocities going on there because whites are the ones they’re beign done against. If it were blacks it’d be ‘apartheid II’.

This is balkanization of the US and the media’s all for it.

Exactly. I’d even say let’s put them all together right now where the dad is. Then they won’t be apart. Give them a family cell. They’ll have all their housing and food and security needs all taken care of until they’re all given a trip back home to their REAL country.

Lol. Folks, there are tens of thousands of guys just like him. Multi deportations, and the fed prisons are over half full with the invaders. If they are even sitting in Club Fed it means they have violated US laws multiple times AND usually have done it while running dope and/or involved in ethnic gangs.

Terra, sympathy is found in the dictionary between shiite and syphilis.

Great opportunity to get rid of 7, for the price of detaining one. That would be efficiency in due process. Even if the kids were born in the US, this would test Mexico’s tolerance on providing for children of other nations.

Let's see.. hhhmmmm. Yes, must be there's another state trying to live by our heritage as a Nation of laws not men. Alabama it is I think.

Yep, time to flood the media with sob stories about "victims" of that hateful, bigoted practice.

When will America ever be as good as all other countries? Alas I despair that it will ever happen. Who reading this has not committed a felony or two, made everyday mistakes, whose spouse is starving to death while we are unjustly imprisoned. . . .

Agreed.

The United States should not be in the business of breaking up families. Dual citizenship anchor babies need to stay with their deported parents.

They can return to the US when they reach their majority, and can declare US citizenship and repudiate their citizenship in the other nation.

In this case with only one parent being a drug smuggling illegal alien, the other parent can decide whether US residence trumps keeping the family together in The Old Country.

I hate that the kids are the most innocent victims in this. I believe that they cry for their Dad and that he worked hard to support them.

But I blame the parents for putting them in this position.

The way this poor family is being treated is just horrible! They should immdeiately have their husband and father released, and given $2,000,000 tax free dollars from the United States treasury. The father should immediately be put in congress, have a movie made of his life, and be given a taxpayer supported lifetime pension. As final expiation a randomly selected white gringo should be stripped naked and whipped down Seattle’s main street and hung by the neck until dead.

There is nothing “vexing” about the immigration laws, except how they aren’t usually enforced properly.

Yes, by all means an illegal and drug smuggler is exactly the kind of guy who warms the cockles of our hearts.

She is crying because he is in prison, not because he is being deported.

She knows, and we know, the sooner they deport him the sooner he will be home.

He will be back as soon as he can swim back across the Rio Grande and will probably carry 50 lbs. of Heroin back with him.

He has come back twice, he will come back again they will move to a new town and start again, Deportation is just a chance to go back home see the folks and return.

What Perry has to do with this is that he has hung out a a huge weclome sign in Texas, promising big bucks (up to $100,000 each) to those invaders who would break into our country and steal slots from Americans who want to go to TX colleges.

The spinoff is that all sorts of riff-raff come along too, looking for other freebies, and other ways to steal from Americans.

So, this story happened in Texas? IIRC, it was the federal judiciary that ruled states have to give illegals free stuff. You can argue that giving illegals who live in Texas in state tuition is wrong and I would agree but giving illegals welfare, free ER medical care, SNAP, schooling for their kids, etc. is not up to Perry. It is a federal mandate.

"But because of the nation’s sometimes vexing immigration laws, Villicana-Campos is sitting in a Tacoma federal detention facility."

Sneaks into the country twice; convicted drug dealer; can't become a citizen because he is an aggravated felon.

Author Jessie Stensland sure has strange notions about "vexatious immigration laws." I wonder why he/she isn't out in solidarity with his/her compatriots at "Occupy This."

And Rick perry can pay (out of HIS OWN 401K) for Papa's five kids to attend a Texas University some day (as out of state residents) ...

What a cruel heartless individual to knowingly put innocent children in that position. She knew the husband was an illegal from the time she married him. Knew she was putting her children in the position that they could one day have their father taken from them.

There are thousands of children going to bed each night missing their dad or mom who is overseas serving this country

How about a few stories of how that affects them and how the government could give them a bit more to make it easier on them.

Perry capitulated on the stuff he did have control over. A big item was his financial incentive to keep the invaders coming over and stealing limited college slots from Americans. Those families drug along a whole bunch of other freeloader invaders.

If you want to give him a pass, give him a pass. The rest of the country won’t, which is why he has plummeted in popularity with primary voters.

I am not happy about the tuition thing. The point I was trying to make is that a whole bunch of the freebies, which cost way more than providing in-state tuition to illegals, are mandated by our federal courts. That is a bigger incentive to illegals then anything Perry has done and it needs to be adressed.
