IXMIQUILPAN, Mexico (Reuters) - Seamstress Paulina Gutierrez, an ethnic Otomi Indian, prayed every day for years for a miracle to reunite her with her two sons, who were smuggled into the United States as children and have lived in permanent fear of deportation back to Mexico.
Now, thanks to a major immigration policy shift by U.S. President Barack Obama, she can barely contain her excitement at the prospect of once again hugging her two boys - and two grandchildren she has never met.
Without papers to get back into the United States, Gutierrez' sons cannot visit her in Mexico. She says at 58 she is too old to creep back across the U.S. border with human smugglers, or "coyotes." So she has not seen them since returning to Mexico in 2007.
Sitting on a plastic chair in her humble provisions store on the outskirts of the heavily migrant city of Ixmiquilpan, 95 miles north of Mexico City, her eyes well with tears as she recalls making the heart-wrenching decision to leave her sons and husband behind in the United States.
She had to return to Mexico to look after her ailing parents.
So Obama's order on Friday allowing young undocumented immigrants to stay legally and work as long as they meet a series of conditions was a godsend for her.
It is also a major victory for President Felipe Calderon, who had all but given up on winning improved terms for Mexico's massive migrant population after the September 11, 2001, attacks relegated the issue to the back burner and shifted the U.S. focus to Iraq and Afghanistan.

This is what he's playing with. In the end what he wants is turn our society topsy-turvy for his progressive puppetmasters.
She is 58, how old are her sons?
United States ,Oh that place where everyone goes ,but no one lives there ,until countries start planting their flags and call it theirs
It's a trap!
Why don’t they meet in Mexico? They don’t have illegal alien laws - do they?
per the article.. both are under 30,, one is 28, they have been here for over 10 years.. one needs to get a GED,, they’d qualify for O’s ‘plan’.
It’s called the thin edge.
Eventually, it would get expanded to the point where, functionally speaking, you have open borders and all wages of skilled and unskilled labour is driven into the toilet.
If she is 58 her sons would be in their forties. Mexican women, especially indians start having babies when they are 14. Maybe the story has her great grandchildren confused with her children. At any rate, this story does not pass the smell test.
Of course, they could always go down and stay with her while they look for jobs and apartments down there in Mexico. You’d never know it from the illegal immigration advocates, but Mexico actually *does* have things like jobs and schools...
Once again, el Commondunce’ steps forward into a pile of cow crap.
Lets all just well up in tears /sarc
My husband knew about an illegal alien that regularly went back to see his family and recrossed the boarder without a problem. Illegal is illegal, period. In any other country, if you were caught, you’d either be in jail or deported.
We are going to be amazed at how many illegals are between 16 and 30 with document packages that prove that they have been here for 5 years...
the broad is so glad to be in a commie country after sneaking away from another one, just keep the checks coming.
Thanks Truth29, I now have to wrap a second layer of duct tape around my head to keep it from exploding.
Why dont they meet in Mexico? They dont have illegal alien laws - do they?
Actually they do. Very strick laws.
