A Honduran woman with legal immigrant status was sentenced to two years probation Friday in Baton Rouge federal court after admitting that she illegally transported minivan loads of undocumented immigrants from Houston to Miami.
Eight months of her probation must be served at a halfway house.
Sonia Lisseth Suazo, 39, of Houston, could have been sentenced to as many as 14 months in prison under federal guidelines. But she begged Chief U.S. District Judge Brian A. Jackson for leniency.
I dont want to leave my daughters alone by themselves, Suazo said through a Spanish interpreter. They need me, as does my mother.
Suazo admitted she was driving seven illegal immigrants to Miami after her 2002 Honda Odyssey was stopped June 2 on Interstate 10 by a West Baton Rouge Parish sheriffs deputy. Her admission was reported in an affidavit by Special Agent Richard V. Lovell, of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Lovell added that Suazo also admitted she had made four previou

Probation. ROTFL! What a joke.
“What difference does it make ?” PING
If she is not a citizen she could have been deported...and should have been sent back to Honduras
Sounds like more Hispanic and Mestizo Racism. German home schoolers who are true political refugees are deported....but helping Hispanic/Mestizo Illegal Aliens is OK
Seriously, if we actually enforced existing law, the problem would be cut by 90 percent in a year. For example, if everyone who transported an illegal alien was prosecuted and their vehicle was subject to forfeiture, that would be be a big deterrent. If the vehicles used by illegals and their homes and other assets were subject to forfeiture, that would be a deterrent. If employers went to jail for hiring them, that would be a deterrent to hiring them. If it was a felony crime to receive public services while being in the country illegally, and if people were put in jail for it, that would send 'em packing.
Marco Rubio needs to just go ahead and join the Dems right now, because he has lost all credibility as a national candidate. He's just another progressive, and the speed with which Washington changed him is alarming. Toomey has also been disappointing. Thank God for Ted Cruz.
“Sonia Lisseth Suazo, 39, of Houston, could have been sentenced to as many as 14 months in prison....”
Why couldn’t she have been sent back to Honduras?
Sentenced to probation? Why not sentenced to a year and then *immediate* deportation?
Laws? Haven't you heard? During last year;s campaign this nation's first "Third World President" declared that the entire world is entitled to US citizenship.
Jackson noted Suazos family ties, but said: Mr. Stevens is correct. This is a very serious crime.
This is a very serious crime. So we're going to give her a stern scolding, and let her stay in our country where she can become a dependable Democrat.
It wouldn't be so bad if we also got to control the world. But he's giving that away, too.
“Bailiff, whack her peepee”
We can’t do that! Her daughters were probably born here and are citizens.....and they need their mother!/s
"Legal" Hispanic immigrant and doesn't speak a lick of English. Wow. Now there's a shocker.
These people are not "undocumented immigrants - they are ILLEGAL ALIENS. Calling them undocumented immigrants is like calling shoplifting an "undocumented purchase."
Haha, so true!
Then when she said, “they’re all Democrats”......they handed out voter registration forms, coupons for Taco Bell, drivers’ licenses, photo ID’s.....shots of tequila and a video of Obama doing the Mexican Hat Dance.
