CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The status of a Perry Township man who faced deportation to his native Mexico on Thursday remained on hold while immigration officials reviewed his case.
Ricardo Ramos -- an undocumented worker in Lake County for the past 16 years and the married father of three U.S. citizen children -- had been told he had to leave the United States by Jan. 1 after he was found driving without a license and was referred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
He then was given a stay of "voluntary departure" until Thursday through the efforts of U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur.
But Cleveland-based immigration lawyer David Leopold filed a new stay-of-removal request with ICE on Wednesday, "hoping common sense can prevail. I've asked them to exercise the discretion available to them under the law.

2. Mexico encourages illegal entry into the USA. At one time they produced mini-brochures on how to do just that.
3. HOWEVER, their OWN southern border with Guatemala is shut as TIGHT as can be. They DON'T want ANY immigration to their own country. MASSIVE double standard to THEIR good and our own detriment.
If this was us in Mexico with our 3 Mexican citizens kids and our Mexican wife we are an illegal America Mexico wants to deport us there would be no one protesting,no churches would show up.. We would be locked up for using document fraud to work 2 jobs and pay taxes and driving without license /insurance would result in Mexico keeping our car and no one would protest for us..
Just to show that I’m not heartless. I think that the family should not be torn apart. They can ALL go to Mexico.
He can apply for a green card and go through the legal channels just like a real law abiding person would do. Oh, after he pays the fines for lying on forms, tax fraud, driving w/o license and no insurance.
How about dual citizenship? I THINK the U.S.A. might allow it now. I forget.
We should keep the family unit together - in Mexico.
