An undocumented Mexican immigrant returned this weekend to the Chicago church where she once famously lived for a year seeking refuge from federal authorities.
Elvira Arellano, deported in 2007, re-crossed the border last week near San Diego to protest U.S. immigration laws, specifically ones she says often keeps families living in two different countries.
Arellano, with her 5-month- and 15-year-old sons, was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials upon entering the country. After a brief detention, Arellano and her baby were released on supervision and await a September hearing where she can plead her case for asylum, said her attorney Chris Bergin. The teenager, Saul, is a U.S. citizen.
Arellano is allowed to travel, Bergin said, and arrived in Chicago early Sunday morning. While she awaits her hearing she will again live at the Adalberto United Methodist Church, which previously took her in, her attorney said.

This wretched woman has been deported before and she gets RELEASED after re-entering illegally again? This is so wrong. She and her family can all be together - in their home country, Mehico.
Having babies Americans don’t want to have.
Of course she doesn’t HAVE to hide. It just makes a more compelling image.
Put her in jail and place the children up for adoption.
There was a time when the law meant something in this country. The commies can pass all the gun laws they want. I’ll go illegal alien on them. The law enforcers can kiss my red, white and blue @$$. Their laws don’t apply to me.
She plays the system and gives a manicured middle finger to the Amercian Flag. I say boot her out or lock her up. Either way, she will get her some attention all right.
More like a CINO.
I can't quite identify the date when "Anchor Baby Immigration" became a legal and "New Normal" alternative to the U.S. immigration laws.
When I see how these women carry on, I can understand why unmarried mothers used to be shunned by society. Now that they are encouraged, they are bold, demanding and irresponsible.
