Single mother struggles with abuse, deportation issues
Over and over again, Adela Hernandez* asks herself, “What is best for my child?”
Five years ago, she came to Kansas City to learn English, so that she could come back and put her degree in Business Administration to better use. She soon met José*, a man originally from the same state where she grew up. They married in August of 2002.
It wasn’t long before Hernandez was pregnant and her husband was beating her.
The stereotype of the macho Mexican male, José drank heavily, was unresponsive to her needs, and imposed strict limits on her freedom.
We're allowed to stereotype now?
José would leave the apartment for months, and one night was arrested for drunk driving and deported back to Mexico. Within a few weeks, however, he was back, and began beating her again.
It wasn’t long before he was arrested again for drinking. She visited him in jail, a few weeks before he was to be deported for the second time.
She began the arduous process of moving on, and when José, who had since moved to Oregon, would call, her family would hang up the phone.
So this wife beating, drunk driving, twice deported illegal alien moved to Oregon. He's breeding in Kansas but for some reason chose Oregon for his home. Is it because he could get help from DHS at the "Carousel of information?"
José moved back to Kansas City, was deported again, and returned once more, this time to Kansas City.
I think that I lost track of how many times this criminal was deported. This story is written as a public interest/sob story but it really illustrates what's wrong with our immigration system and open border.
Our government can't keep this guy out. If he decides to kill his wife then he will be able to do it. Deport him, he comes right back.
The question is not should we build a wall or can we build a wall but rather how tall should we make it and should it incorporate land mines?
