To Deport Or Not To Deport: Why Is There A Question?

ABC reports on the plight of one Yaderlin Jimenez. Yaderlin illegally entered America from the Dominican Republic in 2001. She married Alex Jimenez in 2004. Alex petitioned Big Brother to give his wife a green card which, unfortunately, brought her to the attention of the hostile eye of Sauron.

Why does the story of Yaderlin deserve any more attention than hundreds of others facing deportation, separation from children and families and uncertain futures in a land thousands of miles from home? Because Alex is one of the two soldiers whose unit was attacked and is now missing in Iraq. A third member of his unit was also captured and later found dead near the Tigris river.

That's right... the government is working to deport the wife of a soldier missing in Iraq. It would be bad enough if the couple were just dealing with Alex being in Iraq and having to go through this domestic nightmare. Can you imagine our soldiers having to worry about dodging IED's in the broiling heat surrounded by misery and death on a biblical scale... and having to worry and fret about your wife's immigration status. I wonder how many soldiers have been killed or wounded from being all distracted by thoughts on legal proceedings at home, rather than concentrating on surviving the hell hole they find themselves in.

Frankly, it is preposterous! Any spouse of a member of the U.S. military should be automatically given full citizenship, out of hand, end of story. And at the ceremony they should be thanked for contributing to this nation with a loved one in uniform. Give Yaderlin a freaking medal, not a court date... Lets hear the right wing freaky koolaid drinkers try to raise hell about that!

Or, at the very least...they should just drop the whole matter, give here a green card. The publicity alone would be worth it. Appreciative and magnanimous? Or heartless and cruel? 'Course such subtleties are lost on Bu$hCo.
I'm sure if she was joining up the service, the whole matter would be dropped. That's what the whole immigration thing is about:flooding the labor pool (and depressing wages) and finding a new source of soldiers willing to die fer big oil, all while playing on the sympathies of liberal guilt.
They are freaky, and they drink great long draughts of the Kool-Aid... abandoning reason in the process... so they will find ways to moan and lament about things that are NOT things to moan and lament about, JUST BECAUSE.
Oh p-lease! People who join the military for their love for their fellow citizens, should spend a night in [insert large city], and see how much people care about those who "defend" (attack others) them.

It's all about the money, me thinks.
