Raped & deported?

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/...et-her-n764116

What a quandary. It can't be right that illegal immigrants should be afraid in any way, shape or form from prosecuting people that have done them wrong while in the United States... though I don't know that illegal immigrants should just be arbitrarily rewarded with free-and-clear citizenship by virtue of their getting raped here (where they're not even legally supposed to be), either. This is a tough one.

I'd say, jeeze... the Law/immigration looks the other way the entire time the case is going on and is concluded, right? The next time she runs a red light or tries to show a fake/purchased ID or whatever, however, different story.

Her lawyer told her to go and fight her rapist in private instead. That's just asking for more trouble...

Definetly wrong what happened to her and her rapist should be prosecuted, but the law should be respected no matter what, this isnt a particularly hard decision. She should've never been able to enter the country in the first place unless she did all the proper paperwork.

It's less people coming here without the proper documentation, and more that they stay here after it's expired.

That's arguably worse. At least the guy sneaking over the border isn't being fraudulent.

Arguably worse is right.

People will inevitably choose the path of least resistance.
Come to Boston. Know why the roads don't make sense? It wasn't cows, it was people cutting corners in order to get somewhere faster.

Same thing here.
It's easier to stay here on an expired visa than it is to try and keep up with the paper work, because our system is inefficient, and worse than that: it's expensive.
My ex has three degrees (BA, MA, PhD) and couldn't find a job that would foot the bill of her paperwork, so when her student visa expired she went home.

But no one in power is going to fix it, because currently we've got xenophobic jingoistic yokels driving the bus, and any Immigration Reform package is far too easily spun into "Let'em All In!"

So you get what happened here:
A woman was brutalized and was brave enough to come forward, only to be threatened into silence.

True enough.

The sad part is... what would happen if the rape happened in most parts of Mexico, and she came forward? Probably a whole a lot of nothing. That is, unless she happens to be affiliated with the Los Zetas, Cartel de Golfo, the Tempularios or any one of a number of cartels that've infiltrated pretty much all manners of police... then they might go and cut the guy's head off and dissolve his body into acid on video for her enjoyment. That's assuming, of course, she was and he's not... other way around, she gets the maiming party and acid bath.

Nasty business.

Normally, UPS just puts a slip on my door wondering why I'm not there between 8-5, Monday through Friday.
