    Why would you "Believe" in something that Trump never said, Trump promised to end DACA and called for mass deportations. Dont worry as Trump has instructed the faithful dont believe what you see or read because its all fake news.

    Except of course that she immigrated illegally. Guy should be deported too, for being exceptionally stupid.

    Well, he is a combat veteran. Can't rule out head trauma with attendant consequences...

    Maybe. If only medicare for vets were better in the US of A, then he might have seen it coming.

    All joking aside though, this article really makes me chuckle. The way the Washington Post takes it for granted that Illegals are just to be accepted and that laws are not to be applied is just outlandish. She decided to break the law, she decided to immigrate illegally, and now she got the consequences for her actions. That's the actual non-story, "The law was applied as it's written." - Buhuhu. Don't be an illegal immigrant, than stuff like that doesn't happen to you - easy.

    The only victims here are the children because their family has been broken apart, but they too are victims to the crime that the mother committed, not victims of the state.

    Spouses of US citizens are entitled to immediate green cards & can apply for citizenship just 3 years later.
    So what happened?

    You do not automatically get a green card upon marrying a US citizen, you do earn the right to apply for one, though. Not every application is approved.

    There is a form if you are married and your spouse is living overseas and you want to bring them to the US to live. There is a form if you want to bring someone to the US and get married in the US (K-1 and that is a temporary visa alowing them to enter the country, need to apply for the greencard after the wedding). I do not know what form, if any, if the spouse is living illegally in the US.

    This certainly wouldn't help her application:

    Bringing a spouse to the US:
    https://www.uscis.gov/family/family...pouses-live-united-states-permanent-residents

    Fiance visa:
    https://www.uscis.gov/family/family-us-citizens/visas-fiancees-us-citizens

    Military section (some rules apply differently in the above situations, but again it says "You may apply for...", not "Your family is automatically issued....")

    https://www.uscis.gov/military

    For illegals, this is from a lawyer website.

    As if the deportarians would actually care whether she's a citizen or has a green card...

    People vote against their own self interests based on emotion, then when logic kicks in later they are confused as to what happened..

    It's almost like the deportarians realize on some level that crossing the US border illegally is a "crime" that harms no one and is literally only a crime because it violates US law...

    Unfortunately there are a lot of law and order types where that is enough of a justification. The irony is that they've probably broken other trivial nonsense laws and justified it by saying it was a stoopid law. ;)

    It shows criminal energy and disadvantages the people who go through the legal process to immigrate.

    I mean, Mexico is not a **** hole country or anything like that, right? You would disagree with Trump on that, right? No need to do an illegal action to leave there just because you hope for an economic advantage.

    That is all the response this post merits.

    The adjustment of status has some pretty non-negotiable hoops to jump through if they're here legally but temporarily at time of marriage. They aren't insurmountable, but they also are not free. Complete with steps like tracking down random rednecks you know to write signed and sealed letters testifying to the bona fide nature of the marriage. Didn't look like a riotous good time, but was navigable.

    My guess is he didn't fill out the paperwork or pay the money so the fault partially falls on them.

    Yeah, and the US border bureaucracy makes it almost impossible to get accepted for asylum.

    You mean people who actually have the luxury of being able to wait for our joke of an immigration bureaucracy to process them?

    And that's somehow the US's problem because...?

    And? I don't believe any country should be obligated to take in refugees. If a country wants to take in refugees then good on them, but a country that turns them away shouldn't be made into an international pariah for doing so.

    You say this as if emigrating to another country is some inherent human right. It's not. So if we set an immigration policy that makes it extremely difficult for people to get in, that's our right as a sovereign nation.
