As their American-born teenage children noted in their own tearful statements Thursday, García de Rayos and her family have pretty much lived in fear of this day since 2008, when sheriff’s deputies showed up at their home to arrest their mother after a raid on her then-employer revealed that she’d been using a fake social security number. The raid was one of many orchestrated by longtime Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio as a means of rounding up and slapping criminal charges on undocumented workers. García de Rayos pled guilty to criminal impersonation — a low-level felony — and by the time a federal judge deemed Arpaio’s raids unconstitutional in 2015, she’d been branded with a criminal record that would haunt her for years to come.

What do people think, just because it wasn’t a violent crime – it just doesn’t count? This is so ATypical of most bassackwards American thinking and given the most recent estimates of nearly 11 million undocumented (illegal) aliens with most living in NYC, LA, Dallas, and Houston, or Phoenix. That if even 1% of those are criminals, let alone violent – that is 110,000? I bet it should be closer to 10% or 1.1 million divided by the five cities = +/- 200,000 – 250,000 criminals in each of these cities.
That is resources being used that 11 million, Veterans, Families with kids, homeless or starving Americans could be using. Add in the families given citizenship by birth and the numbers quadruple (four member family).
