I am good talking about laws. And I have always said, criminals are not welcome into my family. Nor my neighborhood. They are not by any chance my admiration. I am for law, so, if you want law, you need to respect the court’s decision.
I was an illegal for about 1 year. I came the same way the third lady in the white house came, with a tourist visa and I worked with that tourist visa, same as she did. But instead of working a dark “job”, I gave, or should I say risked by life for this country in something I can’t reveal when I wasn’t even owning a SS#, which I got from the same…well, “whoever department” before I even got a work permit. Did I get paid for my sacrifice?
No! I got the boot instead, it is humiliating when many people see you walking the Miami airport with shackles on your wrists, even when at the interrogation, which is very cruel, you tell them you are leaving. I can’t tell you the vulgarity that was used to scare me into signing for a voluntarily departure instead of applying for asylum, even men would be “what the hell?”.
But I promised the interrogating officer I would return illegally, and he said “why not”, it’s your skin. So, I crossed the border again, without any papers. For 20 years, 19 of them with a work permit I stayed sober and clean, and paid my taxes. I got my chance to get vindicated in court. The system wanted me gone, I showed them what ingenuity and the use of the law means, I beat them in court, on their on turf. I studied the immigration laws, I stayed on top of any topics, until the Chaly Garcia case came about. That was my salvation. Everything felt in place since. And you don’t need an Einstein at your side to beat the system.
I don’t thank the friends who helped me to cross the border that much, something so easy at that time. I thank that immigration officer (being discriminatory but he was a…white guy) watching me cross the beach somewhere, an officer that 2 feet away could have grabbed me and asked me why I was crossing that border. Thanks to him, and of course, those who helped me make it to L.A. I got two wonderful kids, an incredible wife and an kept myself being an honest person, well, if you happen to know, lately, I am defrauding people with my IULs, but that’s nothing.
Just remember, don’t get emotional…Justice has prevailed. The court system is playing its role. The verdict may not be of your likeness, but that’s what you get if you think about it. We have rape cases here in CA, Stanford case, the guy walked Scott free. The judge giving that verdict has people signing petitions to send him packing home. I signed that petition.
Don’t get emotional. Follow the advise of somebody on this forum. You have read him, come on! Some data reading will apease you. Try!
