Illegals Invited To Leave

Hopefully, they will take the hint

Undocumented workers are in constant fear of sweeps by immigration agents. However, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, will soon give certain immigrants an option to come forward.

“That would be horrible … I don’t think how the people feel, but I think it is horrible,” said Carmen Garcia, who is seeking residency.

There are about 500,000 so-called fugitive aliens who have received deportation orders. If they come forward in August, those illegal immigrants are able to have about 90 days to organize their affairs without upheaval.

“They may own property, they may have vehicles, clearly they may have children in school … Again, this will give them the opportunity to work with ICE, and to close out their affairs, before they comply with the law and return to their native countries,” said Virginia Kice, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  

And, of course, the illegals and their unlawful supporters are upset

Immigrant advocates say sigining any document, including one for voluntary departure, would mean giving up chances of becoming a legal citizen.

“This is not a solution. A real solution would actually allow us to stay in this country, with our families, with our jobs, and actually continue to contribute to the strengthening of our country,” said Angelica Salas, Coalition for Human Immigrant Rights.

Then maybe they should not have broken the law in the first place, what with coming illegally and all.

There is more whining from the advocates in the story too. Check it out.
