Denver Moonbats Pray For Elvira Arellano

"We should resist the rhetoric that drives us apart," said one moonbat with the American Friends Service Committee. But the moonbats weren't alone:
Local politicians attended the event, including past Denver Manager of Safety Butch Montoya . . .
Instead of pandering to illegal immigrant communities and their supporters, politicians should pay more attention to the citizens that elected them and pay their salaries.

Just a thought.

Even columnist Ruben Navarrette thinks this is a "slam-dunk" case, and has little sympathy for Arellano:
As the son of a cop, I'd call this case a slam-dunk. Arellano entered the country illegally a decade ago, was deported, re-entered illegally, and then defied a second deportation order by holing up for months in a Chicago church. Then she took an ego trip by going on a national tour in support of illegal immigrants. Finally, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) nabbed her in Los Angeles. Now her tour is canceled, and she is in Tijuana.

Good. It's a shame that Arellano will be separated from her 8-year-old son, Saulito, who was born in the U.S. and is thus a citizen. But the pain is her doing. She knew the risks and yet she put her son's welfare in jeopardy, not just by being an illegal immigrant but a conspicuous one at that.
