They are here illegally. They have made public statements to that effect. Now when will law enforcement do its duty and arrest these illegals and turn them over for deportation?
Three young women who came to this country as children and are now illegal immigrants are staging a hunger strike in an attempt to convince U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan to back a bill that could make them legal residents.
The women – Rosario Lopez, 25, Viridiana Martinez, 23, and Loida Silva, 22 – have set up tents across the street from the state legislative building in downtown Raleigh and subsisted on water, Pedialtye and Gatorade since June 14.
They have lost 23 pounds collectively and said they're growing weaker by the day but plan on continuing the hunger strike and camping out in the impromptu protest site they've secured near the state Legislature.
"If we don't do it, no one else is going to," Silva said in an earlier interview about the hunger strike. "Our parents broke the law, we didn't have a say in that."
Ms. Silva, you are 22-years-old. You are aware of your immigration status, and presumably have been since your 18th birthday. You have CHOSEN TO STAY in the United States illegally since that time -- so you can quit spewing la miedra del torro about not having a say regarding your situation. The same border that your family crossed to come here is equally porous headed south, so hasta la vista, baby.
