A rare hot sun beat down on Tacoma in late August 2011, but Oscar Campos Estrada spent all of his time indoors. By then, Oscar had worn the gray uniform of a Pierce County Jail inmate for nearly four months. But the jail term was the least of his worries. Two decades after he illegally slipped over the U.S. border from Mexico, Oscars life as an illegal immigrant finally had caught up to him. A few months earlier, a Tacoma police officer had stopped Oscar on his drive to work for a cracked windshield. The cop quickly discovered Oscar was driving with a suspended license an offense hed been busted for several times before. Oscar was arrested and booked.

How does someone in the country illegally make $ 14.00 an hour ? The dude has to be using fake or stolen documents .When Oscar went to jail five months earlier, the child support payments that propped up his family halted. Maria-Guadalupe, Oscars estranged 39-year-old wife and mother of his first three children, instantly became the familys wage earner. She took a dietary aides job at an East Tacoma nursing home where her oldest daughter, America, also worked. Nineteen, and four months pregnant, America started contributing part of her own modest paycheck to help support her mom, her brother and her 13-year-old sister, Magali. America also moved out of the familys apartment and in with her boyfriend, Arturo, as a way to ease the familys financial strain. But even with Americas help, Maria-Guadalupe struggled to maintain the familys humble lifestyle. She worked longer hours and into a higher-paying cooks job. But the $1,200 to $1,400 she brought in each month fell far short of covering the familys bills. Maria-Guadalupe canceled satellite TV and phone service first. When the family couldnt pay the power, the utility company shut off electricity. Maria sent her kids to live with her father until she could get the power restored. She also began receiving food stamps to supplement her income.

With that food stamp money, she probably can get some tattos, and get her navel pierced, and on the black market get a cell phone to send images to her disco friends. Keep helping people make these mistakes, WE never learn.
I’ll bet she didn’t give up having her hair and nails done. Those are necessities, it seems.
How are Uncle Omar and Auntie Zeituni doing these days?
Is the “wife” also an illegal?
If so, then get the whole bunch of them out of this country.
On a cold day in January 1992, Oscar and his pregnant girlfriend, Maria-Guadalupe, had just stepped out of a Mexican grocery near McKinley Avenue and East 40th Street, when two agents flashing INS badges converged on them.
Wheres your green card, one of them asked Oscar.
I dont have one, he explained. But Ive applied for one.
I was born in California, Maria-Guadalupe lied, when an agent asked her the same question.INS documents show Oscar signed a document agreeing to return to my home country on the first available transportation. Such offers are usually one-time deals if the person doesnt voluntarily leave, he forfeits any future chance to leave voluntarily.
Oscar said he may have signed something, but didnt really understand what it meant.
I dont remember agreeing to anything like that, he said. I had no idea why they let me go, I was just glad they did.
In the early 1990s, Oscar only knew a petition had been filed for him that could take years to process. He kept working. When tulips disappeared, he picked cabbage, then celery. To continue his employment, he illegally bought a Social Security Card from a legalized Hispanic man and had taxes withheld from his paychecks.
The immigrants with legal status (green cards) help their illegal brethren across the border.
“The dude has to be using fake or stolen documents”
His employer knew he was a wetback. Probably all of the
employees at that cab. shop were illegal. The employer
should be charged as well. People who hire illegal aliens
should be prosecuted in the same way as drug dealers with
all their property being confiscated as ill-gotten gains.
By the way, a good craftsman is worth a lot more than
14.00 an hour but because of these illegal interlopers and
criminal employers, citizens are forced out.
True American craftsmen that have been through a full
apprenticeship are rare. I am disappointed to see
what passes for a Journeyman now days.
Wait until this "legal" hispanic man gets a letter from the IRS wanting to discuss unpaid taxes...
