SAN FRANCISCO The much-publicized saga of Highland Hospital nurse Maria Sanchez and her husband Eusebio, who for the last 15 years had sought to obtain green cards and remain in the U.S. legally, ended with hugs and tears Wednesday night before the undocumented couple boarded a flight bound for their native Mexico.
They had booked their flight Tuesday after receiving word that a final attempt to delay their deportation had been denied by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The couple is now prohibited from returning to the U.S. for a decade, when they can begin the process all over again, according to federal law.
Today I am going to leave, as I promised to do, Maria Sanchez calmly told reporters and photographers gathered near a United Airlines check-in counter at San Francisco International Airport after the family arrived around 9:15 p.m. But its hard to leave my kids behind.
The couple who had spent the last week hoping for the best but preparing for the worst took their 12-year-old American-born son with them to Mexico.
But their three daughters 16-year-old Elizabeth, 21-year-old Melin and 23-year-old Vianney will stay in Oakland to care for one another in the home their parents managed to finally buy last year. Vianney is a graduate of UC Santa Cruz, and Melin will graduate from the school next spring.

There are ways to change status. 60% of all green cards are issued to people already here under change of status. I won’t go into them here, but it is a thriving business for these leeches called immigration lawyers. If it were up to me, there would be very few issued in that manner.
Her history of working here illegally will doom her chances along with possible other criminal violations.
That’s the spirit!
the children are illegal aliens the children of illegal aliens
they are not American citizens...they are not automatic American citizens...
under the Constitution, they do not qualify...their own parents fault...
Even Mexico claims them as Mexican citizens...
Under current US law (8 U.S.C. § 1401), they are American citizens at birth. It is called birthright citizenship. If they present their US birth certificate, they will receive a US passport. That is the reality on the ground under the laws of this country.
There is NO birthright citizenship!
LOL. Maybe not in the fantasy world that you live in, but sadly, birthright citizenship is the law of the land in the United States of America.
My cousin is a patient care technician. She makes squat. That tells me we’ve been paying for their kids all along.
Key word, “illegal”,
If you came here illegally, get the hell out or be thrown the hell out.
Get in line and come, Legally.
Songs of whoa are crappola.
