When Anna Salazar was first dating her husband, Roberto, it didn't occur to her to ask his immigration status.In this particular case, the intro is followed with a series of misleading statements:
Sensenbrenner's bill [HR4437] would build 700 miles of fencing along the border and have Anna Salazar, too, charged with an aggravated felony -- "harboring" her undocumented husband. She could face more than a year in prison, loss of her children to foster care during that time and forfeiture of her assets.It sounds so ominous, doesn't it? Almost as if that evil Sensenbrenner person would come to their home and personally arrest her.
By contrast, a bill pending in the Senate would create a path to legal residency for most of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the United StatesAnd, it would also lead to many more similar cases, as millions upon millions of new illegal aliens came here to take advantage of their amnesty.
"Roberto's case is an example of how some people luck in and some people luck out," said his pro bono attorney, Anita Sinha of the International Institute of the East Bay. "A lot of it has to do with arbitrary deadlines."A google search of her name is like entering into a carnival maze of acronyms. She's identified here as a member of the National Immigration Law Center (NILC, site). Since that time she's joined the International Institute of the East Bay (IIEB,site). On this 2003 page she's identified as represented the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NIRP, site). And, in 2005 she was a candidate for the board of the SF chapter of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG).
