"Citizen" Saul Arellano, Luis Gutierrez give letter to Bush staffer outside WH gates
As previously discussed, Saul Arellano - seven-year-old son of holed-up-in-a-Chicago-church after ordered to appear to be deported Elvira Arellano - flew to Washington to try to speak to president Bush. He was assisted by the group Centro Sin Fronteras as well as a supposed American representative, Luis Gutierrez.
Thankfully - or maybe not so thankfully - they gave Saul's handwritten plea "to a White House staffer outside the gates". While it's good to keep "Americans" like Gutierrez as far from the White House as possible, a photo op with Bush would have been priceless. Before handing off the letter, SA was a guest at a Hispanic Congressional Caucus Institute function.
The letter has one of the leading arguments against the "guest" worker programs Bush supports:
"I want you to know that there are more than 3 million children like me. We are U.S. citizens but the government is taking away our mothers and fathers."
As has been pointed out here many times, our "guests" would have children, and that would make it very difficult to send them home if they refuse to go back.
