Shocker: Chicago Tribune supports U.S. laws

Chicago's knockoff of the WAPOLATNYT offers the editorial "Elvira Arellano and the law" about the illegal alien who was ordered to report to DHS to be deported but instead took refuge in a church. It ends with:
...she has benefited from some extraordinary political support, which few illegal immigrants get to enjoy. She won the help of members of the Illinois congressional delegation, who rallied around her because her 7-year-old son, Saul, a U.S. citizen, has ADHD and other health problems. She has been granted three stays of deportation since 2003. U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) sent a letter to President Bush on Wednesday asking that Arellano be granted yet another stay.In related news: "Chicago Tribune Silent on Illegal Immigration Activist's History". The activist in question is the pastor of the church, Walter "Slim" Coleman.
But Sen. Dick Durbin, Sen. Barack Obama and others have said there is nothing more they can do for her...
...Many illegal immigrants face the same situation as Arellano. Few get the breaks she has received in the last few years. They are all subject to U.S. law, as is Arellano.
It is time for her to abide by that law.
