If you are a victim of domestic violence and call the cops to get a restraining order on your spouse, you can rest assured that you will end up in deportation proceedings, along with your children. This is the 14 year old and the mom that ICE is deporting TONIGHT at 9 PM EST while Obama and Senator Menendez stand on the sidelines, contrary to statutory exceptions such as VAWA. So much for prosecutorial discretion.
I think my problem with this is that even though it’s domestic violence, and it is bad, you’re here illegally. I know what it’s like to be the victim. I just wouldn’t expect to go to another country, call the cops, and tell them that my husband hit me and that I’m not a citizen of this country, and expect to stay. I know they’d ship my ass right back to the USA. It’s just the way it is. The proper channels could have saved people a lot of trouble.
