Dear Editor:
I read with amusement the letter to the Editor sent in by Elise Hines concerning her husband's deportation, her praise for three ILW.COM referred lawyers, and her obvious contempt for other lawyers and the system of American law in general. At first I thought this story was a joke. But the only joke appears to be Ms. Hines' naive expectation that justice is truly blind and that justice ignores the law. Regardless of what immigration lawyers who work for free and who do not have case responsibility (Monday morning quarterbacks), I believe Ms. Hines should just accept the fact that her beloved husband is a liar, a cheat, a fraud and a con man. Imagine, with a phony token in Las Vegas casino, trying to get rich quick on someone else's "nickel". Then, imagine that same person falsifying a birth certificate...then obtaining a Social Security number, holding himself out to be a US citizen, and . . . (drumroll) . . . voting. Does not Ms. Hines know that this in and of itself is ground for deportation under the laws of the United States of America, which her husband should have been following and not breaking? Ms. Hines says she feels "violated and victimized", but it is the US, its citizens and every foreign national that has followed US immigration law to obtain their right to remain in the USA who are the victim of her husband's deceit and utter contempt for all aspects of law and right. Ms. Hines' husband can "consider" himself an American all he wants, but I, for one, am happy to see the system finally caught and deported a cheater. It proves that indeed there is sometimes, somewhere, such a thing as justice.
