    A Mexican Senate committee passed a measure Wednesday urging President Felipe Calderon to send a diplomatic note to the United States protesting the deportation of an illegal migrant who took refuge in a Chicago church for a year.
    The committee also approved a scholarship to help her 8-year-old U.S.-born son, Saul, who is an American citizen and stayed in the United States.
    Elvira Arellano, 32, became an activist and a national symbol for illegal immigrant parents by defying her deportation order and speaking out from her sanctuary in the Adalberto United Methodist Church. She announced last week that she was leaving to try to lobby U.S. lawmakers for immigration reform.
    On Sunday, shortly after she spoke at a rally in a Los Angeles church, she was arrested and deported to Tijuana, across the border from San Diego.
    "We cannot remain quiet in view of this injustice and must ask for firm action from our authorities," Mexican Sen. Humberto Zazue said.

    He accused the United States of violating international deportation accords by denying her access to the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles.
    Arellano, who was at the committee's session, said Saul is in Chicago in the care of his godmother and will attend a Sept. 12 rally for immigration reform in Washington. She said she would help organize a rally in Tijuana that same day to demand Mexican authorities do more to protect migrants.
    "For me it is very important that our government take a strong stand to defend all of us who decide to migrate to another country," she said.

    She stole a S/S number, tough. Deny them papers. Don't hire them. Don't hire the contractor who does. Anyway they are needed in their country now to clean up and rebuild. [ what goes around, comes around] The mexican govt are communists. Look at the subprime markets. Illegal ms 13 gang members kill three americans, nuuf said. Johnny sutton is a traitor. The SPP has been approved by the traitors of America, Canada, and Mexico. She wants her kid, send him back. We did it with the little Cuban boy.

    I really was hoping that the kid would stay and the whiner would repatriate a few dollars. Well, next best thing looks to be happening, the kid is headed south. I'm sorry for him, it wasn't his fault she spread her knees. Like it or not, he is/was legal, and the "church" that gave his momma sanctuary should cough up the cost to raise him, and I don't care which side of the border said raising takes place.
