And the left-wing press is lying for her. As my readers should know as the Jessica Colotl has been followed closely here, here, and here among other posts. They are trying to portray Colotl as some acculturated victim. But the facts are otherwise.
The Daily Beast by Whitney Joiner January 4, 2012A year ago, Atlanta-based college graduate Jessica Colotl, 22, caused a firestorm when she was told she would be deported to Mexico, a country she’d left as a child. She’s still here—but possibly not for long.Last May Jessica Colotl graduated from Kennesaw State University, a small university outside of Atlanta, with a degree in political science. This May a judge will decide whether she stays in the U.S. or gets shipped off to Mexico—a country she hasn’t seen since she was 10 years old.
But that is not true. As this blog has shown, Jessica Colotl has traveled back to Mexico since she first came here at 10. She claims to have a Mexican driver's license and 10 year olds don't get those, even in Mexico. She also has a Mexican passport. No reason to have one of those unless you have been traveling there. Most illegals get matriculas.
Colotl’s own story began when she was 10. Her Mexican parents crossed the Arizona border late one night with her, her brother, and two sisters. They eventually made their way to Atlanta, where Jessica grew up believing she was an American. By high school, she’d pieced together the truth. Her parents didn’t own a car, saying it was too dangerous. (In Georgia, undocumented immigrants can’t get a driver’s license.) At 15, she wanted an after-school job, but she didn’t have a Social Security card—her father said they were only for the “wealthy.” These moments added up. One night as she watched the evening news, a lightbulb went off: “They were always talking about immigration reform, showing people crossing the border. It dawned on me: I did that,” she says. She never broached the subject with her parents. “They were trying to protect us,” she says. “My parents sacrificed so much trying to give us a better future.”
Unlikely, she owned a car, why didn't her parents? All are illegal. How did they get to work in Metro Atlanta without a car? Impossible in that car-centric city. At 10 years old, you certainly know who you are. She did not start speaking English until age 10. And she thought she was American? Lie. She always knew.
In high school, she was a quiet, conscientious student: she went to the prom, took AP classes, and graduated with a 3.8 GPA. (A 1982 Supreme Court decision found that children in America are entitled to a public education, regardless of their legal status.) To get into college at Kennesaw University, she applied with a nonresidents’ application form used by foreign students, and paid with money saved from her parents’ cleaning jobs. Once she arrived, she helped found the school’s first chapter of the Latina sorority Lambda Theta Alpha.
Oh, she was so American she helped found a chapter of a racist Mexican sorority? And, no, she was paying in-state tuition up until her arrest, then no one has presented proof she started paying out-of-state tuition afterward.
Lie after lie. Of course previous stories said she came here at 7. But who is counting. She still hasn't been deported. And she wants to contribute with a Poly Sci degree? Well, she can't be that bright or she would have a STEM degree. That alone is worthy of deportation.
The answer is a resounding Si Se Puede! Yes, we can deport Jessica Colotl!
