A 22-year old illegal alien, frustrated with the inability to legally start the immigration process, showed up at ICE headquarters in Omaha, Neb. in an attempt to get arrested so she could get in the system, and on the road to amnesty.
A Schuyler woman who has lived in the United States for 17 years and tried to get arrested in hopes of getting on the road to American citizenship said immigration agents wouldn’t take her in.
Jazmin Marino’s attorney, Bassel El-Kasaby of Omaha, said he felt that given her background, she had to get creative in order to get on track to naturalization. He said once Marino is arrested and on record, the process of citizenship can begin. After the attempt was unsuccessful, he’s announced plans to file a lawsuit.
My guess? If she returned to her home country she would be welcomed into the offices at the United States Embassy. She could fill out the paperwork and go through the legal process just like everyone else who wants to come to America and live and work here legally.
