Goodbye & Good Luck

An Oxnard, CA, couple are deported to their native country of Mexico. They had been in the U.S. illegally for 20 years. In that time, they managed to buy a home and begat four children. The Nunez family are returning to Guadalajara; that is the parents are returning. The children were born in the U.S. and have never been to Mexico. It seems that the Nunez family ignored deportation orders and then la migra, immigration authorities, came knocking on the door.

It appears that the Nunez family is an examples of illegal immigrants who managed to make a better life for themselves for 20 years without breaking any more laws other than the initial immigration laws. They may be industrious immigrants who could be helpful to this country. Too bad they came illegally.

So, goodbye and good luck to the Nunez family. Their deportation is justice delayed, but justice nevertheless.
