Leave this mom alone

According to NBC 5 reports, there's a 50-year-old mother of four from Melrose Park that faces deportation. An IRS audit revealed that Teresa Figueroa purchased a fake Social Security card so she could work. Her hearing on April 29 will determine if she'll be deported or not. A group of people are trying to enlist the support of U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel and, on Wednesday, the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights held a prayer vigil.

I can understand the courts deporting a murderer...but not a mother. What the heck is wrong with the system?
