Esther Cepeda in the Sun Times
In the process she made life more difficult for legal immigrants and U.S.-born Hispanics who will continue to endure the wrath of a country that's disgusted that there seem to be one set of laws for "us," and a more lenient set for the 12million "them" who toil here for next to nothing at the cordial invitation of businesses and bargain-shoppers everywhere.
Though she only learned a rudimentary amount of English while in sanctuary -- enough to deliver a brilliantly written speech I'd bet my life she didn't compose -- her message was crystal clear. Maybe not with her words, but with her actions Arellano did in fact say, "Catch me if you dare."
Now that Immigration and Customs Enforcement called her bluff I can be clear, too: Adios and good riddance.
