That's sad. It happened once to a person I knew. She had no idea she was here illegally, since she had been here since she was a year old. She didn't speak Russian, but one traffic ticket later and she had to go to Moscow. Six months and hell later she made it back home.

As expected, the comments to that story on the Arizona Daily Star are full of hate-mongering trash.

This tragic story illustrates the injustice of current immigration law in the US, and the evil of criminalizing something that causes no actual harm to person or property. All this poor woman needs is the imprimatur of the government in order to continue the life she's as she's done almost all her existence. Immigration hawks tend to be folks that decry government's involvement in the lives of people. But they won't extend this principle to people unless they have the government's approval. Even if, as in this case, the government's approval won't change the woman one way or another. She'll be the same person, pretty much indistinguishable from any other American.

They tend to decry government involvement when it effects their lives but if it's someone like this or god forbid they're gay, they're all for it. This is really sad. We need to make it easier for people to find pathways to citizenship not harder. Deporting her would be a terrible thing even if Mexico was more stable. This is her home.

Playing With AI-Generated “Art”I haven't really explored NightCafe's free online AI Art Generator (creator.nightcafe.studio) tool yet. I have only done some preliminary tinkering around with it but, I have to say, I'm more impressed with the results than I anticipated considering how little ...

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
