My daughter recently married her hispanic illegal American instead of waiting the planned two years. They started dating in high school and have dated 6 years. Her husband was brought to America in 5th grade. Our small town recently had an immigration raid and his dad was picked up. He was scouted out with binoculars and stopped at the edge of town where he was pulled from his vehicle and thrown to the ground and THEN asked for papers. He was then taken to a house where they made him give them his cash. He has a court date in January. Because of this they decided to wed now and start the process. It could be 2 years before he gets a green card and has protection and up to 4 years before he is a citizen. This young newly wed couple lives in constant fear of immigration.
