Alex Jiménez, a 25 yo Dominican-American soldier, went missing in Iraq on May 12th. His dogtags have been found, but he hasn’t yet. Meanwhile, his wife could be deported. She came illegally to the US in 2001, married Jiménez in 2004 and he was in the process of requesting a Green Card for her. However, that alerted the authorities to her illegal entry and a deportation procedure was started against her.
Personally, I found horrible the idea of deporting the wife of a soldier who is fighting for the US – much less one who is probably dying for this country.
