The undocumented student from Mexico whose case has become a lightning rod in the immigration debate had been released on $2,500 bond just a couple hours earlier.
Just a week earlier, she'd been released from a deportation facility in Alabama after being stopped in March for a minor traffic violation.
The sheriff's office said she gave a false address when stopped for that violation, a felony charge that her attorney denies.
he Cobb County Sheriff's Office is one of 71 law enforcement agencies in 26 states that have entered into this partnership program, according to the ICE website.
Labeling the program a "civil rights disaster," Mary Bauer, legal director of the Southern Poverty Law Center, said it "leads to racial profiling, distracts police from looking for real criminals and destroys families."
The American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia called Friday for an end to the program.

I feel for this girl, I do... but I think her justifiable frustration should be directed at the source of her problem - her parents.
I'd be more than happy to have her here. Intelligent, educated people seem to be in short supply in this country...

She didn't have an "invalid driver's license"...she had no license. But good try trying to demonize her even more...implying that she got a counterfeit license. Your not so slick in your attempts at trying to trash the image of this girl.
Edit to correct: No license, not a fake license
Lying on a college application is not a crime...it could get your application thrown out...but it is not a crime. Kids lie on applications all the time about everything from their school activities to their GPA...and if they get caught their application gets tossed. No crime...but again...way to go in trying to demonize this girl.
So I'm sorry...but you failed to try to turn this girl into a criminal.
...and this is exactly why we need amnesty...

I think the all the schools that enroll illegal children should be shut down until they are in compliance.
The only way to stop the problem is at the source.

According to the Federal Laws, it's a felony in all cases. Period. Until the laws change, we need to enforce them across the board. If we begin analyzing when and if, we are going to open ourselves up to all kind of discrimination suits.
To avoid having to make multiple trips to the EPC, please bring the following documents with you when you come to enroll your child(ren).
A. Parent/Guardian’s picture ID.
B. Proof of birth to include birth certificate, passport or official hospital record. If the document does not contain the parent/guardian’s name, additional guardianship verification is required.
C. Two (2) proofs of home address that include the name and address of the parent/guardian. Any two (2) of the following original documents dated within the last 45 days need to be provided:
• One to two (1-2) utility bill(s) from different utility agencies such as PG&E, water, cable or scavenger. No cell hone bills will be accepted.
• Both automobile registration and auto insurance (Count as one (1) proof)
• Homeowner’s or renters insurance policy

There is one application for all applicants for the 2009-10 school year regardless of grade or school choices. Please review the EPC Forms page for a copy of the application form and a description of the steps to completing the application form.
Sign the application form. Applications cannot be processed until they are signed by the parent/guardian. It is very important that the information collected on the enrollment application is accurate. Signing the application form assures SFUSD that information provided is true. Providing false information will render the application invalid and may result in your child being removed from a school if he or she has already been assigned.
