    Sen. Bob Casey, a Democrat from Pennsylvania, took to Twitter to try to stop the deportation, which he said could “very likely lead to their death.” The woman claims to have fled Honduras after she witnessed the murder of her cousin and became the target of gangs. The mother and son were in federal court on Wednesday seeking special immigrant juvenile status for the boy when the order for their immediate deportation came from Immigration and Customs Enforcement.​

    I laughed a little when I read that. Took to Twitter to stop a deportation? Sounds like he was dedicated.

    Helping their constituents is part of every legislator ' s job. But in representing an undocumented person who doesn't vote on his district, he is to be commended.
