If you are here illegally, you should never further press your luck and lie to law enforcement.
Jessica Coloti, a “poster child” for illegal immigrants did just that and even though she’s been a “media darling” for their pro-illegal agenda, she’s on track to get deported.
Being protected under the DACA doesn’t give any sort of protected legal status but makes them less of a priority for enforcement. The low priority status can be revoked at any time but it will particularly be taken away from people who commit crimes.
Coloti admitted she lied to law enforcement, which is a felony.
CBS46 Atlanta reports:
Immigration and Customs enforcement officials said a former Kennesaw State student who was formerly protected as a dreamer had her protection revoked because she deceived law enforcement.
Jessica Colotl, a 29-year-old Mexican national in the country illegally, was formerly protected under an Obama-era program called the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order. ICE said she lost that protection when she confessed to a felony charge.
“Colotl, an unlawfully present Mexican national, admitted guilt to a felony charge in August 2011 of making a false statement to law enforcement in Cobb County,” Bryan Cox with ICE said.
Cox said that although Colotl was allowed to enter a diversionary program by police in Cobb County, federal law considers her admission of guilt a felony conviction.
Colotl’s attorney, Charles Kuck, disputes that. He said she complied with the terms of pretrial diversion, meaning she does not have a felony conviction.
Her DACA status was terminated on May 3. The next day, a government lawyer asked an immigration judge to issue a deportation order.
Jessica Colotl was the face of the young illegal immigrant in metro Atlanta during the Obama administration.
Here is a report about Jessica back in 2013 during the Obama era.
