PHOENIX (KSAZ) – Ruth Alvarez says breast cancer has been her personal prison; she is now facing the disease behind bars.
Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Alvarez– an undocumented immigrant– in early April for working with a false identification. She says her arrest comes just a few weeks away from her planned mastectomy scheduled for April 23rd. Alvarez is asking to be release so she can undergo the surgery with her family by her side.
“To go through breast cancer is already hard, it’s so hard to go through treatments seeing how your whole body, your whole life kinda change,” said Alvarez.
MCSO first arrested Alvarez in September 2013 for allegedly working with a false ID and turned her over to Immigrations & Customs Enforcement. Alvarez’ lawyer says ICE released her so she could get chemotherapy. Now she is back in jail, facing the same charges from the Maricopa County Attorney.
“I know it was wrong, but at the time I only used it to get a job,” said Alvarez.
Besides knowingly entering the U.S. illegally: She knew stealing someone else’s identity was wrong too, but…she only ruined a U.S. citizen’s life to get a job. Oh, ok. No problemo then. I’m sure the citizen’s life she ruined is ok that she only did it to get a job.
And guess who is paying for all the illegal alien identity thief’s medical care? Why yes, we are!
