Tamale Lady Stays in U.S., Mitt Romney Sent Packing

Mitt_Romney_by_Gage_Skidmore_6

I remain committed to ending 2012 on a positive note. 

Last summer, immigrant Juana Reyes-Hernandez, known as the "tamale lady" was picked up for selling tamales outside a Walmart in Sacramento and was facing removal from the United StatesAs the year ends, the good news is that the press surrounding the case favored Juana, who had lived in the United States for many years without incident and was selling tamales to pay her rent and support her two U.S. citizen children.  The immigration court closed her removal case.  Juana remains in the United States with her children, taking private orders for her tamales and does not sell them in front of local business.
