On a dusty block in Phoenix, 15 years of the Quintana family's possessions are for sale.So in a mere 15 years she popped out 10 kids while here illegally? But we're not supposed to even mention this or we're racist.
Manuela Quintana said that they decided to leave when the Arizona governor signed the new immigration law.
For years, their family thrived with jobs in restaurants and construction, reports CBS News correspondent Kelly Cobiella. Their 10 children were born here and are U.S. citizens. Both she and her husband are undocumented, and currently unemployed.
She said that her biggest fear is being put in jail and having her children taken away from her. Just the thought of moving scares their 12-year-old daughter Graciela.I doubt they all went back home. More likely they fled to California or elsewhere.
"I think it's going to be my worst day," Graciela said.
Two years ago, this park was filled with families every weekend. Arizona was home to more than half a million illegal immigrants. Since then, at least 100,000 have left.
Kyle Kester is the Quintana's landlord - he's lost seven tenants in the past week.Well, sorry, I do.
"I would say on this block alone we have 20 vacancies at least," Kester said. "It's not just illegal immigrants who are affected by this. I was born in the U.S. and it's hurting me now."
Graciela's best friend fled to California with her family Saturday. She didn't get to say good-bye.
Manuela knows she broke the law when she came here 15 years ago. But she doesn’t see herself as a criminal.
Of course, Arizona's loss is Colorado's, uh, gain.
The family packed up before dawn today and headed north to Colorado. Manuela says she's lost hope in this state. She thinks she'll find it again in another.So CBS brings us this heartwrenching tale of some brood sow being "forced" to leave Arizona, but she's not even leaving the country. Let's hope ICE is reading these stories since her phoot is there for all to see.
