Extended Family

Remember Eunice Lopez, 26 who was arrested for marrying somewhere between 9 and 17 times? She and some of her relatives are in the news again.

At a tally of 29, collecting extra spouses is a family affair.

That's what prosecutors say of the Rodriguez clan -- this week three members were charged with bigamy. A fourth was charged last year. One by one, the family has been marrying undocumented immigrants for cash, authorities say.

Eurice Rodriguez, 46, who entered three marriages without ever divorcing her first husband, was arrested this week and posted bond Tuesday.

Her daughter, Eunice Lopez, 26, was arrested last year on nine counts of the same, while her boyfriend was slapped with three counts one month later.Lopez.jpg

Eurice Rodriguez's brother, Jesus Ruben Rodriguez, 38, illegally married five times, according to the Miami-Dade state attorney's office.

But their sister, Loida Rodriguez, 42, racked up the most -- she illegally tied the knot 12 times, according to prosecutors.

The family members, Cuban natives, are legal U.S. residents. Authorities believe they have been marrying undocumented migrants for money to help them earn legal U.S. residency.

Since they're Cuban, the Lopezs or Rodruiguezs will not face the possibility of deportation. I suggest we lock them all up with the mother-in-laws of those men or women they married. Am I cruel?

At the core of all successf... (Below threshold)
tyree:

At the core of all successful societies is the assumption that most of the people will obey the law without being forced to obey it. The society as a whole cannot bear the cost of watching everyone, all the time. Many elements in our society, however, have the opinion that certain things are not "wrong" even if they are illegal. If they can get away with something, it is a victimless crime. Communities all across America have been hurt by this shift in thinking. The burden that illegal aliens place on society is onerous, costly and permanent. And the politicians don't care. And the illegal aliens don't care. The the people who profit from this criminal activity don't care. So millions of people have their lives permanently disrupted and degraded, and no one cares about them because illegal immigration is "good" for some people, even though it is illegal.
I hardly go through a day where I don't feel a great sadness for the community I lost. It has now been 2 years since I heard people walking down my street speaking English. The fact that that change was done illegally makes all the difference to me, but it doesn't seem to bother a lot of other people.
I guess the Rodriguez clan is just "doing the job that Americans won't do" or something.

There's gotta be a connection to a government subsidy or welfare program here.

These skanks are not doing this because they were were in love yesterday, overwhelmed by emotion today.
