Sometimes we forget that the fight hits close to home.
State Sen. Curt Thompson's wife, Sascha Herrera, turned herself in to federal immigration officials on Tuesday.
The wife of the Norcross Democrat has been under a deportation order and her surrender today had been expected.
On the way in, Herrera said she felt nervous.
“I feel I'm doing the right thing,” she said. “I'm just going to do what I need to, the legal way.”
Thompson said he hoped his wife would be allowed to go home after meeting with immigration officials.
“Today is just the start of the process,” he said.
According to the senator, his wife was the victim of a “notario,” a lawyer in Latin America who did not do everything properly, though he claimed proficiency at the task.
