Another Immigrant Deportation Sob Story Falls Apart

Since we're going to be getting a lot of these, might as well start on this immigrant sob story from NBC News that suggests any rule of law in the U.S. is cruel and unusual punishment. 
Grandmother Deported for Voter Fraud Leaves U.S. in Tears The woman in question, from Peru, was a legal immigrant, but used that privilege to illegally cast ballots in Illinois and then fought a ten-year battle in courts to shield herself from any consequences.
Everything in her story is designed to tug at the heartstrings, whip up public sympathy, and support Democrats who favor non-citizen voting. Everything else in that story evades the hard questions that need to be asked around the serious problem of voter fraud that NBC News is dismissing.
The headline alone gets the ball rolling: Grandmother. Tears.
She's not much of what a typical grandmother, given that she looks about 40 or so in her pictures. Somehow the media either never thought to ask the single mom of three, or else declined to write that she refused to give her age, or most likely, collaborated with her to keep her age off the story in a bid to keep that title of 'grandmother' live. Why was she a single mom, anyhow, given that her fundraising page makes such big claims to 'keeping families together'? Earlier news reports said she married her way into the U.S. and acquired legal residency status from that, while NBC says she had three kids in Peru meaning another man was in the picture there previously. And somehow the love with the American didn't last, which a real reporter might raise questions of marriage green card fraud, too, but the question goes unasked. As for tears, you'd think she'd be all cried out after a ten-year court battle, instead of suddenly surprised by bad news. In any case, what she did was a crime - she disenfranchised an American citizen's ballot by cancelling it out with her own illegal votes. Had she gone to the pokey for check-writing fraud or Medicaid scams, would she have any fewer tears? Somehow NBC News would have you think we should forget forever about the integrity of our elections because it might make some "grandmother" cry.
