Hey guys, normally I don't do this, but all the googling and researching has given me migraines... Here's the problem: a good friend of mine is living at home. Her mother has a housekeeper who is anything but a legal citizen. Said housekeeper has a nasty habit of "losing" my friend's stuff (and now her sister's belongings too). The mother thinks of the housekeeper as family and actually treats her better than either of her daughters. My friend is suffering, her sister is suffering, and her sister's two children are suffering. Here's where things get a BIT dicey. The sister is currently going through a NASTY divorce (the guy was a complete asshat to her, but decent to the kids.. anyway). Is there anyway that having an illegal immigrant could be used against her in the divorce? Also, if the housekeeper were to be arrested and deported due to an anonymous tip, what are the ramifications that could happen to the family?
