Illegal Immigrant Tells CNN She Was Inspired to Cross Border by Obama Amnesty

An illegal-immigrant woman at a border bus stop in Mission, Texas, told CNN that she was inspired to cross into the United States now because of the impending amnesty being offered by President Obama.

“Did the possibility of immigration reform inspire you to come now?” CNN’s Alina Machado asked the Central American migrant waiting for a bus ticket on Thursday.

“Yes, that’s right,” the woman said. “That inspired us.”

“Now?” the reporter pressed.

“Yes, now,” the woman replied.
