Ana Calixto: When Nativism Trumps Domestic Violence

Injustices infuriate me. This is one of them.
Ana Calixto is a legal immigrant, who was divorcing her abusive husband. Her case has descended into a special hell, where she now has to appeal the dismissal of an Order of Protection, due to the nativism of a particular Blount County Judge. First, let me get you up to speed on the case, as it has been reported.

Last month, a woman appeared before Blount County (TN) Circuit Court Judge W. Dale Young for an Order of Protection against her abusive husband. but the case took a very nasty turn that day, when Judge Young asked the immigration status of this woman, told her to get out of the country and leave her children here.
