On Wednesday, congressional representatives heard from an asylum-seeking Guatemalan woman whose 2-year-old daughter died shortly after being released from a Texas Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center.
According to Fox News, Yazmin Juárez is suing the federal government over her daughter Mariee’s death after she contracted a serious lung infection while detained.
However, after Juarez’s emotional testimony, a beauty and wellness business owner picked up on something about the mother that a majority of people wouldn’t have noticed.
Carmen Hamerski, a skin care educator and master asthetician, noted in a Facebook post Thursday that Juárez was groomed like a model, donning microbladed eyebrows and acrylic nails.
According to Hamerski, the Guatemalan mother’s beauty treatment is not a cheap one. “Having worked in the Beauty business for a very long time, I can tell that’s an expensive nail job. I’m sorry! America is being taken advantage of. Poor villagers don’t walk around with long nails like that,” she noted.
“In addition, I can recognize microbladed brows in an instant — price: $300-500. Ugh!” Hamerski continued. “Seriously? I’m all for helping legal individuals get a better life, after all, I was one. But I’m not for helping people take advantage of the compassionate hearts of the American people, whom I adore.”
Hamerski has street cred on the topic of migrants, as she is a Spanish-speaking immigrant who came to America from Rosario, Argentina. She did it the legal way.
The Western Journal has reached out to Carmen Hamerski for comment but has not yet received a response. We will update this article if and when we do.
We don’t know Juárez’s full story, but as Hamerski pointed out, most women — let alone someone who came to the United States “in the hope of finding a better life” — aren’t walking around with $500 nail jobs.
The U.S. is a proverbial melting pot for cultures and people from all around the world — but that can all be stripped away if Democrats give illegal aliens the green light to pass through a borderless America.
When ICE works to enforce the law by catching undocumented immigrants around the country, agents have no choice but to send them to overcrowded facilities instead of promptly deporting the individuals.
Ultimately, U.S. citizens and legal immigrants should not stand for an open-border society but continue to advocate for legal immigration.
