Casino Jackpot Winner Deported To Mexico

Casino Jackpot Winner Deported To Mexico A jackpot winner has found herself deported back to Mexico after winning $1,200 at the Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona. Unfortunately for her, identification has to be produced in order to claim winnings over $1,200 and after showing what the casino deemed to be a suspicious ID, the Border Patrol then became involved and deported her back to her native country.
Following the bizarre incident the casino was keen to distance itself from what took place and said that although a casino worker contacted Pascua police for verification of the suspicious ID, nobody from the Casino Del Sol actually contacted federal authorities. After all, the casino tries to cater to people from both sides of the border and alienating its Mexican visitors would prove hazardous for its business. As Casino Del Sol CEO, Wendell Long explains:
“The Sonoran customer is very important to us. It’s a large part of our business, and we do a lot of things to promote that.”
Meanwhile, Zamira Osorio, the daughter of the deported woman, was also detained along with her mother but was later released because of The Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act (DREAM). As explained on, the act was created to help children brought to the US by undocumented parents who are now graduating from High School to find a path to citizenship and be allowed to continue their education. Speaking about the deportation of her mother Zamira Osorio commented: “My family and I feel devastated about it. We’ve been through a lot. This can happen to anybody who goes and plays at the casino.”
