From Suntimes.com: "Winning a Chevrolet Corvette is the stuff of dreams...[Maribel Nava Alvarez] "...said officials with local radio station La Ley 107.9 FM and its parent company, Spanish Broadcasting System, withheld the gray sports car she won in a La Ley raffle when they discovered she was an undocumented resident. What's worse, she said, is that an SBS attorney allegedly threatened to alert authorities of her immigration status once he learned she intended to take her battle to court." Full Story.
