Gay Texas Mayor Quits Out of His Love for Illegal Immigrant

May 22, 2009

(ChattahBox)— Love is in the air in the small Texas town of San Angelo, but not in the usual way. Popular San Angelo Mayor, 32-years-old J.W. Lown, was just recently reelected to a fourth term, but two weeks later he submitted his resignation letter from an undisclosed location in Mexico.

The reason given; he fell madly in love with a male illegal immigrant from Mexico and he didn’t want to take the oath of office while “aiding and assisting” a person who was illegally in the country.

Many residents of San Angelo were shocked to learn of the reason for Lown’s resignation. But at the same time, one can’t help admiring a man who not only gave up everything for love, but also for his principles.

He refused to promise to uphold the laws of his community when he was actively engaged in breaking them. Because you see, Lown is in Mexico helping his lover obtain a legal visa so they both can return to the United States together.

The name of Lown’s lover is not known. All that’s known about him is that he arrived from Mexico to the United States five years ago to study at Angelo State University. It’s not known whether he had a student visa that ultimately expired.

Immigrant experts predict Lown’s lover will have an uphill battle obtaining a visa to return to the U.S. legally. Once a student visa expires and a person remains in the country illegally, they have to wait from 3 to 10 years before they can obtain another visa.

Lown plans to someday return to San Angelo, if the people will accept him back. He was reelected with an astounding 89 percent of the vote; the people of San Angelo may very well welcome back Lown.
