— lucky deaf immigrant

Manuel Ordonez-Quino, a deaf immigrant, is a lucky
person. He was sitting in his cell in El Paso, TX,
awaiting deportation to Guatemala. He reportedly
agreed to leave USA. The immigration attorneys
argued that he did not understand English, and
the only language he knew was Quiché, a language
spoken in Spanish-speaking Guatamela. He could
not understand the charges in English and just
nodded his head. The immigration officials
agreed and allowed him to stay in USA!

— a 7 Up TV commercial

Pretty soon, but not sure when, a 7 Up TV commercial
will feature deaf people enjoying the music at a
dance scene. The commercial shoot will be taking
place next week. So, if you catch a 7 Up commercial,
be on the alert.
