BRADENTON, Florida – On Monday, migrant worker Rosa Sirilo-Francisco was at the Hillsborough County Health Department with her 2-month-old daughter Sandra Cruz-Francisco for a routine checkup. She was approached by a woman, 43-year-old Amalia Tabata Pereira, who informed her that she was an immigration official and that they were at their home waiting to deport them to Mexico. If Sandra was handed over, Amalia told Sirilo-Francisco, she could stay in the United States.

Sirilo-Francisco left the clinic with Amalia and they rode to a nearby Sweetbay Supermarket, where Amalia informed the mother that she would help her avoid deportation. This would involve Amalia taking Sanda to Miami and then giving the girl back at 8 a.m. Thursday. Siril0-Francisco believed Amalia and handed her baby over to a stranger. When Sirilo-Francisco told a relative in Georgia what had happened, that person informed her that while our government may be a bit fucked up in some areas, it isn’t THAT fucked up. Sandra was then reported missing and an Amber Alert issued.

10 hours later, Amalia turned the baby over to Manatee County Sheriff’s Department, unharmed. She met officials at a strip mall in Bradenton after calling a tip line anonymously. She is now in jail on a 75,000 bond facing child custody, kidnapping, false imprisonment and child abuse charges. Her husband is Jose Tabata, 20, a top Pittsburgh Pirates prospect acquired from the New York Yankees’ organization in last year’s Xavier Nady/Damaso Marte trade. While his wife has invoked the right to remain silent, Jose released the following statement on Wednesday: “I was shocked to be told today that my wife has been arrested for kidnapping. I am hurt, frustrated, and confused by her actions. I have and will continue to cooperate with law enforcement officials in any way that I can. Until I have all of the facts, I cannot comment any further.

The baby has since been reunited with her parents, and ICE has launched an investigation into Sirilo-Francisco’s immigration status as well as the baby’s father, Andres Cruz, 29. In 1999 Amalia Tabata Pereira was arrested for grand theft, forgery, arson, filing a false report and using an alias. Court records show she created fake accounts while working at Paycheck Advance, where she stole $20,000. She then staged a fire to hide her activities.

    Interesting that the baby’s mother was willing to give her child away to a stranger if it meant Mommy got to stay in the U.S. I’m not sure I would have given that baby back to her. I think a good mother would rather be deported with her child than hand her over to a stranger even temporarily.

    Amen to that!!

    She was being lied to and told that by giving her baby to the immigration official, that she could avoid deportation and the entire family would remain in the US. The fact that this woman was in a clinic getting her kid a check-up shows she was doing more for that baby than the majority of the parents we feature on the front page.

  • Castille

    I’m sure she believed she’d be getting the baby back, given they reported it as soon as someone else clued her in that this wasn’t on the up and up – in spite of the bit where they’re going to face deportation now. In fact I don’t doubt that she was pressed that she had to turn the baby over now if she wanted her back at all or she’d be taken permanently during deportation somehow. So it isn’t fair to say she’d give the baby up to stay in the US – that’s just not true. But it does seem to be what Amalia was banking on – that after Rosa realized the kidnapping she would be too afraid of approaching police to report it. This is a horrible exploitation of the fears and legal ignorance of someone with undocumented immigration status.

    Exactly.

    I wonder what she was planning. My guess it was going to be a sale..going on her past crime. I doubt she planned on keeping the baby.

    Safe to assume dear mom was illegal… hell, you can throw a rock nowadays and hit one…. easy pickins, for sure. At least the woman wasn’t out to hurt the baby, she just wanted a child. Nabbing an illegal’s kid seems easy enough; the odds of an illegal running to the cops aren’t that high, are they?

  • squirrelbait

    This baby-snatcher was married, so I have to wonder how she planned to explain the sudden appearance of an infant to her dear hubby. Maybe we’ll find out she’s been faking a pregnancy for the past nine months.

  • squirrelbait

    Or maybe she planned to “find” a kidnapped baby for the reward money, and then chickened out. It’s interesting that she gave such a specific date and time for the return of the baby. Perhaps she was running a long con and just didn’t have any fertile friends that could loan her a baby for a few days.

    Sorry, this whole scenario is just so Lifetime television. The scripts in my head are writing themselves!

    In the youtube video, it says she told her husband, who was away playing ball, that she was pregnant. When he was due to return home, she needed to “produce a baby”. I think she did indeed intend to keep the baby.

  • TheImperialCerealKiller

    She’s 43 and has a 20 year old ball-playing husband?
    Yep, I bet she told him she was pregnant to ‘keep’ him. I’m sure he has lots of opportunities to hook up with hot young groupies on the road.

  • CassieMomma

    this is just wrong. How do you have the balls to steal a baby!

  • Etoile

    Does anybody else find it sad that, regardless of her actual immigration status, the mom is now being checked out by ICE? She was a victim of a con artist, and she had to go to the government to get her baby back. Now she may end up getting deported. It just seems unfair.

    Better than not having your baby though.

  • fatcatmama

    Damn, her hubby is hot and 20 years younger….I might steal me a baby to try and keep him too!No not really….well ok maybe just a lil baby?

    Sad, yes, but if she’s in the country illegally, she has no one to blame for how this unfolds but herself. Play the game of risk, you might get caught. I think it’s a sad, but necessary lesson for this woman. Had she been legal, she would not have had to live in fear.

    I do denounce the predatory nature of the baby-snatcher’s tactics and she will have to face her own karma for that nonsense. The most important thing is the child is safe and alive.

  • Anna B.

    From what I’ve been reading, it looks as if she was working on getting citizenship in the US (or had a work visa). So it was likely the threat of being deported was more official looking than just a “We know you don’t belong here” and more of a “Gotta make sure you can stay here” sort of thing.

  • At2126

    Ok, poor mom. Please! The woman was an idiot to just hand over her child, not ask for any credentials, and believe such a half-baked story. Give me your baby and you won’t be deported? Yup, that sounds right, here ya go, take the baby. If her visa was good and valid, then she had no worries which makes me question the validity of that aspect to the story. While it was good of her to take the child to the clinic, people who are willing to go to that extreme, much less stupidly, should not be parents. I’m glad that everything turned out well for the child, but I have to agree with Cyan, and add to that if she is here illegally she can now take her child and leave; try again legally.
