Deported: Families Left Behind

Actions Have Consequences

To be an illegal alien in the United States today can include a tragic rift in your family. One example is Jorge Garcia, age 39, of Lincoln Park, Michigan. Jorge was brought over our border as a child, by a family member. As of the time of capture by ICE agents, Jorge was a husband, father of two teenagers, and a park landscaper by trade. It is heartbreaking to see the tearful goodbye footage of January 15, 2018, where Jorge was escorted to the security gate of the plane to Mexico. The family of four hugged and sobbed while two immigration agents, who kept close, watched on.

This is a good example of what can and will happen, whether you snuck over our border or you were illegally brought here by family. As a child, you may not have been responsible for the initial act of illegally migrating, but as an adult, and even before then, you certainly know that you are not in this country legally.

To represent the other side of views, Detroit Free Press columnist Rochelle Riley says “He wasn't going home. He was being sentenced to prison in a foreign country away from family and friends.” She says “Jorge Garcia, model husband, and dad…” “…had never even had a traffic ticket.” Protesters at the airport security gate held signs saying, “Stop Separating Families.” It is noted that Jorge’s wife and children are legal citizens and that he's been trying for years to find a path to live legally in the U.S., with him and his wife spending $125,000 in legal costs and fees since 2005, says his wife. Unfortunately for him, Jorge is too old for D.A.C.A.

Jorge’s wife Cindy was later invited to appear on a CNN show. They were dealt a surprise when she stated that she was not mad at President Trump and she did not blame him. She says the administration needs to revisit the law because, at least in part, it is broken. She goes on to say that she is a citizen and has always obeyed the law. CNN no longer has that portion of her interview posted on their website; however, the link above was found on another site.

Her quote verbatim is as follows: "I am not upset at our government due to the fact that I am a U.S. citizen and that our laws come first. Our laws are just broken and need to be fixed, but I can't be mad at Trump for doing his job because that is his job to protect us, as U.S. citizens, from criminals. The only thing is my husband was not a criminal and those are the laws that need to be fixed because they are broken for the people … brought as children, doing the right thing, and have never committed a crime. For the criminals that have come here illegally, they need to go back."

The last administration had given Garcia stays of removal. However, when President Trump took office, as per his campaign promise, he initiated a crackdown on immigration. Garcia was then advised in November that he was to be returned to Mexico. He was told by ICE that he had to leave by January 15th, 2018.

There is a form and directions on how to apply for admission into the United States after deportation.

The bottom line is quite simple: if you want to live in this country, you must come in the right way. You must, by law, register to be authorized to become a citizen of this country. Do not sneak over our border and think you can just take a chance that you will not be identified.

A strong example would be our First Lady Melania Trump; she came into the United States, registered, waited for the process to be legally completed and was granted citizenship. She speaks five languages, she is a great advocate for humanity, and she is now our first lady.

  1. WHen Mexicans come to America, they leave a terrible situation, or at least one of more hopelessness than the goal of the USA. They endure a trip through the desert, or at least packed into trucks or boats, with many hazards. When they reach the border, they already know, from years and years of anecdotes from successful illegal migrants before, that there will be questions, possibly cages, or even deportation back.

    Only white liberals who don't want to feel anything, are squeamish that those who took these perils should endure anything further once they get here. I am not for illegal immigration, I am against every white liberal, and every member of La Raza and the Communist Party, which uses everything to destroy America and everything good.

  2. Agree, the law is broken and ignored by Congress because immigration is a key to the Re-Election agenda. Stop the career politicians, make "right" immigration laws...it's your job!
