Detroit Man Deported To Mexico After 30 Years In US

Post by eddie on Sun Jan 28, 2018 4:38 pm

A Detroit father-of-two who has been living in the US for thirty years was deported to Mexico last week. 39-year-old Jorge Garcia was deported on January 15th, and his wife and two children came to the Detroit Metro airport to bid him a tearful farewell.




Garcia was brought to the United States by his aunt when he was ten and has been living in the country ever since. He married wife Cindy Garcia in 2002, and they have been trying to get him legal citizenship since then. Garcia has been facing deportation since 2009 but was able to get stays under the previous administration. But, with the Trump administration’s focus on “law and order” border policing, his family was informed that he would be deported in November. Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Dingell requested that the date be pushed back so he could spend the holidays with his family.

The family had been holding out hope that the new administration would draft an updated version of the  Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) law, which allowed some people who were brought to the country as children to remain. Garcia was too old to qualify for the 2012 version of the law, which allowed deferred arrivals for people up to 31 at the time. But when the new administration failed to draft a new DACA law,  the Immigration and Customs Enforcement department ordered him to leave. His deportation papers stipulated that he is not allowed to return to the US for at least ten years.


His deportation has been very difficult for his family. “We did not want to put up a Christmas tree because it was way too sad to even get to that point,” his wife told CBS news. “It was rough because we knew he was going to leave eventually. All we could do is make memories.” She also spoke about their goodbye at the airport: “We did not want to let him go. We said our goodbyes, we told him we love you, we’re going to miss you, but you don’t want to let someone go that you love. It’s very hard.”

This shit needs to get fixed. Unfortunately Congresses idea of working on immigration is fighting about whether Trump called some shithole countries, shitholes. Trump is a buffoon, but you still have to put the bills in front of him to get him to sign or veto them.

These deportations have to take place if Republicans are going to continue to win elections.

Hispanics, like blacks, vote overwhelmingly Democratic, and very soon they will become the majority in Texas and Arizona as they have in California and New Mexico.

This is the underlying hostility of the Republican Party toward Hispanics, and the engine for RW immigration prevention. They don't call Norway or Denmark shithole countries, just African and Hispanic nations.

The deportations are nothing new. The rate really hasn't changed much since Trump took over.

Norway and Denmark are not shithole countries. That's why no one calls them that.

Most people I know, of both parties want this fixed. No doubt there are some assholes that want to deport the Dreamers, but most folks just want an immigration system that is fair and rewards those that follow the law. Most also want a path to citizenship for people brought here as children.

I'm not really curious about Norway or Denmark.  The point is that Republican hostility toward Africans and Hispanics, and the countries where they originate, derives from the fact that those people end up voting for the other side.

Republicans, because they represent special interests only, are chronically starved for votes.  Millionaires are not that plentiful.  Republicans don't need an influx of millions who will, predictably, vote Democratic.

There is some truth to that. Politicians want to grow their party. They are not above using immigration policy to achieve that.

Or, in this case, diminish their opposition by limiting others.  Leo Marx wrote about this in his, The Machine in the Garden, and which he typified by the slogan: "I've got mine, you can't have yours."

Yup. Both parties have a reason for their immigration stance.

I don't think that the Democrats are trying to limit the immigration of anyone...least of all blacks or Hispanics.

They are not fans of Cubans, for the reasons you have stated.

And Democrats have limited all sorts of immigrants. Shall I remind you of your senior senator's comments about them not that long ago? Wink

Didn't Democrat Obama recently recognize Cuba?

The senior Senator from California is Dianne Feinstein. Whose immigration has she opposed?

I know who the senior senator is, and what she has said in the past. Obviously you don't. I suggest you research it. Wink

No, it's just you.  You are avoiding the issue because, as I have been leading you, you now see whee the conversation is going.  You said:

No you didn't. You scrupulously avoided the subject. Remember? We were watching.
