DETROIT — His arms wrapped around his wife and two teenage children, Jorge Garcia’s eyes welled up Monday as he looked into their eyes one last time near the entrance to the airport security gate.

His wife, Cindy Garcia, cried out while his daughter, Soleil, 15, sobbed into Garcia’s shoulder as they hugged, with two U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents keeping a close eye on them.

After 30 years of living in the United States, Jorge Garcia, a 39-year-old landscaper from Lincoln Park, Mich., was deported on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday to Mexico, a move his supporters say is another example of immigrants being unfairly targeted under the Trump administration.

An undocumented family member brought Jorge Garcia to the U.S. when he was 10 years old. Today he has a wife and two children, all of whom are U.S. citizens.

Jorge Garcia had been facing an order of removal from immigration courts since 2009, but under the previous administration, he had been given stays of removal. Because of the Trump administration’s crackdown on immigration, in November Jorge Garcia was ordered to return to Mexico.

immigrantsHe’s not an immigrant. My grandfather was an immigrant. This POS is an illegal alien. He should have been deported years ago.

I don’t see the big deal. He gets dumped off into Mexico. He takes a bus up to the border. He walks across the border. His American wife likely picks him up, and they move to a new town…to set up a new life. End of the story.

Until the wall is built, he can come and go as much as he desires.

I am confused about one matter. Normally, a foreign citizen can easily (upon marriage to an American) get a Green Card. He evidently can’t get one….so maybe the news folks would like to explain why? Is there a criminal record behind the guy?

Honestly, IF the tale told in the story is true (brought here at age 9, no criminal record, not on welfare etc) then I’d probably support making an exception for him and people like him.

I know that is probably not a popular opinion here, but this guy was brought here as a kid. The crime was committed by whoever hauled him in here.
And deporting an allegedly law-abiding family man gives really poor optics to the immigration discussion and may impair being able to lock it down, because “feelz” .

How many MS-13 gang members were not rounded up while they were working this guys case?
The illegals on welfare and with criminal records should be priority cases, both because it will improve the country to get rid of them and also because thats the kind of optics that aid restricting illegal immigration. This deportation does not do that, IMO.

Yes my grandparents were processed at Ellis Island, checked for diseases that might wreak havoc in America. This guy and his criminal parents just broke the law and snuck in. Eff him and the rest of the criminals.

Rather than sobbing, his family should have voluntarily gone with him to their beloved mexico. I guess they like living in a non-sh**-hole country rather than living in a sh**-hole country.
