Why are these people always victims?
Why is this allowed?
Is no one bored of this?
Lawyers for the only known DREAMer deported by the Trump administration filed supporting statements in court Friday from people on both sides of the Mexican border who corroborate Juan Manuel Montes’ account that immigration agents wrongly forced him across the border.
The court filings include statements from the last people to see the 23-year-old Montes in the U.S. and the first people to see him in Mexico after he was deported by Customs and Border Protection agents shortly after midnight on Feb. 19 from Calexico, Calif., where he lived with his family since age 9.
Montes, an undocumented immigrant who had protections against deportation under the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), said he had just finished dinner with a friend and was hailing a ride home when he was seized by agents on the street and forced across the border.
The Department of Homeland Security said it has no record that agents deported Montes that night. Instead, the department said, Montes crossed the border into Mexico voluntarily, immediately revoking his DACA status, which shields undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.
All of those who made statements on Montes’ behalf said he had no intention of going to Mexico and was visibly shaken when he found himself back in his native country.
Both sides agree on what happened next: Montes tried to re-enter the following night by jumping the border wall, was caught by Border Patrol agents and deported back to Mexico.
I sure as hell hope Trump’s agents are secretly rounding these people up!
Why are all these people trying to escape Mexico?
Is it because it sucks?
Why does it suck?
Because there are so many Mexicans there?
The whole DACA program needs to be shut down.
Anything that says “illegals are here legally” can be struck down with executive order. I think.
