When Dolt45 was running, he was lying about immigration.
” Two Million Criminal Illegals are here.”
Knew that was a lie, but of course, his deplorables ate it up.
So, post election, where’s the roundup of the two million criminals?
Doesn’t seem to be happening.
What IS happening with more alarm is stories like this:
A dream deported
Maria Mendoza-Sanchez raised four children in Oakland, built a nursing career and bought a home. Then came the election — and the most agonizing decision of her life.
By Hamed Aleaziz
SANTA MONICA, Mexico — In a village two hours north of Mexico City, a girl stands on the patio of her adobe home, looking out on her family’s small plot of land. Maria Mendoza-Sanchez is just 13, but on this day, as she watches her parents drive up in a rush, the path of her life is shifting.
Her 15-year-old sister has become pregnant, and her father is enraged. He steps from his truck, picks up a rope he uses to discipline horses, and barrels through the door. As her sister absorbs the lashing, Maria cries out: “Don’t hit her! She’s going to have a baby!”
Soon Maria is a target, too. “If your sister did what she did after being so quiet and responsible, what can I expect from you?” her father shouts as he hits her. Maria turns silent, knowing anything she says will frustrate the man who’d hoped to have boys to work the land, not four girls.
In their tiny village, wealth is measured in land and sheep. Maria wants more. An education, some independence. Even as the rope strikes her, she thinks: I will prove you wrong. You will see how far I go. I’m not what you think I am.
In this moment, she can’t imagine all that lies ahead but commits herself to seeking a different fate. In time, she will move north to the U.S. She will start as a sidewalk fruit vendor and house cleaner, but make her way to college, become a highly paid nurse, buy a home in Oakland, raise three daughters and a son, and save money so that they can go to college, too.
And then she will lose everything.
What is a mother without her children?
The thought consumes Maria, now an accomplished woman of 46, as she sits in a truck transporting her across the Mexican state of Hidalgo. Dark clouds fill the sky, but the landscape is familiar. She can make out Cerrito de la Cruz, the green hills that surround Santa Monica and its several hundred residents.
It’s Aug. 17, 2017. More than 30 years after her father beat her, more than 20 years since she moved north of the border, she and her husband, Eusebio Sanchez, have been deported amid President Trump’s tightening of immigration. They are on their way back to the village of her childhood. The village she resolved to leave so long ago.
So…just in case you missed it…
Dolt45 ran on getting rid of the illegal criminals.
But, the stories of who is getting deported are more like Maria, and less the gangbanging criminal.
They did a followup story on Maria. She had taken her youngest child, a son, with her to Mexico. But, it became obvious to her that he was a fish out of water. That the small town in Mexico wasn’t his home. Oakland was. So, she did what she thought was best for her son – she sent him back to America to be with his sisters.
So now, we have Maria separated from all of her children.
This woman is a nurse. She helps people as her life’s work.
This woman is a home owner. A Tax payer.
Please show me where she’s a drain on our society.
She has been torn apart from her children and the productive life that she has built because of the racist policies set forth by this Administration.
And, that’s the problem with his comment last week. He can be a racist. Nobody really care. It’s the POLICIES that hurt people. Salvadorans. Mexicans. Haitans. Africans last year, wanting to attend a financial conference and ALL of them being denied Visas for entry.
We are housing Brown and Black in the PRIVATE PRISONS run by ICE. Yes…the private prisons are being stacked with the melaninated.
Just today, I read another one of these stories:
I’ve told you…I live in a city with a large IRISH and EASTERN EUROPEAN ILLEGAL POPULATION.
HOW COME…I’m not reading stories like this about THEM being sent back?
