Man Living in MI for 30 Years Deported

A landscaper with no criminal record who pays taxes every year, it's possible Garcia might not be allowed to return to his home in Lincoln Park, Mich., for at least 10 years.

Jorge Garcia shared a tearful goodbye with his wife and two children as he was deported to Mexico by ICE agents at Detroit Metro Airport.

Garcia was brought to the country with an undocumented relative when he was 10 years old, according to the Detroit Free Press.

In other words, Garcia was figuratively kicked down the road by the previous administration's policies of not enforcing immigration laws on the books, and now that the Trump Administration has made a decision to enforce the laws, Garcia becomes the new face of government cruelty for immigration advocates. Yet in November, he was ordered to leave the country, because despite having lived here for 29 years and being a law-abiding citizen, he was still brought to America at 10 years old by undocumented immigrants, and that left him a sitting duck for the Trump administration's unholy crackdown on American immigrants writ large.

"There wasn't much that we could do", said Cindy Garcia.

Cindy Garcia told CNN she has struggled to explain to her two children, ages 15 and 12, what happened to their father since his deportation. The Garcias said they asked ICE if they could hold off on deporting him to see if Congress and the White House work out a deal to pass DACA legislation. "They're sad. They're depressed".

"That's when the tears just started flowing, because we knew that was going to be it". Everybody may not get everything they want, but it can be improved to allow people like Jorge Garcia to become valuable American citizens.

"We've never done anything without the permission from Immigrations".

"I feel kind of sad", he told the newspaper.

They recently checked in with immigration services, and that's when they were told he had to leave. Garcia could remain through the holidays, immigration agents reportedly told him, but he had to return to Mexico by January 15.

"The interviews and processing of green cards is extraordinarily slow and challenging", said Sara Curran, a migration expert and the director of the Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology at the University of Washington. "Me not being there for them".

Cindy Garcia said she is working on getting Jorge Garcia back to the USA but it's going to be at least 18 months until she get a hearing with consulate.
