39-year-old Jorge Garcia, was deported to Mexico on Monday after living in the U.S. for 30 years. He was brought to the U.S. at the age of 10 by a family member who was also here illegally,and had been working since 2005 to obtain lawful residence.
In November, Jorge Garcia, who was too old to qualify for protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, was ordered to return to Mexico by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after receiving extensions of his removal since 2009 under the Obama administration.
“It was this year, Nov. 20 was our annual visit with them,” Cindy Garcia told CNN. “We went and they told us they were going to detain him. Our faces turned white. We panicked. We didn't know what to do.”
Cindy Garcia said an ICE officer reviewed Jorge’s case before granting him another extension to stay until Jan. 15.
“It was very sad, knowing that we had to face this head-on and there was no more extensions that were coming,” she said.
Cindy Garcia told CNN's Chris Cuomo that she wants President Trump to know that her husband is "not a criminal."
We as the American people Demand for his return to the United States to be with his family. Yes, his family. He has a family. We deport violent criminals and not families. This is not what our country is about and this is not what America is about. We are about fairness, Liberty and Equality.
