Among the first to be deported in our new war on immigrants:
- Guadalupe García de Rayos, a working mother of two US-born children, who reported to US Immigration authorities this year as she has every six months or year since 2009
- An undocumented woman in El Paso who was seeking a protective order against the boyfriend she accused of abusing her
I certainly feel safer now. And I’m sure this will convince other undocumented immigrants that they can continue to trust the courts, schools, and hospitals.
- The crime rate of undocumented immigrants is lower than that of US citizens (AKA sons and daughters of previous immigrants).
- In recent years, more Mexicans have been leaving the U.S. to return home than have been arriving.
Mass deportation of undocumented immigrants will break up families, send them underground, and actually increase our per-capita crime rate.
