Trump’s first deportee: Guadalupe García de Rayos
“The only crime my mother committed was to go to work to give a better life for her children,” commented Jacqueline (14 years old) of Guadalupe García de Rayos, 35, one of the first causalities of Trump’s war on immigrants. She was seprated from Jacqueline, su hijo Angel, 16, and her spouse.
Guadalupe had lived in the United States for 21 years. But on February 8, she made a routine visit to the ICE office in Phoenix (AZ), where agents arrested her, branded her a “criminal,” and deported her to Nogales, Mexico the next day.
Guadalupe is Trump’s first deportee. But on February 20, our correspondent, Manuel Torres from the Rio Grande Valley reported that five buses of deportees cross the Hidalgo Bridge daily on their way to the U.S./Mexico border.
But the undocumented immigrants are not alone. Protests, marches and civil disobedience are growing in support of them. The people are pointing the finger at the real criminals: Trump and those billionaires who have taken over the government.
