A Mexican man whose American wife voted for Donald Trump has been deported after decades living in the U.S.
Roberto Beristain, 43, who lived with his wife Helen and four American-born children in Mishawaka, Ind., had been in ICE custody since a routine check-in on February 6.
This, despite his wife's belief that Trump's immigration crack-down would only be on who he referred to on the campaign trail as "bad hombres."
"We don't want to have cartels here, you don’t want to have drugs in your high schools, you don't want killers next to you," Helen Beristain told reporters. "You want to feel safe when you leave your house. I truly believe that. And, this is why I voted for Mr. Trump. [Trump] did say the good people would not be deported, the good people would be checked."
“They suddenly told me it was time to go," Roberto said. "They told me to get my stuff, they put me in the back of a van, and sped toward the border. They took me to another facility while in transport to sign paperwork. I asked to speak with my attorney, but was told there wasn’t time for that. At around 10:00 pm, I was dropped off at the Mexico-U.S. Border and walked into Mexico."
