Deportations from US on the rise
As President Barack Obama tries to rally support in the US Congress to revive comprehensive immigration reform this year, his government is removing the United States’ unauthorized population at a gathering pace.
ICE’s Flight Operations Unit, carrying out a policy begun under former President George W. Bush, has moved an average of 4,200 unauthorized migrants a week this year, up from 3,700 last year.
"I don’t think I’ll go back again, it’s’ too hard," said Alvarado, who had spent thousands of dollars trying to reach the US,and had been twice deported.
But Galicia, who had left his job, wife and a 21-month-old son back in Arizona, had other ideas.
"There’s no work" in Guatemala, he said. "As soon as I get there, I’ll be heading back."
Good luck felons, you get deported and come back and I don't see any amnesty in your future.
And I know that the crack reporters aren't really into asking "questions" of illegal aliens but when someone tells you they LEFT THEIR JOB in Guatemala and is going to break our laws again because "there is no work" in his country it leaves me wondering.
I guess the important thing is that he is abandoning his child.
