LEFT INCENSED: Illegal Arrested by ICE after Taking Daughter to School
Now we get the sob stories from the Leftists who condone trespassing.
They lament parents separated from their kids, as these stories always tugs at the heart strings. Such is the case of Romulo Avelica-Gonzalez.
As the LA Times reported,
Romulo Avelica-Gonzalez had just dropped off his 12-year-old daughter Tuesday morning at her Lincoln Heights school when two black, unmarked vehicles surrounded his car.
As he pulled away from the school and got back onto the main road, the vehicles’ lights flashed. Avelica-Gonzalez, with his wife and 13-year-old daughter in the car, pulled over. Agents for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, wearing jackets that said “POLICE” on the back, detained the 48-year-old father of four.
ICE officials said the arrest was routine, citing a 2014 order for Avelica-Gonzalez’s deportation. But amid growing fears of mass deportations under President Trump, the arrest has roiled the largely immigrant community north of downtown Los Angeles.
The arrest so shook the school, a public charter called Academia Avance, that administrators held an assembly Tuesday afternoon to discuss what happened and to ease fears. The school’s executive director, Ricardo Mireles, has since ordered his teachers to talk to students whose parents are here illegally about creating a family plan in case they are detained or deported.
A problem no country in the world suffers with Americans
We can all admit, it sucks to get arrested in front of your kids. But when you’ve been living illegally in a country for 25 years, it’s just a matter of time before you’re caught.
But the Left don’t care about taxpaying citizens. They see illegals from one point of view; that of the illegal.
The article continues,
“It’s unfortunate that we have to have minors now deal with reality,” he said. “You need to be ready. ‘Have you talked to your parents? Do you have power of attorney?’ ”
And of course enforcing the law is Trump’s fault. Stupid LAWS. And stupid Trump for enforcing the stupid laws.
Since Trump took office, immigrant communities have been plagued by rumors — some true, many false. Recent targeted operations by ICE have resulted in hundreds of arrests. Such operations were common during the Obama administration but have garnered new scrutiny in recent months.
ICE has a long-standing policy directing agents to generally avoid conducting enforcement activities at so-called “sensitive locations” such as churches, hospitals and schools. But Avelica-Gonzalez’s arrest has sparked new concerns that ICE is loosening that policy — an accusation that federal officials deny.
So we are to believe that there are “no go” zones for enforcing laws? The law is the law. And America is well past time to begin enforcing our laws.
