Tomas Gonzalez

All quotes about Deportation

Ellen Calmus

Migrants are susceptible in these areas where there's no communication. They are in these informational black holes when they cross the border.feedback

Baldemar Chaqueco Reynoso

There are very few who have the discipline to save for a business.feedback

Isabel Mancilla

One day I looked in the mirror and thought, Who am I? There, everybody was busy with school and work, and here you have more time for family. There you have a bunch of money, but you're going to waste it going shopping.feedback

Alejandro Cedillo

I want them to be with me, to give them values. There are children who get everything, but they are lost, they turn to drugs.feedback

Ellen Calmus

That's where things start going terribly wrong, and it's an invisible humanitarian crisis.feedback

Jaime Arizmendi

I went every year for seven months to work, and then I came back to plant here and teach the children how to work. Now they don't want to come back.feedback

Alejandro Cedillo

It was a hard case. Everybody was against me. They said the children couldn't come here because they didn't speak Spanish, they were coming to a culture that was very different.feedback

Jessica Vaughan

That's why Congress created these forms of relief. I think most Americans would support that.feedback

Salem Magarian

Some people are freaked out. Most people are concerned. Almost no one says 'it's not a big deal.feedback

Carl Rusnok

Rene Michael Lima Marin currently has final orders of removal from a federal immigration judge.feedback

Sebastian A. Arcos

He is in trouble now because of the result of the normalization process which is opening up the possibility, but legally there is no agreement between the two countries to exchange criminals, so he might be in limbo. No one knows what's going to happen in the new administration.feedback

Carlos Samour

Requiring Lima-Marin to serve the rest of his prison sentence all these years later would be draconian, would deprive him of substantive due process, and would perpetrate a manifest injustice. Because the Court finds that Lima-Marin is being unlawfully detained, he is ordered released. No other remedy will result in justice in this case.feedback

Bertrand Rossier

Murder, kidnappings, threats, recruitment by non-state armed actors, extortion, sexual violence, and forced disappearance – these are the realities of war and conflicts also faced by people in this region of Central America. Attempts to stem migration by strengthening national borders and increased detention or deportation, as we have seen in Mexico and in the U.S., ignore a genuine humanitarian crisis and do not curb smuggling and trafficking. These strategies have devastating consequences on the lives and health of people on the move.feedback

Neil Warren

Ms. Colotl knew that she was in the United States without authority to be here and voluntarily chose to operate a vehicle without a driver's license.feedback

Dustin Baxter

We are taking an innocent girl who has done nothing but contribute to the society she has been a part of since she was 11 and making her a villain and poster child for Trump's deportation policies.feedback

Leigh Marks - Dana

Asylum does not solve everything. Imagine I'm the judge, and I have to go through each of these points and show that you have to qualify on each basis.feedback

Swapna Reddy

I wish this were an exception to the rule. It is an exception to the rule in that the senator got involved.feedback

Liz Johnson

It's unfortunate that politicians are repeating misleading information and, in the process, demonizing the men and women whose job it is to enforce the laws Congress writes.feedback

Lindsay Nash

You don't really know what the basis for the asylum officer's decision is.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

In a defeat for President Trump, the [deal] does not fund the immoral and unwise border wall or create a cruel new deportation force.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The world is getting the message. They know our border is no longer open to illegal immigration, and if they try to break in you'll be caught and you'll be returned to your home. You're not staying any longer. If you keep coming back illegally after deportation, you'll be arrested and prosecuted and put behind bars. Otherwise it will never end.feedback

Charlie Beck - Los Angeles Police Department

Everything we've ever told our clients is out the window. It's so demoralizing and so frightening to imagine what happens if it continues.feedback

Olivia Rodriguez

This is not normal. They assume that if they call a government entity it's all connected, that they will be reported to ICE and sent away. So instead they are just taking the abuse.feedback

Wanda Lucibello

When you're talking about immigrant communities, you're talking about perceptions and whether those perceptions are accurate or not. If the perception is that there is a greater risk if you go to the police, you are going to be less likely to do so, and you are more likely to stay in an abusive relationship until you need to seek treatment at a hospital. It's really the opposite of what anyone should want. All of this strengthens the abusive partner.feedback

Kate Marr

We've always told our clients that even if you are undocumented, you don't need to worry about it – the officers are going to protect you.feedback

Bill Daley

Trade is an integral part of our foreign policy. Obviously, the president wants to build a wall, he wants to deport all sorts of people back and blah, blah, blah. You can't separate it. Obviously, in a campaign people say lots of things that they find, when they get in the office, life's a little different. I think it's a good sign that Wilbur Ross is there trying to renegotiate it.feedback

Patrik Engstrom

We have the capacity to deport at most 5,000 rejected applicants a year. We're a smallish law enforcement agency.feedback

Stephen Yale-Loehr

If you don't get this advanced permission, known as advanced parole, then by leaving the country you have effectively abandoned your DACA status. If you return, you are returning illegally and therefore you can be subject to deportation proceedings.feedback

Phil Robertson - Human Rights Watch

By now, there are plenty of survivor accounts that reveal (North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un's administration is routinely persecuting those who are forced back to North Korea after departing illegally, and subjecting them to torture, sexual violence, forced labour – and even worse.feedback

Camille Mackler

Having law-enforcement officials understand how complex immigration issues are and how the consequences of them can often be devastating is critical. You wouldn't normally think of a district attorney as a partner in something like this, but he is stepping up at a moment when immigrants in New York are facing great concerns for their safety.feedback

Eric Gonzalez

We don't want to destroy communities or tear people away from their families for low-level offenses. If someone confronts a guilty plea that would automatically subject them to a harsh immigration penalty and there's another possible plea that would hold them accountable and ensure public safety, justice demands they be given the one that doesn't have immigration consequences.feedback

Eric Gonzalez

We will not stop prosecuting crimes, but we are determined to see that case outcomes are proportionate to the offense as well as fair and just for everyone.feedback

Jeff Sessions

The Department of Justice is absolutely committed to race neutral and fair application of the law in every circumstance. But we have lawful systems of immigration and shouldn't that be enforced? Is that racist to say so? Is it wrong to say that if somebody enters our country unlawfully and they get caught next week in Los Angeles that that somehow is an abusive thing to apprehend them and deport them?feedback

Nora Preciado

Juan Manuel has been unequivocal in his assertion that he never voluntarily left the country while he had DACA. We believe him. We filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to get answers. Rather than continue to provide half-truths and varying assertions, DHS should respond to our request for documentation.feedback

Chiu Chui-cheng

He left his group without notice. From the perspective of our tourism regulations, the immigration authorities absolutely have the authority to apprehend him. If he intentionally overstays in Taiwan, the immigration authorities can deport him after an investigation. We can send him back, according to the tourism agreement between both sides.feedback

Juan Manuel Montes

I was forced out because I was nervous and didn't know what to do or say, but my home is [in the United States]. I miss my job. I miss school. And I want to continue to work toward better opportunities. But most of all, I miss my family, and I have hope that I will be able to go back so I can be with them again.feedback

Nora Preciado

Juan Manuel was funneled across the border without so much as a piece of paper to explain why or how. The government shouldn't treat anyone this way -- much less someone who has DACA. No one should have to file a lawsuit to find out what happened to them.feedback

John Kelly

Its use and possession is against federal law and until the law is changed by the United States Congress, we in DHS, along with the rest of the federal government, are sworn to uphold all the laws that are on the books. Finally, ICE will continue to use marijuana possession, distribution and convictions as essential elements as they build their deportation, removal apprehension packages for targeted operations against illegal aliens.feedback

John Kelly

When marijuana is found at aviation checkpoints and baggage screening, TSA personnel will also take appropriate action. Finally, ICE will continue to use marijuana possession, distribution and convictions as essential elements as they build their deportation, removal apprehension packages for targeted operations against illegal aliens.feedback

Kevin Appleby

Up to now, they have really been using scare tactics to put on a show, to demonstrate to supporters they are tough on immigration. Eventually, they really have to produce results. Without congressional approval [for funding], they will not reach the deportation numbers under Obama. That will be the test. If in the first year, if there are not a significant number deported, how will they distinguish themselves from the previous administration?feedback

Kevin Appleby

They're throwing a lot of public resources at a problem that should not be a priority, especially since the number of [border] crossers is down considerably. Overall, it's a wasted use of resources that could be used more efficiently.feedback

Marielena Hincapie

This is an administration that very much is interested in setting up that mass deportation infrastructure and creating the levers of a police state. In these documents, you have more proof and evidence that they're planning to carry it out.feedback

Kevin de León

It's the absolute height of ridiculousness that ICE would come in and just deport somebody as opposed to that person having their day in immigration court.feedback

John Sandweg

It's very difficult when you have recalcitrant countries that typically will not take those individuals back. I'm not at all surprised to see that the Trump administration is having to release people.feedback

Sarah Rodriguez

Given that the agency had no significant likelihood of removing Mr. Al Seryani in the near future, he was released.feedback

Ames Holbrook

And then if we don't answer those countries that still refuse, then the countries that bought the threat are going to realize that it's not a threat.feedback

Jay Stansell

There's a lot of things Trump thinks he can do because he's Trump. But it turns out that, no, we have a judiciary and you can't legislate immigration law from the White House.feedback

Ames Holbrook

Threats may work. But they're not going to work on everybody, because some countries are going to refuse to do it.feedback

Mariam Masumi

Somehow, magically, after some time, they ended up issuing a travel document. At that point, I couldn't do much to fight it.feedback

Chris Crane

From our perspective it's early on in the process. It's pretty unrealistic to think that the administration can get all of these things taken care of in the first month or first 100 days. They've got a million priorities, and this is just one.feedback

Adam Ansari

He hadn't committed any crimes. He didn't even have a parking ticket. From everyone's accounts he is probably one of the most lovable guys you will ever meet. He is a loving husband and father. And he put a lot of work into his restaurant. It's a little bit unclear but it sounds like he didn't have adequate legal counsel and he entered into a voluntary deportation order. That voluntary deportation then turned into a final order of removal when he didn't leave this country.feedback

Zev Yaroslavsky

Nineteen percent of the Anglos were worried. That could be their maid or co-worker in their office or gardener. The number of people in our country concerned about deportation is staggering.feedback

Myfanwy Buckeridge

I have no evidence before me as to how Miriam came to be in Avon Gorge with multiple injuries. On the balance of probabilities, I consider that was probably due to a fall, but I have no conclusive evidence that she intended to take her own life. I cannot rule out the fact that this may have been a tragic accident or that something she intended to do somehow went astray.feedback

Adam Ansari

ICE officials keep moving him around knowing full well we are arguing that there hasn't been afforded adequate due process. It doesn't seem like they care. It's a complete violation of his rights.feedback

Rekha Sharma-Crawford

Each ERO field office may routinely transfer detainees to other ICE facilities as needed as part of the removal process. Detainees may be 'staged,' for example, at a facility for several days pending removal to their country of origin by air or by land.feedback

Jason Flora

If you asked 100 people to paint you a picture of a bad guy, no one would draw anyone remotely resembling Roberto.feedback

Rekha Sharma-Crawford

Roberto Beristain-Cegueda remains in ICE custody pending his removal to Mexico. For operational security reasons, ICE does not release information regarding upcoming removals.feedback

Jason Flora

Once the case is finalized and done, there's really no reason to keep him around in their eyes. They think, Why take up jail space for no reason if all the legal options have been exhausted?feedback

Pastor Emma Lozano

All of us have to really take a good look at what kind of country we live in. Many military families and Gold Star families are also being affected by deportation.feedback

Adam Ansari

This case is a clear example of how complicated the system is, since even those charged with enforcing immigration laws don't know what they're doing. So how is someone like Roberto - who is not versed in the law - supposed to get right with the law when people who are tasked with enforcing it and representing it to immigration judges don't accurately and properly portray the facts.feedback

Rekha Sharma-Crawford

People look at these things and see an immigration case, but the real story here is that it's a case that involves a fundamental right to due process. When you have a system that fails, it leads to a catastrophic result. Hopefully, we can go back in the court in New York and they will do the right thing.feedback

Sarah Larimer - The Washington Post

Previously, the Obama administration prioritized the deportation of people who were violent offenders or had ties to criminal gangs. Trump's executive order on Jan. 25 expanded priorities to include any undocumented immigrants who had been convicted of a criminal offense.feedback

Yasmeen Pitts O'Keefe

Accordingly, ICE is now making preparations to repatriate Mr. Zhang to his native country.feedback

Jonathan Portes

I think there is a legitimate sense of worry. The government isn't going to deport 3 million people, or even 1 million. But equally, it's not going to give a blanket guarantee. It's not going to simply say to everyone who has an E.U. passport who is here today, That's it, that's all you need, here's your right to permanent residency and citizenship.feedback

Mark Krikorian

It's already hard enough to deport illegal immigrants who really deserve to be deported. The mission of the immigration bar is to obstruct enforcement of the immigration laws, and this is just a way of doing this for pay, or doing it for more pay.feedback

Emily Tucker

They're facing permanent exile from their home, permanent separation from their families, friends and their community. Short of long-term incarceration or the death penalty, deportation is one of the most devastating consequences that can befall you in the American legal system.feedback

Stojan Jankovic

I ended up in this mess because I couldn't fill out my indefinite leave to remain form properly.feedback

John Grayson

Last Thursday afternoon, he went down there, and instead of signing a piece of paper, they locked him up and put him in a van, with no warning at all, so he only had the clothes he stood up in. It is a horrible shock. He is a very integral member of the community in Kentish Town, very popular, and very well-liked. It has made a lot of people very, very angry that this could happen so arbitrarily. It hasn't been underhand or hidden in any way.feedback

John Grayson

He has been employed transparently, and openly and honestly. He was given a national insurance number, and when he started working for us he was allowed to work. He had permission to work.feedback

Stojan Jankovic

I see myself as completely assimilated. I don't know what more I can do in that respect. This is my neighbourhood, my culture. If you don't mind me saying so assertively, this is my place. Why is it not my place? Because I don't have the proper papers signed. I'm sorry, that's my fault, I admit it. My dad was working in tourism, so he put me on a plane with an organised group. I made a plan with my mum: 'ok let's lay low for a couple of months. When everything calms down, because it will have to calm down sometime, I'll come back.feedback

Stojan Jankovic

I am absolutely mortified. I'm not mortified and afraid of this place. This [detention centre] is fine, there's nothing scary about it, but I'm mortified about losing my life.feedback

Daniel Ragsdale

Whether a foreign government wholly refuses to take back one of its nationals or simply refuses to take back its nationals in a timely manner, there are significant resource implications for ICE.feedback

Daniel Ragsdale

There is a clear public safety threat posed to the United States by the failure of uncooperative or recalcitrant countries to accept the timely return of their nationals who have committed crimes in this country.feedback

Emma Hughes

This is an unprecedented victory in the fight against mass deportations, which are racist, violent and kill people … This is just the beginning – we'll keep fighting until the government agrees to stop charter flights and mass deportations once and for all.feedback

John Bursch

The plea resulted in mandatory banishment from the United States. No one seriously doubts that if Mr. Lee knew the truth about his plea, he would have rejected it.feedback

Sonia Sotomayor

So here we have a defense attorney who says: 'I didn't know the law. I told him he wouldn't be deported. And if I had known the law, I would have told him to go to trial,' . So this is both prejudice in the advice and prejudice in the decision to . . . move forward.feedback

Eric J. Feigin

And that's the case here where the lower courts found, in the words of the court of appeals, that (Lee) had no bona fide defense, not even a weak one, and stood to gain nothing from going to trial aside from a longer prison sentence.feedback

Elena Kagan

Why can't a judge find . . . that it is objectively reasonable to give up six or eight or nine months for a shot at staying in this country rather than being deported to a place that you don't know and where you have no ties? I mean, you know, if somebody gave me that choice – sign me up.feedback

Adam Ansari

How do you explain this to children. Trying to explain this to children from the immigrant community has been really hard. You're telling them that their loved one is in jail not because they did something wrong, but because of their country of origin and what they look like. This is hurting the entire community, and people are scared.feedback

Jean-Marie Le Pen

To combat terrorism, we must control our borders and deport all radicalised foreigners!feedback

Jason Flora

Personally, I think the president should be giving him a handshake. Either Trump was lying when he said we were only deporting bad guys or Trump's view of bad guys is so expansive it can literally include every single immigrant.feedback

Sushma Swaraj

Until we verify the nationalities of these people, how do we believe the claims in the list? We have asked the U.S. government for more information and told them that we will give an emergency certificate for their deportation only after establishing their Indian nationalities.feedback

Alejandra Salinas

Clients tell me 'I don't know what would happen if I got taken away. There's no one here to take care of my kids.feedback

Natividad Gonzalez

As a mom I try to do everything so they don't worry when they're not with me. But I don't know what to do for them to not have to go through this. I feel so helpless.feedback

Natividad Gonzalez

You want to make sure you have access to your insulin.feedback

Alejandra Salinas

I know families that wouldn't take their kids to the Mardi Gras parade. They say, I heard they might be picking people up there.' There's a fear of everything, even going to the grocery store.feedback

Joanna Dreby

Instead of cops and robber, it was ICE chasing the immigrant. That's chilling!feedback

Ursula Pertl

Kids are suffering from anxiety about not wanting to leave their parents or being worried [about if] they'll still be there when they get home.feedback

Natividad Gonzalez

I worry that at any time the cops could detain me. I feel uncertain all the time because it seems as if every day there's more bad news against our community. We are at greater risk of having our families broken apart, and we haven't even committed a crime.feedback

Kalina Brabeck

They feel nervous and afraid and worry about things outside their control. What was interesting was that children of undocumented parents had fewer behavior problems and were less likely to be hyperactive. They sit still and are quiet, but they're experiencing a lot of internal stress that might not be so apparent externally. They slip under the radar. They might not be recognized as needing help.feedback

Natividad Gonzalez

These are things that an 11-year-old shouldn't have to be thinking about. Today will be a great day. I want you to learn a lot. When you get home, we will play together or maybe we'll go shopping.feedback

Ginette Arguello

They're having recurring nightmares or eating too much or too little. One child simply told me 'My body aches.feedback

Natividad Gonzalez

People call me all the time, saying 'What can we do?' They are so stressed out.feedback

Natividad Gonzalez

God, please protect my family. I'm placing my family in your hands. You brought us this far to this country for opportunity.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal. It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote. He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.feedback

Scott Kizner

In the event of family separation (accident, arrest, emergency hospitalization, etc.) who will take care of your child temporarily?feedback

Allegra Happy Haynes

Our families, and quite frankly, our staff are terrified. And despite the resolution we passed that you don't get into our schools without a court order, they remain fearful.feedback

Steven R. Staples

Several superintendents who happened to have fairly large immigrant populations were mindful that it was a possibility, and given the national conversation I think their inclination was to seek advice before they had an incident rather than afterward.feedback

Steven R. Staples

Our goal is to get children in school and have them engage in learning. A frightened child doesn't learn much.feedback

Kathryn Finley

Folks are very, very fearful and very uncertain, but I think also wanting to be as proactive as they can be.feedback

Corey Stewart

It's not the school's role to interpose between and to try to stop ICE from doing its job. Rooting out gangs, especially those who are preying on children, is a much higher priority than not offending a couple of illegal aliens.feedback

Scott Kizner

I remember walking up to her and putting my arm on her shoulder and saying, Your child is safe at our school.feedback

Rainier Corral

No, thanks. Most of them are just normal people that are trying to get a better way of life. It's one thing to deport people who have criminal records – that's fine. It's another thing to deport families that haven't done anything wrong.feedback

Sally Hernandez

I am following all state and federal laws, and upholding constitutional rights to due process for all in our criminal justice system. Our community is safer when people can report crimes without fear of deportation.feedback

Taner Akcam

The official Turkish argument is that deportation of Armenians was a response to Armenian uprisings. This is the reason the Van event is crucial in Ottoman Turkish historiography. This argument is not correct, because . . . we know that the decision for deportation was already taken before the Van uprising.feedback

Robert Rector

I don't think it's proper to increase the burden on U.S. taxpayers for people whose only claim to them is that they broke our law. These children receive a large amount of benefits because their parents came here illegally.feedback

Kamal Essaheb

Trump's actions expose this administration's blueprint for reshaping America. Those of us who oppose Trump's agenda need to fight lots of fights. The budget. The Muslim ban and Trump's deportation force will hurt real people in real communities.feedback

Miguelina Diaz

They're making these decisions based on what they hear in the news or information they're getting from other people. People started asking questions right after Trump took office.feedback

Jackie Vimo

We are creating an environment where there are kids living in this country exposed to hunger and malnutrition, and without access to health care. The consequences of not properly caring for those children will catch up with us when they're older.feedback

Luisa Fortin

I get calls from concerned parents all the time: 'should I take my kids out of the program?'. They're risking hunger out of fear … and my heart just breaks for them. And I try my best to keep in touch in them. … But in the end, if that fear is too real, I tell them it's their family's decision. And I connect them with a food pantry or mobile food distribution.feedback

David Thomsen - National Council Of La Raza

We used to tell people that signing up does not make you a public charge. Now my advice would be, if you're worried, talk to a lawyer.feedback

Elizabeth Foydel

It's very difficult to say whether he fully understood the implications of what he was doing.feedback

Jeanne Shaheen

This is a matter of life and death for interpreters and other support staff. As we speak, many of them are being hunted down by the Taliban and other terrorists. We have a moral obligation to protect the thousands of Afghans who put themselves, and their families, at risk to help our soldiers and diplomats. To abandon them now would be a stain on our nation's honor. There's no excuse for Congress to not act in a bipartisan way to approve these additional visas as it has done in the past.feedback

Jeanne Shaheen

It's imperative that Congress act quickly to approve more visas. This is a matter of life and death for interpreters and other support staff. As we speak, many of them are being hunted down by the Taliban and other terrorists.feedback

John McCain

We simply cannot win this war without the assistance of the Afghan people who put their lives on the line to help American troops and diplomats serving in harm's way. Unfortunately in recent years, Congress has reneged on the promise we made to protect these brave individuals by failing to authorize the appropriate number of Special Immigrant Visas for Afghan translators and interpreters.feedback

Jeanne Shaheen

It's imperative that Congress act quickly to approve more visas. We have a moral obligation to protect the thousands of Afghans who put themselves, and their families, at risk to help our soldiers and diplomats.feedback

Chuck Schumer

If Republicans insist on inserting poison pill riders such as defunding Planned Parenthood, building a border wall, or starting a deportation force, they will be shutting down the government and delivering a severe blow to our economy.feedback

Yaritza Mendez

I try to make it interactive because it's long and very sad, in a way.feedback

Pablo Alvarado

We're training the trainers. People don't have to be lawyers to share what the constitutional rights of people are.feedback

Vander Velpen

We're turning the clock back 10 years. We have six months to appeal it, and we're already intensively preparing our arguments.feedback

Aya Sabi

Removing terrorists from Belgian soil isn't going to solve anything; they'll just continue abroad.feedback

Theo Francken

I am not going to put someone out of the country, who has lived here all of his life and has children here and so forth, just because he got two speeding tickets. That's absurd. That is not my intention at all. If I can keep a Syria fighter in Syria, then I'll definitely do that, that's for sure. We're already taking back all the Belgian nationals. And to be honest, we don't know what to do with them anymore, and in fact, the whole of Europe doesn't know what to do with these people anymore.feedback

Theo Francken

Let me be very clear. This is about 20 cases of terrorism and 50 cases of heavy criminality. It's about simplifying the procedures of orders for leaving the territory.feedback

Vander Velpen

The Immigration Office can immediately, without interference of a judge, put someone out of the country based on indications that he or she could pose a threat to the public order.feedback

Aya Sabi

That's the same logic the government applied when foreign terrorist fighters started to leave for Syria, and that didn't turn out well, did it?feedback

Terry Dwyer - KDP Investment Advisors

The deportation crackdown is doing very good things for these companies. On a personal level, it leaves a sour taste in my mouth, but I guess business is business.feedback

Naomi Tsu - Southern Poverty Law Center

We will continue to challenge the unconstitutional actions of ICE agents in this case and will not rest until she is no longer under threat of deportation.feedback

John Shimkus

We owe all the men and women who have fought for our nation an enormous debt of gratitude and respect. Prior military service alone, however, cannot create a blanket exemption from the laws of our country. The current policy, which requires senior immigration officials to review each situation in which a green-card-holding veteran faces deportation, allows for the unique circumstances of each case to be considered.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Voters abandon President Trump on immigration. “Illegal immigrants should be allowed to remain in the U.S. and eventually become citizens, 63 percent of American voters say, the highest level of support for this option since Quinnipiac University began asking the question in 2012. Another 11 percent say illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay, but not become citizens, and 23 percent say they should not be allowed to stay. Only illegal immigrants who have committed a serious crime should be deported, 55 percent of voters say, while 21 percent say deport illegal immigrants who have committed any crime. All illegal immigrants should be deported, 19 percent say, while 3 percent say no immigrants should be deported.”.feedback

Tilman Fertitta

I don't know that Trump totally understands his immigration policy yet. I don't know that they have been blundered. I think that he spoke more rhetoric to fire up his base. But Donald Trump is a smart man and he is not going to just start deporting people. He doesn't want to deport illegal people. I think he makes that clear when you read and really listen to his speeches and what he says.feedback

Joseph Dunn

The Republicans decided the way they were going to create jobs was by getting rid of anyone with a Mexican-sounding name. For participating cities and counties, they would go through public employee rolls and look for Mexican-sounding names and then go and arrest and deport those people. And then there was a job opening! We weren't rounding up people who were Canadian. It was an absolutely racially-motivated program to create jobs by getting rid of people.feedback

Raul Castro

The new agenda of the U.S. government threatens to unleash an extreme and egotistical trade policy that will impact the competitiveness of our foreign trade; violate environmental agreements ... hunt down and deport migrants. You can't contain poverty, catastrophes and migrants with walls, but with cooperation, understanding and peace.feedback

Nina DiSalvo

That's obviously a big deal; it's recognizing the possibility that a government contractor could be engaging in forced labor. That means you need to round up and detain more people in order to determine whether they have the rights to stay in this country before you deport them. More people could be moving through, not just in the Aurora facility. More people could be subjected to GEO's forced labor policy.feedback

Macy Hudson

Every time we talked it was like she was finding new pieces of herself.feedback

Jordan Sanders

She said she was in a cell with other girls. She hasn't even taken a shower yet because she's scared to. She has no clue what's going on.feedback

Jordan Sanders

They rushed around the vehicle and opened Dany's side of her door and they were just like, You know who we are, you know who we're here for.feedback

Helen Ramirez

Their biggest fear is that their kids will end up in foster care.feedback

Randy Capps

The odds are still very low but not as low as they were – and this is just the beginning of the administration.feedback

Melvin Arias - Costa

If there comes a time when both of us have a problem, I want there to be a responsible person who can come and get [the children] for us, to take them to wherever we might be.feedback

Rebecca Kitson

If Mom doesn't come home by a specific time, who do [the kids] call?feedback

This festival uses an imperialist model and prioritizes centralizing and packaging culture over communities and people's safety. It's no secret that SXSW has played a huge role in the process of Austin's rapid gentrification. The whole festival exists to the detriment of working class people and people of color in Austin. That they're willing to threaten deportation is enough evidence for me that they don't care about anyone including the artists that lend them their legitimacy.feedback

Dimitris Avramopoulos

But it should never be considered something like a concentration camp.feedback

Dimitris Avramopoulos

Return rates have to be improved. Member states should also use the possibility to place migrants in detention if there is a risk of absconding and for a sufficient period to be able to complete the return and readmission procedure.feedback

Sean Spicer

Remember, everybody who is here illegally is subject to removal at any time. That is consistent with every country, not just ours. If you're in this country in an illegal manner, that obviously there's a provision that could ensure that you be removed.feedback

Irene Clennell

The authorities have shown their willingness to treat foreign-born people as second class citizens, no matter how integrated they are, and worse, treat us like criminals. During my removal from Britain I was treated like a terrorist: I was restrained by the arms, my every word written down, and there were guards on the door when I went to the toilet. This happened in full view of the public in Edinburgh airport and was deeply humiliating.feedback

Irene Clennell

The border authorities even claimed that I – a woman on my own – posed a risk of violence. And they ticked a form to note the media interest and public sympathy in my case, as if I was to be punished for speaking out. I am hoping to lodge an appeal against my deportation, which I believe has been conducted secretly, inappropriately and with little due process.feedback

Irene Clennell

Above all, I would appeal to all those who have made 'migrant' a term of abuse, to think about the human cost of their actions. Wanting to build a life and a family, and to be around people and places that you love, is not a crime.feedback

Irene Clennell

Everything that took place last weekend was the latest step in a long story of an immigration system that provides no adequate support to claimants, and does its best to treat honest people like liars and thieves.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

The president's Muslim and refugee ban dishonors our values, violates our constitution and undermines our nation's fight against terror. He has launched a cruel deportation dragnet that will tear families apart, and has hauled law-abiding immigrants out of church shelters, courtrooms and schools.feedback

Dianne Feinstein

Under this new guidance, 11 million undocumented immigrants are now priorities for deportation.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Let me be clear, there will be no mass deportations, everything we do in DHS will be done legally. The focus of deportation will be on the criminal element, all of this will be done in close coordination with Mexico.feedback

Mark Hugo Lopez - Pew Research Center

Those who are most concerned are those at most risk for deportation, people who don't have U.S. citizenship. Among U.S. born Hispanics, most are confident about their place in America after Donald Trump's election. While it's not much different from what we've seen in the past with surveys we've done on Hispanics, we would need to remeasure this given what's happened in the last few weeks.feedback

Luis Videgaray

The Mexican government will take all the measures legally possible to defend the human rights of Mexicans abroad, especially in the United States.feedback

Jason Marczak - Economic Growth

The relationship... is at such a historic low that it would be wishful thinking to assume that new concrete agenda items to advance [it] will come at this point.feedback

Abril Gallardo

We have a regular life, but with this new executive order, anyone, just for the fact that you're here, you can become a priority.feedback

Cristina Parker

We got over 1,000 phone calls in three days about the raids. And certainly a lot of those were people who wanted information about the raids saying, I'm scared, I'm worried, what can I do?. A lot of them were people who were impacted by the raids who saw a friend or family be taken.feedback

Paul Ryan

I'm here to tell you, in Congress, it's not happening. But if you're worried about, you know, some deportation force coming, knocking on your door this year, don't worry about that.feedback

Adam Coogle - Human Rights Watch

We hear reports that deportations are ongoing and they probably increased following the attack in Rukban camp in June, 2016.feedback

Matteo Paoltroni

If you keep people in the shade (they) will have to do something to survive. If you are a government body and ... security is one of your biggest problems then you want to know where these people are.feedback

Geronimo Gutierrez

Obviously, they are a cause for concern for the foreign relations department, for the Mexican government, and for all Mexicans.feedback

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

These memos confirm that the Trump administration is willing to trample on due process, human decency, the well-being of our communities, and even protections for vulnerable children, in pursuit of a hyper-aggressive mass deportation policy.feedback

Chris Burbank

I heard about it through a back channel, and had to assure her we were not going to deport her for us to get involved.feedback

Joanne Lin

[D]ue process, human decency, and common sense are treated as inconvenient obstacles on the path to mass deportation. The Trump administration is intent on inflicting cruelty on millions of immigrant families across the country.feedback

Maria Bilbao

They are broadening ways in which immigration officials can deport families. How can they keep a clear conscience.feedback

Stephen Yale-Loehr

If Trump wants to put more people in deportation but does not increase the number of immigration judges, then people are going to have to wait longer and longer to get a hearing.feedback

Joseph Tobin

Personally I think it was very misbegotten. I think it's demonizing, playing on irrational fears of people that have been fomented not simply by the political class but also some irresponsible people in the media. Are you going to chase people down the streets trying to lock them up and deport them? Or are you going to say this legislation is broken? Let's fix it.feedback

John Stevens Val

You lose all of your money and now you do not even succeed. It's not easy to live in Haiti. It's complicated. There is no aid; there is no organization that can help us in one way or the other. We're here. We live poorly. If I don't have any opportunities, I'll leave.feedback

Adelson Lorgeat

They spent a lot of money. It's like a broken dream. They left thinking they would stay 20, 30, 40 years or never return. They consider it to be a dishonour, a defeat.feedback

Manny Garcia

In the dead of the night, while the very families that will be targeted by this discriminatory legislation were asleep, Republicans voted to launch Trump's deportation force agenda.feedback

Charles Perry

This is not a deportation bill, this is a rule of law bill. We have almost a culture of contempt for federal immigration law.feedback

Dennis Herrera

President Trumps' executive order tries to turn city and state employees into federal immigration officers. That is unconstitutional. No president can commandeer the local police force and turn it into the deportation arm of the federal government.feedback

Fuad Sharef

We were treated like drug dealers, escorted by deportation officers. I am broken, I am totally broken.feedback

Chris Newman

There is no question that in order to do the type of mass deportation that he promised, it will require him conscripting local law enforcement agencies. It is going to balkanize things ... and we're going to see more of the extremes.feedback

Fuad Sharef

We were treated like drug dealers, escorted by deportation officers. I feel very guilty towards my wife and kids. I feel like I'm the reason behind their dismay. I see [it is] like autocracy, someone signs and effective immediately what does this mean? It is just like Saddam Hussein's decisions. Yeah without going back to the Congress, I don't understand. I am broken, I am totally broken, I don't understand how he rewards those people who helped him. I don't understand this. When we worked with them, we put our lives, my life, my family's life, in jeopardy.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. Expanding the focus of law enforcement beyond people who are real threats would make all Americans less safe by diverting resources, while millions of undocumented folks who don't pose a threat will live in fear of deportation. We are a nation of immigrants, and we all benefit when the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here. I hope we find the courage and compassion to bring people together and make this world a better place for everyone.feedback

Bill de Blasio

We will not deport law-abiding New Yorkers. There is less here than meets the eye. This executive order is written in a very vague fashion.feedback

Bill de Blasio

This executive order could in fact undermine public safety and make our neighborhoods less safe. Firstly because this executive order could undermine the relationship between our police department and our communities which has been the foundation of our ability to drive down crime. We will not deport law-abiding New Yorkers. We will not tear families apart.feedback

Paul Ryan

We're going to pay for it and front the money up. There are a lot of different ways of getting Mexico to contribute to doing this . . . We will be working with [Trump] to finance construction of a physical barrier, including the wall, on the southern border. I'm a person who believes that for the undocumented, we have to come up with a solution that doesn't involve mass deportation, that involves giving people the ability to get right with the law, to come in and earn a legal status while we fix the rest of legal immigration.feedback

Isidro Morales

There will be deportations but probably at the same level as under Obama. Perhaps, it will increase a little bit but I do not believe there will be the deportation of three million that he has proposed, because the capacity for police to deport so many does not exist.feedback

Greisa Martinez

There is a vast network of a deportation structure that will now facilitate Trump's move to deport millions of people more.feedback

Julio Hernandez

What life are we going to have if they deport us? We feared this would happen and sadly we find ourselves in a country where we can't do anything.feedback

Ivan Diaz

It's taken the oxygen from me. I've got $10 left in my pocket. We are going to carry on. We don't lose anything by going to the Laredo border. We must be able to do something. Otherwise, let them deport me back to Cuba.feedback

Kevin Herman

It's stories like that that have motivated me to become efficient and upgrade my equipment. No doubt about it. I probably wouldn't have spent as much or bought as much machinery as I did.feedback

Tom Nassif

I think he's looking at people who have committed more serious crimes and start with them first -- and rightly so.feedback

David Zonderman

California might be ground zero. But it's not a unique California issue.feedback

Joe Garcia

Our workers are scared. If they're concerned, we're concerned. We'll plan around what we have. That's all we can do.feedback

Cecilia Muñoz

Ultimately, it wouldn't protect a single soul from deportation, so it's not an answer here.feedback

Jerry Moran

There must be serious legislative efforts to address U.S. immigration policy, and we must have the ability to identify, prosecute and deport illegal aliens who display violent tendencies before they have an opportunity to perpetrate these crimes in the United States.feedback

Angela Merkel

We have also made progress this year on the very important issue of deporting Tunisian citizens who have no right to stay in Germany. I told the Tunisian president that we have to significantly speed up the deportation process and increase the number of people sent back. We can be relieved at the end of this week that the acute danger is over. However the danger of terrorism in general endures, as it has for several years. We all know that.feedback

Worrasit Piriyawiboon

This is not an extradition. This is a deportation. Once he's in Switzerland, he's a free man.feedback

Worrasit Piriyawiboon

It's now up to immigration when they decide to deport him and up to his embassy.feedback

George King

I have not been able to speak to him since they took away his phones. I understand they will deport him.feedback

George King

I have no idea why I am being held, nor has anyone proffered any kind of explanation. As far as I am aware, I haven't been charged.feedback

Maria Burnett - Human Rights Watch

We have serious concerns that officials seek to silence independent voices who are critical of the government. We have documented cases of intimidation, arrest, questioning and harassing criminal charges brought against Kenyan journalists and bloggers.feedback

George King

The immigration officer noticed something on her computer and led me to a side room. They said there was a security block on my passport, which had been put there by Kenyan security services.feedback

Jeremy Robbins

This election clearly showed that Americans are wildly frustrated with our broken immigration system. But it would be a mistake, to equate their desire for someone to secure the border with support for mass deportation or other hard-line policies that would both devastate the economy and undermine core American values.feedback

Jeff Sessions

Under Donald Trump, this left-right business coalition thing is not going to work.feedback

Sarah Leah Whitson - Human Rights Watch

A mass and summary deportation of migrants, including men and women who may have fled persecution or have worked for years in Algeria, would violate their rights. The right of a country to control its borders is not a license for lawlessness.feedback

Bob Libal

They're handing the keys to a deportation machine over to the Trump administration. And I think there's no reason to believe that the Trump administration won't drive that machine forward through human rights protections or due process protections people in the detention system.feedback

Donald J. Trump

After the border is secure and after everything gets normalised, we're going to make a determination on the people that they're talking about – who are terrific people. They're terrific people, but we are going to make a determination at that. But before we make that determination … it's very important, we are going to secure our border.feedback

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

People are entitled to due process in their removal proceedings. You can't just scoop people up, put them on a plane and have them be gone.feedback

Stephen Legomsky

If Congress were to appropriate more funds for enforcement, then he could go after garden-variety undocumented immigrants. It's very hard to predict how much money Congress will want to appropriate for that purpose.feedback

Muzaffar Chishti

President Trump would be confronted by two very important impediments – resources and the constitution.feedback

Ali Noorani

If they're going to set an arbitrary number, they're going to waste valuable law enforcement resources and detain and deport fathers, mothers and children who are stuck in a broken immigration system.feedback

Carlos Rojas

We know that there are going to be people on both sides of the issue. But I think that what no one could argue with is that a university and a college campus have a moral responsibility to make the students that are paying tuition and just want to get an education feel safe.feedback

Gillian Christensen - Homeland Security

The ICE and CBP sensitive locations policies, which remain in effect, provide that enforcement actions at sensitive locations should generally be avoided, and require either prior approval from an appropriate supervisory official or exigent circumstances necessitating immediate action.feedback

Gillian Christensen - Homeland Security

DHS is committed to ensuring that people seeking to participate in activities or utilize services provided at any sensitive location are free to do so without fear or hesitation.feedback

Miriam Zamudio

We don't know what Trump is going to do. We don't know if he is going to demand this information, and we want our administration and our school to stand with us.feedback

Matt Adams

These cities have reaffirmed they're going to respect the dignity of all their residents. What they're saying is, We're not going to use our resources to separate families, to deport children, to tear communities apart.feedback

Donald J. Trump

What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate. But we're getting them out of our country, they're here illegally.feedback

Karina Ruiz

I'm not giving up DACA so easily, not going down without a fi ght.feedback

Dianne Louis

I will not let them deport him. We are already thinking ahead... we gotta ship our stuff, gotta buy airline tickets.feedback

Gary Burtless - Brookings Institution

Many of those products on Wal-Mart and Best Buy shelves are made in China. If we slap 40 percent tariffs on them, we'll pay more.feedback

Brandon Whitt

I walked into an 8th grade job fair last Friday and one of the first questions I got was from a girl who asked why I didn't wear overalls. There's a huge disconnect.feedback

Kimberly Coerr

Released from restrictions they can put us in another case where banks can run rampant and fail and hurt us all over again.feedback

Brandon Whitt

I saw a rural America, blue-collar, hat-wearing Americans that get out and work with their hands that stood up and expressed themselves. We gathered in churches and communities all across the countryside and we voted for what we thought provided a better opportunity for our families and our country as a whole.feedback

Dora Rodriguez

When (former California Gov.) Pete Wilson was here, I heard the same ... and nothing happened.feedback

Michael Nazario

I feel bothered by this election but it only inspires me to just keep going forward because what's at stake is not only my deferred action but my family as well, my father, my mother and the 11 million immigrants all across the country.feedback

Matt Lee

People are not sure if Trump will definitely carry out what he said because it is a crazy idea. Now the crazy idea of him being elected – that happened. Nothing is certain.feedback

Alicia Ramirez

We're afraid. We've got to be careful because the smallest mistake, he's going to kick us out.feedback

Dora Rodriguez

When (former California Governor) Pete Wilson was here, I heard the same ... and nothing happened.feedback

Sana Altaf

I have been crying all night, this morning. It's like someone telling you you're not welcome here.feedback

Lidia Calvo

She shared with me that somebody said to her .... have you packed your bags already?feedback

Lorena Gonzalez

The government now has a list of people who are here without documentation – their names, their addresses, how long they've been here, where they work.feedback

Humberto Roque Villanueva

They wouldn't be retaliatory measures. They would be legal responses. We'll be ready for all the craziness.feedback

Humberto Roque Villanueva

It may well be that deportations of the estimated 6 million undocumented Mexicans increase but we don't think it will be a measure that will take place soon or happen quickly. The Mexicans over there are useful to the North American economy and President Trump, the president-elect, will need to recognize the economic effects of such a campaign promise.feedback

Abdul Hameed Jalili

On the coming Monday, she will be deported. The government and the people of Afghanistan await Sharbat Gula with great emotion, and will welcome her very warmly.feedback

Leslie R. Caldwell - Justice Department

This transnational criminal ring targeted victims in the United States, impersonating IRS, Immigration, police and other government officials, and demanded immediate payments to avoid deportation, arrest warrants or to cover allegedly unpaid income taxes. They tricked frightened individuals by targeting their worst fears.feedback

Leslie R. Caldwell - Justice Department

The U.S. government does not operate in this manner. We never call to demand that money be loaded immediately onto prepaid cards. U.S. government agencies do not call to demand immediate payments to avoid deportation or to avoid arrest.feedback

Emily Kessel

We are appalled by the unjust deportation of our friend and fellow adoptee who was adopted by U.S. citizens as a child and is a survivor of unspeakable abuse and trauma. It is time for lawmakers to stop making excuses and pass legislation that will put an end to the deportation of Americans. Because that is what adoptees are. Americans.feedback

Hillary Clinton

But I want to put our resources where I think they are most needed: Getting rid of any violent person. Anybody who should be deported, we should deport them.feedback

Jeh Johnson

We will have to deal with that situation, address it, be sympathetic to the plight of the people of Haiti as a result of the hurricane. But after that situation, after that condition has been addressed, we intend to resume the policy change that I brought about several weeks ago.feedback

Andrea Guerrero

It is an unstable and unsafe place, and it's pretty clear that the conditions in Haiti have not improved.feedback

Ginger Jacobs

Haiti has limited resources, limited employment opportunities and if deported, these people have a limited chance of prospering in such desperate conditions.feedback

Marleine Bastien

The country has been dealing with so many traumas and natural disasters, and then you come with this change of policy at this 10th hour?feedback

Samuel Pierre

I do understand that there was an influx of Haitians in southern California.feedback

Samuel Pierre

However I do think that when you do start to single out specific community groups, you are opening a can of worms.feedback

Pernille Vermund

To stop the process of asylum cases in Denmark, to demand that foreigners are able to provide for themselves, and of course to deport criminal foreigners after the first conviction.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It's our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us. If we can save American lives, American jobs and American futures, together we can save America itself.feedback

Alfonso Aguilar

For the last two months, he said he was not going to deport people without criminal records. He actually said that he was going to treat undocumented immigrants without criminal record in a humane and compassionate way. He said he was going to soften his position. He's basically saying, we deport you or we self-deport you. It's even worse than what he initially proposed.feedback

Benjy Sarlin - NBC News

But he also promised a major expansion of enforcement in general, including a recommitment to an earlier proposal to triple the number of ICE agents devoted to enforcing immigration laws within the country. He proposed requiring all businesses to use an e-verify system to screen illegal workers and a return to work-site raids.feedback

Benjy Sarlin - NBC News

[T]he overall message was clear. When it comes to Trump's platform now, and not in some hypothetical land where illegal immigration has been ended, the plan is mass deportation.feedback

Angelica Salas

Trump tripled down on hate and fear-mongering. A 10-point deportation plan is still mass deportation and the American public should see right through Trump's charade.feedback

Donald J. Trump

If we only enforce the laws against crime, then we have an open border to the entire world. We will issue detainers for illegal immigrants who are arrested for any crime whatsoever and they will be placed in immediate removal proceedings – if we even have to do that.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We will build a great wall along the southern border, and Mexico will pay for the wall. Remember – 100 percent. They don't know it yet, but they're going to pay for the wall.feedback

Dan Stein

But even more important than the details of the plan itself, Trump laid out the most fundamental principle for true immigration reform: The policy exists to protect and serve 'the well-being of the American people,' and 'protect all aspects of American life.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We agreed in the meeting on the need to stop the illegal flow of guns, drugs, cash and people across the border and to take out the cartels. Our country is being poisoned.feedback
