How do you tell a "good hombre" from a "bad hombre"?

by digby




So 60 Minutes features a story about an undocumented worker who has been in the country for years, worked hard, followed the law, started a business, raised a family --- and was deported anyway. His wife, an American, voted for Donald Trump. And she now has regrets, saying that she's sorry she didn't listen more closely to what he was saying.



Her Trump voting neighbors are upset too:

“It just feels wrong,” Kimberly Glowacki, a resident of the same town, told “60 Minutes.”

Michelle Craig, who voted for President Trump, said she did so because Trump promised to deport dangerous criminals.
"This is not the person he said he would deport,” she said. “The community is better for having someone like” Beristain in it.

Beristain was the longtime cook and new owner of a restaurant in town, “Eddie’s Steak Shed,” that employs about 20 people, “60 Minutes” noted. He had no criminal record. He entered the U.S. in 1998 illegally but had been issued a temporary work permit, Social Security number and drivers license under the Obama administration.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told “60 Minutes” in a statement that Beristain was deported for having a “final order of removal” against him. He had obtained a temporary deferral of the order three years ago, “60 Minutes” said, and had checked in once a year with the government.

The incident highlights the change in immigration policy between Obama and Trump. According to ICE, arrests of undocumented immigrants with no criminal record have more than doubled since Trump signed an executive order prioritizing deportations.

Some of Trump’s supporters in Granger are now disappointed.

“I voted for him because he said he was going to get rid of the bad hombres. Roberto is a good hombre,” town resident Dave Keck told “60 Minutes.”

“I mean, he showed up here with just the shirt on his back and he's a restaurant owner 20 years later ... and he worked his butt off to get there,” added resident Matt Leliaert.

“The only bad thing he's done is stayed in the United States because he loves this country,” Helen Beristain said of her husband. “That's his only crime.”


They didn't listen to their exciting TV star candidate.Here's what he was saying:

Donald Trump would reverse President Obama's executive orders on immigration and deport all undocumented immigrants from the U.S. as president, he said in an exclusive interview with NBC's Chuck Todd.

"We're going to keep the families together, but they have to go," he said in the interview, which aired in full on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.

Pressed on what he'd do if the immigrants in question had nowhere to return to, Trump reiterated: "They have to go."

"We will work with them. They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country, or we don't have a country," he said.

Speaking on Trump's gilded private plane as it idled on a runway in Des Moines, Iowa, the real-estate mogul and Republican presidential front runner offered the first outlines of the immigration policy proposals he'd implement from the Oval Office.

Trump said, to begin, "we have to" rescind Obama's executive order offering those brought to the U.S. illegally as children — known as DREAMers — protection from deportation, as well as Obama's unilateral move to delay deportation for their families as well.

"We have to make a whole new set of standards" for those immigrating to the U.S.

The Trump campaign released a full policy paper on immigration online Sunday. Among other things, it reiterates the idea that Mexico should pay for a border wall, and "until they do" the United States will:

"Impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages; increase fees on all temporary visas issued to Mexican CEOs and diplomats (and if necessary cancel them); increase fees on all border crossing cards - of which we issue about 1 million to Mexican nationals each year (a major source of visa overstays); increase fees on all NAFTA worker visas from Mexico (another major source of overstays); and increase fees at ports of entry to the United States from Mexico [Tariffs and foreign aid cuts are also options]. We will not be taken advantage of anymore."

The paper also says a President Trump would triple the number of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officers and defund so-called "sanctuary" cities that don't cooperate with federal immigration round-ups.

He did say it. And he said that he's send the kids too. I don't know what people were hearing if they didn't hear that. I guess it was "lock her up" and "crooked Hillary."
