See the man in the turquoise shirt in the photo above? That's Roberto Beristain, a 43-year-old steakhouse restaurant owner from Granger, Indiana who illegeally entered the US in 1997. He can't vote, but his wife did and she voted for Trump.
Now, he's in the custody of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers after being detained for a voluntary deportation order that he basically ignored. That said, he checked in with ICE every year to maintain his work permit.
For 17 or so years, nothing was made of his annual ICE check-in -- the visit became routine. Then this year, Beristain and was informed he was being detained until he was deported back to Mexico.
Roberto's wife, Helen Beristain told Indiana Public Media she voted for President Trump believing that only "killers" and cartel members would be deported.
"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," she said. "You want to feel safe when you leave your house. I truly believe that. And, this is why I voted for Mr. Trump." w/b: fancylad
