This Family's Heartbreaking Story Reveals the True Human Consequences of Trump's DACA Fight

Garcia, reportedly brought to the USA illegally at the age of 10, was said to have paid taxes and had no criminal record, according to supporters.

A man living in MI for almost 30 years was deported, leaving behind his wife and two children.

In other words, Garcia was figuratively kicked down the road by the previous administration's policies of not enforcing immigration laws on the books, and now that the Trump Administration has made a decision to enforce the laws, Garcia becomes the new face of government cruelty for immigration advocates.

Jorge Garcia's deportation turned him into the latest public face of what many of President Trump's critics have called a cruel and excessive crackdown on undocumented immigrants by the administration.

Jorge Garcia, 39, of Lincoln Park, hugs his wife and two kids before being escorted by ICE agents to be deported to Mexico, on January 15, 2018, at Detroit Metro Airport. The Garcias said their 12-year-old son has been taking the news hard, not expressing himself, which is concerning his parents.

Cindy said for the last 13 years Jorge has been checking in with ICE and working on finding a path to citizenship.

She said: 'That's when the tears just started flowing, because we knew that was going to be it wasn't much that we could do.

She says her husband's deportation didn't feel real until they were at the airport saying goodbye.

On Monday, 39-year-old Jorge Garcia was deported to Mexico after being deemed too old to apply for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Mr Garcia had asked ICE to let him wait out that potential deal with the hopes that his circumstance would be covered by the deal, but was ultimately denied.

Cindy Garcia said she has become an advocate for immigrant rights due to seeing what has happened to her husband and the rest of the family.

Speaking with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Cindy Garcia said Monday night that she wants the president to know Jorge "is not a criminal".

On Sunday night, a heavy-hearted Garcia said he was sad and anxious. "Me not being there for them".

"We did not want to put up a Christmas tree because it was way too sad to even get to that point", said Cindy Garcia, his wife.

The couple regularly reported to ICE officials and were forced to seek permission when leaving their home town.
