In a rural county that voted for President Donald J. Trump, people are shocked to see friends, neighbours and schoolmates deported.

  1. no, not really. Those who voted for him knew he would enforce current laws and that is what he is doing. Obama ignored immigration laws to flood the country with future voters

  2. “How does something immoral, when done privately, become moral when it is done collectively? Furthermore, does legality establish morality? Slavery was legal; apartheid is legal; Stalinist, Nazi, and Maoist purges were legal. Clearly, the fact of legality does not justify these crimes. Legality, alone, cannot be the talisman of moral people.”

    ― Walter E. Williams

  3. What a shame but they knew what they were voting for. They had blinders on and felt Trump was the lesser of two evils. I didn’t want either Clinton or Trump but I would have rather taken chances with Clinton. At least our country wouldn’t have become the laughing stock to the rest of the world.. I feel sorry for the innocent victims being most affected by the voters conned by Trump.

  4. The numbers are no where near what this article would make it seem. You have to be here legally and pay taxes like everyone else. Shame on anyone getting a free ride off of the hard work of others.

  5. You were told. For months you were told this is exactly what would happen. For months. And now, because of your wilfull ignorance, and racism, families are being ripped apart. My sympathy does not lay with you, it lays with those you turned your backs on.

  6. Gosh, its almost as if voting for a bigoted moron and his coterie of crooked enablers has consequences, if only someone had told them over and over and over and over again how bad an idea that was…..oh, wait.

  7. They’re a special kind of stupid if they voted for 45 – aside from the wall, immigration was a huge part of his campaign. Now they’re saying, “Oops?” What part of the word “illegal” don’t they get? #MAGA 🇱🇷️🇱🇷️🇱🇷️

  8. History-ignorant conservatives shocked that they have to deal with their own feelings when their friends are deported. Yep, voting has consequences. Try not to aline yourself with bigots and xenophobes.

  9. Really? You are shocked when an agency called “Immigration and Customs Enforcement”, enforces federal law concerning illegal immigration? Lol. I know how you feel. The other day my neighbor’s house was on fire and I was completely shocked when the fire department showed up to extinguish it. I just could not fathom why the fire department would be putting fires out. #shocked.

  10. Weird how unselfconscious these voters are about admitting being “short-sighted.” It was obvious to anyone paying attention that this would happen, and yet these folks are surprised.

  11. Unfortunately America is no longer that shining beacon on a hill it aspires to be, it’s more like that crazy neighbor who stands on his lawn in his underwear shouting at kids

  12. Good for him for owning his mistake and shortsightedness, but how can you VOTE and not think ahead to possible consequences? It’s another example of so-called conservatives not caring until it affects them personally. You need to have compassion and caring for strangers too.

  13. I am glad there are posts like this one showing people realizing this is not what they thought would happen, although warnings were given. ICE is going for good people, not criminals – going for taxpayers who work in jobs where we need them. The economics and the social impact is just beginning to sink in – and sink the collective future here in the US. Short- sighted policies are not the best way. The wall and a closed US are negative influences.

  14. First they came for the Communists
    And I did not speak out
    Because I was not a Communist
    Then they came for the Socialists
    And I did not speak out
    Because I was not a Socialist
    Then they came for the trade unionists
    And I did not speak out
    Because I was not a trade unionist
    Then they came for the Jews
    And I did not speak out
    Because I was not a Jew
    Then they came for me
    And there was no one left
    To speak out for me

  15. What about the word “illegal” do you not understand? Laws are passed with due process. They are for everyone. If you break the law, you have consequences. (Our children need to know this).

  16. What the hell is happening over there? I’d like to think that if, god forbid, we were in the same position in Europe, we’d be out on the streets, hammering on the Government’s door ’til they saw sense. God knows what state America’s gonna be in by the time that lunatic has finished playing with it. 😣😣

  17. Years of neglect at the border by Bush and Obama, and now American is reclaiming its borders. The injustices were perpetrated by poor administrations BEFORE Trump. All Trump is doing something that American would eventually have to do.
