Two men who were recently deported will attempt to come back to the United States next week to reunite with their loved ones in Arizona. On Tuesday, Jaime Arturo Valdez-Reyes and Ardani Rosales-Lemus, a father of two U.S.-born children, will present themselves at the port of entry in Nogales, Ariz. They will request that their cases be re-opened and that they be granted humanitarian parole.At a press conference held Thursday outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in Phoenix, supporters said both men were deported for organizing within the detention center to stop their deportations. Meanwhile, ICE officials told Voxxi both men were deported because of their criminal records. We are here to say that we are going to bring them home, said Sandra Castro, an organizer for Puente Arizona.Jaime Arturo Valdez-Reyes was deported to Mexico in the middle of the night on Feb. 25. His father, Jose Valdez, was on his ninth day of a 15-day hunger strike staged outside the Phoenix ICE office when he heard the news that his son had been deported. That same night, three supporters of the hunger strike were arrested for refusing to leave private property in front of the Phoenix ICE office, according to Phoenix police. My son is currently in Mexico, but he doesnt have a place to stay other than here in Arizona where his parents are and where he has lived for many years, Valdez told reporters Thursday. In a statement sent to Voxxi on Feb. 26, ICE said Valdez-Reyes was ordered removed by an immigration judge in June 2013. On Feb. 24, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied his request for a stay of removal and he was deported on Feb. 25. ICE also pointed out that Valdez-Reyes had two previous DUI convictions.

Separated families? I wasn’t aware that we prevented people from going to Mexico to visit family. The Mexicans value US citizenship more than family ties I guess.
A backwards people.
Have their families go to Mexico and STAY THERE!
Judge Martell says not just no, but HELL NO. Return to country of origin and apply via legal means.
...the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied his request for a stay of removal and he was deported on Feb. 25. ICE also pointed out that Valdez-Reyes had two previous DUI convictionsSnuck in to the USA and was deported. Snuck in AGAIN and was deported again. You'd think he would get it. Come in legally or stay in your own country. Period.
And now, because you have a criminal record, you must NOT come back to the USA. You are a criminal.
Now of the other guy...
...Ardani was pulled over for a minor traffic violation. He has no criminal charges other than two prior deportations...You get that no criminal record OTHER than being deported twice.Thrown out for being a criminal invading insurgent alien here with out permission, and then came back and was thrown out again.
That should be enough to send him home.
These usurpers whine about their families needing to be reunited.
Take you families and go back to your own countries and make things better there.
Man up and if you really want your families to be together, gather them up and GO HOME! Let's see some respect for your families!
Thank goodness the drunk driver didn't kill anyone yet.
What you said, apply via legal means.
What a slap in the face to legal immigrants of this country that vagrants try to run rough shod over the process.
The comments at another article (discussing the same thing) included some excuses from people saying “Why not apply legally and wait? Well, for one thing it takes too long, for another their applications might not be accepted, better to just come in illegally since things are so bad back in the home country.”
It’s like a person freezing in the cold sees the nice coat on display in the shop window, decides it would take too long to save money to legitimately purchase it, then decides to do a “smash and grab” to get it.

Takes so long because we have more Mexicans than we want or need........

My response to that is: Sounds great; you get to personally go to the home of a husband or wife who is anxiously awaiting their spouse's permission to legally enter the United States and say that you've taken their place, and their spouse won't be coming as you decided to just skip over the border and take their place.
While the rabid liberal will respond that the illegal entry has nothing to do with someone legally entering, their supporters fully understand the concept of cutting in line and drift away. While I understand your example, for a whole lot of people, they understand that a fur coat is being stolen, but don't understand that illegal entries reduce the number of legal entries by making it much harder to raise quotas when you have millions of illegal entries.
That finally brings it home to them.
Good illustration, thanks.
But I might add a couple of examples of declining modern civility about getting in line and waiting one’s turn.
“Mind the queue.”
I’ve been in places where people will “save” places for friends and family just ahead of your place in line.
I’ve also been in places where someone will sidle up next to you and ever so gradually try to assume the place right in front of you.
Also, for public transit there is an “honor queue” where people wait in line for when the doors of the train open, but there’s always a joker or two standing right at the front, to the side of the door, waiting to jump in ahead of everyone else.
With illegal aliens “cutting in line” the point needs to be driven home to honorable people, but there are so many, many people without honor...
