For you to cheer ripping families apart in this manner in the name of deporting so called 'criminals' makes me want to puke.
She was convicted of Felony Identity Theft and ordered to leave the country during Obama's reign. Since you appear to be a Liberal that cannot think rationally, I'd ask you, is she here Legally or Illegally?

The answer is Illegally and with her Felony conviction she was deported as she should have been. There's not any in between, sorry if that doesn't make you feel all warm and fuzzy, but it's the Law. Do you believe in the rule of Law or not?

This is a perfect example of how the Obama administration kicked the can down the road and the Trump administration picked up the can and put it where it belongs.

I don't think it will effect Metro Atlanta at all. The MA has the highest influx of people coming from other parts of the US and usually their citizens looking for cheaper cost of living. If I was still in NYC I would be very worried about potential loss of workers.

And a big thanks to Trump for finally laying down the law!

Will it make a difference in GA population? Certain areas, yes, but overall not so much.
President Trump didn't "finally lay down the law." President Obama's administration deported over 2.5 million folks during his two terms. Here's a link to an ABC News report: Obama Has Deported More People Than Any Other President - ABC News

AJC already covered this last week. The largest area of Illegal Immigrants in Georgia is in the greater Roswell area which there are estimated to be 250k. That isn't a significant number like some other cities have so I don't think even mass deportations would impact Atlanta like it would other cities like say Los Angeles etc.

Curious to know what you think about our criminal justice system that rips apart American Families every single day by sending a Mother, Father (or both) away to Prison/Jail oftentimes for victim less crimes or for crimes that have unfair or skewed sentencing guidelines. These people broke the law and have to do jail time even though they are American citizens but it isn't fair to to do the same for people who are here Illegally AND breaking the law?

Is that what you are telling me? That it is a-OK in the name of Justice to break up American families though our court system but it ISN'T OK to do the same for people who are here Illegally?

Exactly! Instead of spending up to 15 years in a US prison for Felony Identity Theft, she was given a bus ride back to Mexico where she is free and her kids are also free to visit or move to Mexico if they wish. Sounds like she got off easy if you ask me...

Yep. It's highly unlikely Trump will deport as many people as Obama.

What he is doing is driving people underground. It'll be interesting to see the effects on construction, landscaping, farming, food service, restaurant and hospitality businesses, healthcare and other areas where immigrants have been playing a major role in the economy.

You don't know me. Don't think you can assume anything about me, k?

But no, I find these laws abhorrent as well - in most cases. Especially pot-related crimes and minimum sentencing laws.

No, it isn't what I'm telling you. See above.

Oh cry me a damn river. You could care less about the laws ronricks posted, it just handily fits your hate-filled narrative at the moment. Besides, your President Bannon & his new AG Bubba Beauregard are vehemently anti-marijauna. Things will only get worse in the near term, I'm afraid.

How about you focus your outrage on the daily carnage happening in the hub of your own Metro.
