Immigrants are queuing up to get their tattoos removed out of fear that they may be identified because of them and deported out of the country as a result, according to a California-based tattoo removal clinic.

The clinic told local reporters that recently the number of customers visiting them has doubled. Although typically, the stated reason for the removal of a tattoo is to remove the name of a former lover, or to appear more presentable for job interviews, the latest rush has been attributed to fear of deportations under President Donald Trumpís latest policies.

I don't see the problem if your people are here in the US legally.

Doesn't matter. You're still going back anyway, with or without your tattoos.

It seems that once again Yahoo is deliberately blurring the line between legal immigrant and illegal alien. Unless a legal immigrant has a criminal record, s/he doesn't have anything to worry about. It's the illegals that need to be worried. And I agree---removing their tattoos won't do a thing to change their immigration status.

So being fair are we going to see the Asian Mafias members do the same? If we are going to deport Mexican Gang members ,lets deport the other half of the crime cartels.

I wonder if Tony Villar will finally get those gang tats removed that he had on his forearms even when he was L.A.'s mayor.
