The two idiots in this story, the parents, are the very definition of stupid.

Such a shame that an otherwise law abiding, productive illegal immigrant was deported. Hopefully he can get some waiver asap and be reunited with his family. Mr. Trump spoke about uniting the country and getting rid of bad hombres but this is a huge slap in the face. He might have won this battle but the struggle for sensible immigration reform will continue.

Uniting the country by enforcing the laws and being done with those that can't follow them. Any citizen breaking a law isn't let off because they have only broken one law. "Well, judge, other than this crime, my client has been law-abiding." Geesh!

^^^^Exactly!

I don't think it's hard to understand that the term "law-abiding illegal alien" is an oxymoron. Illegal aliens have no business being in another country illegally. Just as this man had no business being here illegally, I would have no business being in Mexico illegally.

What is "a slap in the face" is legal immigrants who obeyed our immigration laws and patiently awaited their turn to come here seeing illegals get away with breaking our immigration laws.

"Sensible immigration reform" is just a euphemism for amnesty. We tried that in 1986 with dems making promises that it would be the one and only amnesty to ever happen (We have had several stealth amnesties since then), the border would be secured (No such thing ever happened) and that no illegals would ever be able to work in this country (We currently now have 8 million no-match SSNs in the workforce).

Once again---and this bears repeating---"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

No so-called "immigration reform" is needed. What is needed is to fully enforce our immigration laws.

What I do not understand is any good immigration attorney worth their salt likely could have had his removal proceedings administratively closed, and then they could have filed for adjustment of status

He had the opportunity to address this 17 years ago BEFORE he even had a family, before he owned a business, when he was a new ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT. All he had to do was to leave the country for 60 days -- but he choose to ignore it, hang around and prosper as an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT. Tough noogies muchacho.

I knew a lady who stayed in Mexico illegally for 10 years. She bought a place, had a business there. Guess what? Someone got angry at her and told on her. She was out of there in days, and they took her property.

The world is not your oyster. I keep reminding people of this. If it was we'd all be going to what ever country we wanted and just hanging there for as long as we felt like it.
