I am surprised they're holding a white guy. But these kind of charges from when he was a teenager? Ridiculous. I thought they were going to focus on violent gangs?

Regarding the doc, I think two things ... 1., this is totally in the press due to the landscaper from Detroit (who was here illegally and NOT a green card holder) who was deported. And 2., there is something missing from this story.

Why not tell the whole truth?

According to Kalamazoo County court records cited by MLive, Niec also pleaded guilty in 2008 to operating impaired by liquor. After he completed probation, the conviction was set aside, the plea withdrawn and the case dismissed. He was also charged with domestic violence in 2013 and a jury found him not guilty after a trial, MLive reported.
So, DWI and domestic violence-as an adult. Honestly, I have no problem with him facing a deportation hearing. As long as he had been here, he should have stepped up and applied for citizenship. As a legal alien resident, he, and anyone else, has to be spotless with regards to criminal behavior-or send them home. Yes-even if it's a white guy! Being allowed to immigrate to this country, and to stay as a resident alien, is a privilege, not a right. He abused the privilege.

Why are you surprised that they are holding a white guy? Illegal aliens have been deported back to 189 different countries.

He is surprised because that doesn't fit the race narrative constructed by the left/pop media.

And it turned out that the landscaper had a criminal record, felony, for selling drugs and previous to that he had legal status, but committing a crime, well, a legal immigrant that commits crime is eligible for deportation. He spent years trying to get out of it, but in the end he lost. Obama gave him a stay which he should not of and with Obama gone, the landscaper already have an order of removal based on his felony, all gone! And, I suspect there is again "more to the story" with this new one. They really need to "vet" their boo-hoo stories.

Exactly. Lawlessness/crimes earn them the deportation boot!

They think illegal alien is a race of people, mostly because most of them are "brown". Neither "brown" nor "illegal alien" is a race of man. If "ignorance is bliss" they must smile the whole day long and in their sleep!

I just hope once the illegals are expelled from the country that there will be time/money to actually educate our citizen children about the history of man, American government, economics, etc.

Default Polish Doctor Living in the U.S. for 40 Years Detained by ICE

No immigrant is safe, legal or illegal.

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/...r-charges.html

A Polish doctor who has lived in the U.S. for nearly four decades has been jailed and faces deportation for two decades-old misdemeanor charges, the Washington Post reports.

Lukasz Niec, who was arrested on Tuesday morning, is a lawful permanent resident who has lived in Michigan since childhood and has an American wife, daughter, and stepdaughter, his sister told the Post. He does not speak Polish and has no family there, she said.

In the past, immigration officials have prioritized the deportation of immigrants with a history of violent crimes. Immigration and Customs Enforcement under the Trump administration, however, has shifted its priorities, sweeping up a broader group that more frequently includes low-level offenders and those without criminal records.

I dont understand why he didn't obtain citizenship in his long years being here, especially being a doctor.

Well, we all know, anyone is subjected to deportation if someone commits a crime under a green card.
