After listening to numerous pro-illegal-immigration statements that were being made by dozens of Democrats that were up for reelection, I decided to launch an independent investigation into the overall effects of deportation since all of the statements that I listened to seemed to be one sided in nature, which speaks of activism. My investigation began right after I learned that a handful of Republicans were also echoing the very same sentiment due to having large immigrant populations within their respective districts.

I traveled to Mexico where I had the unprecedented opportunity to interview three distinct deportees that are still living in Mexico and who never returned to the United States of America after being deported for entering the country without going through the proper channels of immigration that all legal immigrants have gone through out of respect for the laws of the United States of America.

I will conceal the identities as well as the specific location of the deportees who fear political persecution for being candid about their experience and success as deportees. This was the agreement that was made in exchange for the interviews that are sure to be a real eye-opener since they will reveal a side of the illegal immigration discussion that cannot be readily found since most journalists only focus on the deportees that have reentered the country illegally for the third and fourth time.

The interviews are listed below.

Marisol: I am 33 years old and lived in El Monte California for 4 years before I was caught and deported for entering the United States by less than legal means. I was working at a fast food restaurant when I was discovered and deported in 2010. And at first I thought to myself what am I going to do since my husband and two boys are citizens, however, my husband said don’t worry because me and the boys will move to Mexico, so we can continue to be a family. He also said if a husband or a wife truly loves their spouse or kids then they will move to Mexico with them and that all of the talk about separating families is just about getting and keeping votes since the American politicians only care about votes.

What he said made perfect sense to me since the corrupt government officials in Los Angeles and the LAPD tried to protect the illegal gang member that killed the young black boy (Jamiel Shaw, Jr.) that was on his way to college since he was really, really good at football and was also doing good in school. This is crazy because the 17 year old boy that was killed was a citizen of the United States just like my husband and my kids who were angry over the killing since they said Jamiel was killed because he was black. Well, I no longer want to live in the USA since it is a dangerous place and since I started my own restaurant in Mexico which is something that I could not do in America. I started making plans right after I returned to Mexico where I found an abandoned house that my husband painted and attached the electricity and the water to. I turned the house into a thriving restaurant with the care packages and money that my family in America sent me. I make 600.00 US dollars a week which is way more than what I was making in America. Plus my husband found a job at a factory and my kids are going to school which is what I wish my younger brother could have done. We paid the coyotes 5,000 a piece to come to America and they raped me and electrocuted my brother’s genitals right before they shot him in the head shortly after he screamed I love you Marisol. I couldn’t do anything because five guys were holding me while they were torturing my brother right in front of me who was crying and screaming while they were using pliers and a battery and battery cables on him. My heart broke into a million pieces in 2006, but now I love my life in Mexico and visit my brother’s gave often.

Enrique: I am 27 years old and used to live in a small apartment in Anaheim California before I was deported for entering the USA illegally. I was in the US for 6 years and used to work at a movie theater, but now I have a good job working in a clothing factory and my wife and kids visit me monthly since they are citizens of the United States. My wife also sends me money and I live like a king down here as you can see by the way that I am dressed which is way better than many of the Americans that I used to live next to. My shoes are brand new and so are my clothes. Plus 25.00 will buy me enough food to last me for about 2 months. And my rent is only 100.00 a month and I make 60.00 a week at my job that I started working shortly after I was deported in 2013. I have absolutely no plans to return to the USA since I have already saved enough money to pay my rent for the next 10 years. Plus my wife and kids are going to be moving to Mexico within the next 6 months since I am looking at an abandoned house that was left behind by a family that went to work for Taco Bell in the USA. I don’t understand why they left since we have 15 available positions that we cannot fill at the factory since the people are paying coyotes so they can go to America instead of staying here in Mexico where people are creating business every day which is something that we are not supposed to talk to foreigners about but it’s okay since you’re a journalist.

My friend I am happy down here in Mexico because we don’t have any Chicano gangs around here like America. Plus I talk to my wife and kids on Skype and I also own a car and no longer have to worry about catching the bus like I was doing in America. Don’t believe the things that you see on TV because the Mexican Government is run by criminals who don’t care about the people and this is why militias are springing up all over Mexico since the people are tired of the cartels stealing their money and raping their wives and children at gunpoint. We don’t have that problem here since there is no market for the drugs. We are free!

Miguel: I am 48 years old and I moved to Mexico with my three kids in 2016 right after my wife was deported for entering the USA illegally. When I lived in Los Angeles California I was working like a dog and could never get a day off. But after I moved to Mexico I started my very own taxi service and now I work when I want to work. I was born in America to Chicano parents who refuse to visit Mexico since they don’t feel that they have anything in common with the Mexican people since they are Americans through and through and belong to a church that has black pastor that loves them. However, I love being in Mexico since everyone knows me and since I am respected down here since I started my own business from scratch. I simply bought a used car and started letting everyone know that I can take them places for a small fee.

I pick up passengers from the border every day and routinely take people shopping and when I don’t want to work I turn off my phone and take my wife and kids out to dinner. I couldn’t do this in America since they want you to have smog checks and licenses and all kinds of stupid things that stop people from starting a business. The people in America aren’t free like I am they only think that they are just like they think that their kids are getting a good education. I have compared Mexican schools to American schools and American schools are way, way behind. I don’t want my kids educated in the US.  

I conducted the interviews at the beginning of 2017 and fully expected to hear horror stories based on what many of the politicians in America have been saying about separating families by deporting Mexican nationals that have entered the USA illegally, which by the way happens to Haitians on a regular basis even though the Haitians helped America during the Revolutionary war.

The interviews were a real eye-opener since I learned that the Mexican Government is deporting Cubans, Guatemalans, El Salvadorians and Haitian nationals that are trying to make it to America. I was especially surprised when I learned that Mexico has a wall that is designed to keep the Guatemalans and other Central Americans from entering Mexico illegally, however, no one is talking about how Mexico is separating families by deporting Cubans, Guatemalans, El Salvadorians and Haitian nationals. There seems to be a double standard when it comes to African immigrants and Cubans and Guatemalans and El Salvadorians and Haitian nationals. We definitely need more coverage on this particular subject since many of our American politicians and their local police departments seem to be behaving like agents of a foreign power which should make it illegal for them to possess firearms within our borders. The American people must demand answers of their local politicians and police departments if they want the truth behind why these particular individuals will not cooperate with federal immigration and are willing to put the safety and wellbeing of American citizens at risk by giving up federal funding in order to protect those that have entered the United States illegally. We must have the truth.    

I ended my interviews after Marisol said that she cannot wait for the wall to be built in America since it will cut into the business of the coyotes who are paying corrupt politicians on both sides of the border while they are raping and killing innocent victims that are being convinced by the Mexican Government that they must cross the border, so they can send money back to their families since Mexico is not responsible for supporting them since the American people have to give them welfare and jobs.
