ICE deports spouse of U.S. soldier killed in Afghanistan

Source: Arizona Republic

Immigration officials have deported the spouse of a U.S. soldier killed in Afghanistan, leaving the couple’s 12-year-old daughter, Evelyn Gonzalez Vieyra a U.S. citizen, in Phoenix without parents, according to the deported man's lawyer.

Jose Gonzalez Carranza, 30, was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers last Monday on his way to his welding job and then deported to Nogales, Mexico, on Wednesday, said Ezequiel Hernandez, a Phoenix attorney.

Reached by phone, Gonzalez said he has been living in a shelter for deported migrants in Nogales, Mexico, a city he doesn't know, and is worried about his daughter.

Gonzalez was married to Army Pfc. Barbara Vieyra, who was killed on Sept. 18, 2010, while serving in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. She was 22.

12. This is un-real

ANYONE in the military that votes for Trump, (or any Republican for that matter), should see this news item.......

I'm truthfully beginning to worry about us making it through this period..........

Our lives are slowly being chopped away piece by piece, day by day.....

5. We can still take it back. Like Michelle Obama recently said ...


“This may feel like a dark chapter but any story has its highs and lows but it continues. Yes, we are in a low but we have been lower. We have had tougher times, we have had more to fear. We have lived through slavery, the Holocaust and segregation.

“We have always come out at the other end – better and stronger. We are moving in a direction of diversity and inclusion. No-one ever said it would be easy. We are just in the throes of the uneasy path of change.”

6. I know we can, but will we? Will people who value what's good about the US get out and vote?

And vote Democratic? Will Democrats stand together in the long run for whichever candidate wins the primaries?

I guess I just want to still be alive when it happens. The older I get the more discouraged I get about how far we've lowered the bar in my lifetime.

Normally I am an optimistic person. These past couple of years have really been disheartening.

29. I disagree.

The right wing only cares about its belief system. Trump fits in well with it. They will vote him in again.

7. The wages of ignorance, of fear, of hatred.

IF we DON'T rise above this in the coming political cycle, we categorically become the despicable and despised, in league with the many other tyrannical and inhumane regimes that litter history.

11. I think we are at the 1984 point

Cruelty exists just for the sake of cruelty.

I see no rational ideology amongst the republicans other than misery and death.

20. Yes, it's for the "sake of cruelty." It is actually what makes these freaks feel satisfied.

It is not unlike fictional zombies when you think about it. Both groups were once human, but they are now insatiably driven by their needs that results in (live) human suffering.

Rush Limbaugh and Fox News created these living zombies.

15. It seems as though the publicity has gotten him a reprieve

From the link in the OP:
After speaking to The Arizona Republic, Hernandez said he received a call from an ICE officer who told him the agency was making arrangements to allow Gonzalez back into the United States.

Shortly after, Gonzalez was handcuffed at the border crossing in Nogales by Customs and Border Protection officers and allowed into the U.S., Hernandez said. He was then transported to CBP offices in Tucson, he said.

ICE officials then told Hernandez that Gonzalez would be transported back to Phoenix later tonight and then released on his own recognizance, Hernandez said.

ICE reverses decision to deport husband of US soldier after her death in Afghanistan: report

By Michael Burke - 04/15/19 10:58 PM EDT

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has reportedly reversed a decision to deport the husband of a U.S. soldier who died in Afghanistan.

According to the Arizona Republic, ICE last week arrested and deported Jose Gonzalez Carranza, 30, to Mexico, leaving behind his 12-year-old daughter, a U.S. citizen.

By Monday, Gonzalez was back in the United States after ICE reversed on its decision to deport him, according to the newspaper.

His attorney, Ezequiel Hernandez, told the Republic that after speaking with the newspaper, he received a call from an ICE officer who said ICE was arranging to allow Gonzalez back into the country. Officials said he would be transported to Phoenix on Monday night and released on his own recognizance.

But it never should have happened.

Whatever happened to spouses being protected?

26. ICE personnel who carry out orders like this need to be conscripted...

...and sent immediately to the nearest U.S. combat unit. Ditto the people who issue such orders.
