Trump Supporter’s Husband Deported

File this under things that make you go “hmm…”.

The Huffington Post Reports that Roberto Beristain is being deported after being in the United States for almost 20 years from Mexico City. He owns a restaurant and has a wife and four daughters. Roberto’s wife, Helen, is a Donald Trump supporter. Helen agrees with Trump’s stance on immigration, but doesn’t understand why her husband is being deported.

A little bit of background on the reason for the deportation. In 2000, the couple was on their way to Niagara Falls and went the wrong direction ending up in Canada. When they came back across the border Roberto was detained and he was told he had 30 days to leave the country. He chose not to and was given a waiver and told if he worked and did not have a run in with the law that he could stay.

Obviously under Presidents Bush and Obama there was not a big push to deport those who had not committed a crime. Enter Donald Trump. Right from the start he promised that he would deport anyone who was not in the country legally. At a rally where he announced he would run for president, Trump stated:

When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. … They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

Trump made it abundantly clear from his statements that any immigrants that did not have the proper paperwork would be thrown out of the country. There was no ambiguity about it. A vote for Trump was a vote for mass deportation. Yet Helen Beristain still voted for Trump and professes to agree with his stance. This makes no sense at all. Are people really dumb enough to vote against their own best interest? Obviously, yes they are. Now we can begin to see why Trump won the election and why many of his supporters are not happy.

Now the family has to pay the piper. You get what you deserve.
