In Detroit, Michigan, officials with ICE have deported longtime resident and immigrant rights activist Jorge Garcia. Video filmed by the immigrant rights group Michigan United shows Jorge Garcia sobbing as he hugs his wife Cindy and two children during an emotional goodbye on Monday, as Garcia prepares to board a one-way flight to Mexico. Supporters of the Garcia family silently look on, holding signs reading “Stop Separating Families.” Jorge Garcia was brought to the U.S. as a 10-year-old child in 1981, making him too old to qualify for a deferment under DACA.
