Anonymous man saves family's home after parents are deported
48 replies, posted
An anonymous donor stepped up to help three young siblings living in Bridgeton, N.J., after their parents were deported. The volunteer has offered to pay the mortgage on the house
where the siblings are living as well as other bills for the next two years, CNN reported on Monday, after parents Humberta and Oscar Campos were deported to Mexico around
Christmas last year.
They were forced to leave behind Oscar Jr., Janet and Erwing, who have been struggling to continue paying for the mortgage on their home. CNN wrote about the family in May and
other donations, totaling more than $10,000, have been coming in since the feature. The anonymous donor is also giving the siblings $6,000 for a trip to Mexico to visit their parents.
The Camposes had entered the country illegally more than three decades ago and were deported after their stay of removal was no longer granted. Before their deportation, they
reportedly paid all of their taxes and ran a lawn-care business, which has been temporarily taken over by an uncle.
A spokesman with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to the network that neither parent had a criminal record or broken any laws — except entering the country
"While ICE focuses its enforcement resources on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security, the agency no longer exempts classes or
categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement," an ICE spokesperson told CNN. Oscar and Humberta Campos are now banned from returning to the U.S. for 10 years.
Oscar Campos Jr., 24, has been working as a security guard. Janet Campos, 22, was forced to put her college courses on hold in order to pay for the families' expenses. She will now
be able to restart her classes in the fall, CNN reported.
The youngest, 15-year-old Erwing, can continue focusing on school with the help of the stranger’s support.
Glad to see this wonderful administration getting rid of these criminals and scum. Can't let no illegals make a living and contribute to society. No siree.
One company owner whom my mom's builder knew got deported for a crime he did 18 years ago. Ice was literally following him around and pulled him over when he was out of town. He'd been here for more than 20 years and one battery case from almost 20 years ago got him deported.
Doesn’t take a racist to say “welp, hyuk hyuk, rules is rules” when it comes to breaking up families. Sociopaths on the other hand...
Or simply someone who can't afford to lose their job because they didn't follow an order that would be carried out by someone else if they didn't anyway
The problem is at the top
Nuremberg would like to have a word with you.

How about instead of deporting them you make it easier for people to become citizens?
Something something white genocide.
This is America; the Land of the Few and Home of the bigot. Why would we do that?
Why didn't they get citizenship while they were here? If you're in the country for 30 years, I'm almost half-way expecting you to have found SOME means of getting citizenship.
Why do people always quote this as some sort of catch all?. In this case what they're doing isn't illegal, and getting fired for not doing your job isn't illegal either. Don't get mad at the people doing their jobs in this case, I'm sure there are evil people working in ICE but that's not everyone.
At the end of the day, your morals won't pay your rent. Sure they can probably refuse, get fired, and find another job. But not everyone can do this, it's just not practical.
It's possible they didn't try for fear of being deported because they came here illegally. And it's possible they came here illegally because of problems in Mexico that forced them to leave and the legal way was too slow or not possible at the time. Obviously just guesses because the article doesn't go into those details. But considering the family's only crime in 3 decades was illegal immigration I'm leaning towards it being their only option.
The fucking irony that deporting them almost ended their business and took away jobs.
What Nazis did during WWII wasn't illegal under Nazi Germany law, either. And yes, refusing would result in hardship, but isn't sacrifice defined by hardship?
these stories have gotten to the point that i legitimately would not want to be brown when ICE is grabbing the guy across the street
Only in America is enforcing border law immoral.
Labeling people who want people to immigrate legally 'white supremacists' and 'racists' is ridiculous .
Yeah but the Nazi's were committing genocide, and ICE isn't the SS. They're deporting people to their country of origin, not sending them to death camps. don't overexaggerate the situation. Is it wrong yes, but it's in no way comparable to Nazi Germany.
Not even a page in and Godwin's Law is already in full effect.
Well people further south have dark skin tone, speak another language and are deported for no other reason than "entered illegally" despite being quite functional in society for 30+ years can only boil down to closeted racism. We have not tried on a massive scale to teach people to be tolerant of others (namely those who look different, speak differently, and live differently) in most public schools throughout our history so let's not pretend racism/white supremacy doesn't exist and has absolutely no effect on the situation.
is this the part where this thread becomes 10 pages long when everyone explains that these new border laws are being used to target people of asylum, who by law are able to reside in the country, regardless if they immigrated in legally or not?
TBH, I dont think its a good idea to label every average joe who supports this an outright racist, simply because the media in general is doing such a bad time putting actual facts out that people who dont follow news religiously (or at least more than a 5 minute glance at morning TV news before heading to work) may not be aware of the current circumstances.
Not really. US immigration law sucks ass and if you immigrated illegally like these people did then try to get citizenship legally afterwards you likely to totally screw yourself over.
STEP FUCKING ONE WAS DEMONIZE A FACTION THAT WASN'T ACTUALLY CAUSING PROBLEMS
Did you learn fucking NOTHING in school. This was how it started, almost play by fucking play.
Immigrants are, in NO GODDAMN WAY, responsible for the myriad of problems we are facing as a country. That was all American conservative bullshit.
If you weren't a mod you'd probably be banned for flaming for posting like this tbh. Probably best to take a break, mate.
It's a completely valid analogy to prove that legality isn't an argument for morality
What about that post is flaming? Asking if someone "learned fucking nothing in school" is not a direct personal insult. And that's kinda a prerequisite for flaming.
but it is fair they came illegally that is not fair, if i want to go to Canada illegally and i get kicked out you dont see people here complaining
how do you even compare people getting deported to FUCKING GENOCIDE, like Jesus Christ there a fucking major gap between those do some research.
Some people have their fingers so deep in their ears it affects their synapses. The Holocaust didn't happen overnight. It was several years of chipping away at democratic institutions and ruthless enforcement of discriminatory laws. It's called the banalization of evil. A slow degeneration of morality and ethics that eventually leads to genocide.
I'm giving you Bad Reading, not because you can't read text, but because you can't read things happening in front of you. Of course we aren't at full-fledged Holocaust, but you have to be pretty damn ignorant to not at least acknowledge that we are filling the shoes quite nicely for 2018.
Do you really believe this is going to lead to mass executions of Mexicans?
Also, I live in that town in the article, was not expecting to ever see this little piece of dirt on the news here
...that's exactly what I was saying though lol
Well, sorry about that then. I thought you were making an implication that people were over-exaggerating the problem.
But you are correct then, I misread. Curse me with 1000 Bad Readings.
