Summer of deportations
A Mexican coffee farmer in Hawaii was deported after living in the U.S. for 28 years
Facing deportation, Andrés Magaña Ortíz, Hawaii coffee farmer, father of three returns to Mexico after 28 years.
The deportations of permanent residents have not stopped. A prominent Mexican coffee farmer in Hawaii, whose deportation fight turned him into a symbol in the debate over U.S. immigration policy, has returned to Mexico after losing a legal battle to remain in the United States.
Andrés Magaña Ortíz, who was called "a pillar of the community" by the federal judge, said goodbye to his wife, an American citizen, and three U.S.-born children on Friday night, then boarded a flight bound for Mexico, the country he left as a teenager nearly three decades ago in the hands of human traffickers, Hawaii News Now reported.
This story is one of many across the country. Not even Hawaii is safe. Don't let people we know get deported. Become a citizen today or get your friends and family to become U.S. citizens before they are gone!
Now is not the time to be complacent and relaxed. They came for my neighbor and I did nothing. Then they came for me, but it was too late.
Is Resistence time.
