ICE Deports Husband Of Vocal Trump Fan [VIDEO]

CNN reports:

Helen Beristain voted for Donald Trump even though she is married to an undocumented immigrant. In November, she thought Trump would deport only people with criminal records — people he called “bad hombres” — and that he would leave families intact.

“I don’t think ICE is out there to detain anyone and break families, no,” Beristain told CNN affiliate WSBT in March, shortly after her husband, Roberto Beristain was detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

On Wednesday, Beristain was proven wrong as ICE split her family across two countries. Roberto Beristain, 44, was deported back to Mexico despite having no criminal record, family attorney Adam Ansari said.

“He hadn’t committed any crimes. He didn’t even have a parking ticket,” Ansari said. “From everyone’s accounts he is probably one of the most lovable guys you will ever meet. He is a loving husband and father. And he put a lot of work into his restaurant.”

        My father and my grandfather lost their teeth. Poor dental hygiene coupled with smoking habits. That will not be my fate – I don’t smoke, and I floss and WaterPik my teeth. Many of us who admire physical appearance take the mouth for granted, but that can be even more of a turnoff to me than a “soft” body

        • TheThruster

          I hear you. Keeping your teeth clean is as easy as keeping your nails clean. But it seems to be more than some people can handle. Major turn-off!

        • stuckinthewoods

          Agreed. To cut earlier generations some slack, fluoridation wasn’t done, they didn’t have fluoridated toothpaste and WaterPiks, etc. But of course, that was then so no excuse now.

          • Todd20036

            When I was a teen (and I noticed my gums start to pull away from my teeth, I started flossing and using fluoride rinse. My father still had his teeth then, so he had no excuse.
            My grandfather didn’t have waterpiks, but he did have dental floss, so again, he could have done better.
            And people who cannot afford dental insurance better get the WaterPiks. It’s a long term investment on your mouth

          • stuckinthewoods

            I love my WaterPik. I add a bit of chlorhexidine (I use Hibiclens, widely available, bit soapy tasting but not bad). Years ago husband had an implant, was sent home with the Rx mouthwash PerioRx. I noticed the active ingredient was the same chlorhexidine (surgical scrub) that I use rather than deodorant (makes me itch). Waterpiking with it before bed helps with morning breath. I also mix our mouthwash and our dental tech notes she never has much to do.
            (Hibiclens also works well to kill odor causing bacteria on things like workout gloves, shoes, feet, etc. It’s pretty cheap. There are other chorhexidines (pet owners might know Novalsan. That’s half as strong and tastes terrible.)

          • KarenAtFOH

            I asked my dentist for more chlorhexidine after my filling (he had to remove a bit of gum). He said long term use would cause stains on my teeth, and he didn’t think it was a good idea. But it sure made my teeth and mouth feel clean.

          • stuckinthewoods

            Chlorhex inhibits the first stage of plaque formation, the bacterial biofilm called the dental pellicle.
            I’d seen chlorhexidine staining mentioned before I began this. I read it varies between people. Neither of us has had it happen after years of use, in fact I’d say the opposite is true for us. I’ve seen staining mentioned as being due to “dietary chromagens”, or chlorine. (Our water is well water, that is, unchlorinated.) Our hygienist said staining can be polished off but hasn’t remarked on stained teeth. I do dilute it to the same 0.12% concentration as the Rx, meaning, I don’t overdo the concentration. (But I’d read it can temporarily dull your sense of taste so just had to try a “stupid human trick” using the concentrate. Interesting, the salt and umami receptors I’d say.)

            More recent review of flossing shows little actual evidence of any efficacy at preventing gum disease–to the point that it was dropped from official guidelines last year: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/aug/02/dental-floss-proof-works-guidelines-dropped

            Apparently there has never been a good independent study of the practice.

            A Facebook friend of mine recently circulated an old anti-fluoridation diatribe, but it was new to him. As all of us who grew up in the 60s know, fluoridated water is a communist plot.

      In 2000, a federal immigration judge granted him “voluntary departure” for a 60-day period. Because he didn’t leave the United States during that period, his “voluntary departure order reverted to a final order of removal.”

      And yet, by cooperating with ICE officials, Beristain was able to lead a normal life in plain view, one that included a work permit and a driver’s license. He even has a Social Security number that says “Valid only with Department of Homeland Security authorization,”

      Told to leave before he returned legally. Told to get a lawyer. Told he was illegal.

    While I honestly fail to see why ANYONE would vote for Trump, or frankly, most modern-day Republicans, I really don’t get why anyone for whom immigration in any form is an aspect of their life would have voted for him, even if it was only based on what they saw of him in the media.

    • skyweaver

      I agree. Even putting “bad hombres” aside, he said PLENTY of other stuff that was really awful about an entire group of people. My mother teaches immigrants English. She has people who have gotten 3 hours of sleep a night because they are working 2 or 3 jobs, and they are bright and hard-working. They just need a helping hand and someone to see their worth.

      • Ben in Oakland

        We want to deport people who want to work, and keep the people live off the system when they don’t want to work.

  • Dan

    Buy some sunscreen, snowflake. You got what you voted for.

  • Tawdry D’Tails

    Sorry sweetie, but your hubby was low-hanging fruit. Being the successful businessman that he is, trumpie is only concerned about results. That means that he can go to his rallies and brag about the many, many illegals that he’s gotten rid of. “Bad hombres” make an effort to stay out of sight, and catching them would require actual work.

    • Paul David

      That really goes to the core of conservatism over the past few decades: they just assume that the negative aspects of policies won’t ever affect them, just “those” people, which we all know means brown people.

      It’s even more hilarious when a brown person thinks that vocal support of conservative causes equates to being immunized from their racially-based policies.

      Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

      • Which is why I am sick of hearing how people voted for Trump because of economic issues and not racism. Most of them voted because of racism and we should stop pretending otherwise.

        • Paul David

          Throw the Trump voters under the bus.

          “Oh, your husband was deported and you voted for Trump?”

          “Now you’re confused and angry but, given another chance, you’d probably vote for Trump again and would CERTAINLY vote for a different conservative without a second thought?”

          “Yeah, you can go fuck yourself. I’m done empathizing.”

          • I didn’t throw anyone anywhere. *I* voted to help people like her. SHE voted to hurt people like her not realizing that she was hurting herself too. I did what I could to help her. What the fuck do you want me to do now? Feel bad? How does that help her? I empathize plenty but how does that alter her reality in the slightest. I will vote to help her again in 2018 but she won’t. So tell me what else I’m supposed to do to help someone who won’t do what she would need to do to help herself?

          • Paul David

            I agree!

            And let’s just hope that Democrats don’t heed the “oh, but you have to APPEAL to the STRUGGLES of these Trump voters!”

            Which, of course, means giving into their bigoted and generally incoherent ravings.

            No, no, no, no, no.

            The GOP spent decades propagandizing an army of kooks, they are all theirs…the Democrats should not be concerning themselves with “appealing” to this army of frothing-mouth zombies in the hopes of peeling off a few of them for the cause.

          • I’m going to disagree just a little bit. Democrats passed and defend programs that benefit the vast majority of Trump voters. We need to be talking about that and running on that. For example, there was funding for rural hospitals in the ACA that was almost repealed last month. Rural people would have been fucked if that funding went away. Democrats have got to do a better job of selling what they have already done and plan to do for people who voted for Trump and that the Republicans would undo or make worse for them. So in that way, yes we ought to appeal to rural and exurban voters. But no we shouldn’t change our message to suit them. We have a message that benefits them already.

          • Paul David

            That doesn’t work.

            The conservative movement has spent 40+ years building a massive propaganda machine.

            What’s happened is that these people have crawled inside that alternative reality bubble, locked the door, and thrown away the key.

            We will not reach them. Now or ever. It’s time to shove them over the side of the boat.

          • I’m not saying we are going to win over the true Trump supporters. You are right about that. But there are people who voted for Obama who voted for Trump or stayed home in 2016 and we have to get those people to the polls in 2018 and 2020.

          • Paul David

            Fair enough.

          • Paul David

            Oh, and to your statement that “[w]e have a message that benefits them already”:

            Look, that problem with that is that what benefits them also benefits brown people.

            And that is unacceptable for them.

            Give any conservative the choice between (1) having affordable healthcare for themselves and their family that also gives one, single Black person $10 in health care they don’t deserve or (2) burning down the entire health care system, taking their healthcare away but also making sure that thatt one, single Black person doesn’t get that $10 in health services they didn’t deserve, and guess what they would say?

            Ever single one of them would say, in unison: “well, burn the fucker down!”

          • Newcomb

            Pence, as President, is considerably more dangerous than Trump.

            In any case, he should not regarded as a legitimate office holder, because he was part of the same campaign and administration that conspired and colluded with a hostile foreign power to manipulate the ’16 election.

            Similarly, Gorsuch cannot be regarded as a legitimate SCOTUS nominee, and should be impeached and imprisoned as soon as a legitimately elected President takes office. No 5-4 SCOTUS decision with Gorsuch voting in the majority should be observed, accepted or allowed to stand.

    On our side, we have politicians who want to strike down Citizen’s United, even though it will mean they have less money to run their own campaigns. We have politicians who want to raise taxes on the wealthy, even though it means they will personally pay more tax.

    What Republican policies are there that are good for the country, even though they may hurt negatively affect the politician?

      LOTS of paperwork.

      If you are a U.S. citizen you have two ways to bring your foreign spouse (husband or wife) to the United States to live. They are

      Immigrant visa for a Spouse of a U.S. Citizen (IR1 or CR1) – An immigrant Petition for Alien Relative, Form I-130 is required.

      Nonimmigrant visa for spouse (K-3) – It is important to note that application for the nonimmigrant visa for spouse (K-3) who married a U.S. citizen must be filed and the visa must be issued in the country where the marriage took place. After the visa process has been completed, and the visa is issued, the spouse can travel to the United States to wait for the processing of the immigrant visa case. Two petitions are required: Petition for Alien Relative, Form I-130, and Petition for Alien Fiancé(e), Form I-129F.

      Eligibility for Green Card (Permanent Residence) Based on Marriage

      Under the U.S. immigration laws, immigrants who marry U.S. citizens or permanent residents are among the categories of people allowed to apply for green cards.

      If the marriage is to a U.S. citizen, then the immigrant is an “immediate relative,” meaning that an unlimited number of immigrant visas (green cards) are available in that category every year, so the immigrant won’t end up on a waiting list.

      If the marriage is to a U.S. lawful permanent resident (green card holder), then the immigrant is in preference category 2A, meaning there are a limited number of visas every year, so the immigrant will be on a waiting list. But it’s not as long a wait as in some other categories.

      Complicating Factor: Not Everyone Eligible for a Green Card Can Adjust Status and Receive One

      Now for the bad news. Whether the immigrant can “adjust status” — that is, apply for a green card without leaving the United States — depends on whether he or she fits into one of a few narrow exceptions. The immigrant can adjust status only if he or she either:

      legally entered the U.S. with a visa or after inspection by an immigration officer (and wasn’t just using the visa with the intention of applying for a green card based on marriage, which happens to be visa fraud) and is either marrying a U.S. citizen or still on a valid visa, or

      had a visa petition or labor certification filed for him or her several years ago when a law called “245(i)” was still in force.

      If, however, the immigrant entered the United States by unlawful means, such as having been a stowaway or crossing over the border through a fence, adjustment of status is not an option. The only possibility is to apply for the green card through “consular processing,” meaning the immigrant will attend an interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate in his or her home country. That, however, carries a risk of not being allowed back into the U.S. for many years — three years if the period of unlawful presence was 180 days or more, and ten years if the period of unlawful stay was one year or more.

      An immigrant who has lived in the United States unlawfully and then leaves the country for consular processing risks being penalized for the illegal stay by being forbidden from reentering the United States for three to ten years, or perhaps permanently.

And now they’re in panic mode.

        • McSwagg

          The Rio Grande River forms the southern border of Texas, so something about your account of the story sounds fishy to me. Granted, the Feds can’t build the wall down the middle of the river so it has to be set back on the bank. Further, the proposed “right of way” for the wall may run “straight” where the river makes a large loop to the south. This is probably what puts much of her land and her house south of the wall, but not south of the border. That is a distinction that I suspect you missed in the original story.

    “Hadn’t committed any crimes” – not criminal acts, no, but he’d overstayed his visa, which was a violation of immigration policy. Did she really think that wasn’t a problem? We need real immigration reform, and that’s not coming from Trump. His band of megalomaniacs is only interested in feeding the prejudice of the poor white trash that supports him. Real immigration reform would need to include reparations, and an achievable, but tough path to citizenship. You can’t prioritize those who have disregarded our laws over the thousands of people currently working through the system legally. It also needs to take real action against those who employ undocumented workers, enforce fair wage laws for everyone, and handle the issues related to DREAMers. Because of decades of neglect, there are no easy solutions. But rounding up people and putting them in for-profit jails so you can make some money, while feeding the hate of the ill-informed, is certainly not the approach.

    I’m not any sort of expert on immigration, but I though that the spouse of a citizen had a fast track for citizenship, and in the meantime, an even faster track for legal residency.

    Am I wrong, or did they not take advantage of something that they should have?

    Or does it only apply when the non-citizen enters the country either married or on a legal visa and marries while it’s still in force, but not for someone who enters illegally and then marries?

    • Tempus Fuggit

      “Fast” is a relative term in this case. It does not mean “immediate” or anything like it, it just means “not as years-long slow as the other track”. Also, that doesn’t apply to people here illegally.

  • I thought when a non-American married an American citizen they become “legal” too. I must be missing some facts here. Were they just living with each other and not really married?

    • -M-

      People post in more detail below. But basically I think the gist is marrying a citizen let’s you apply for a green card with no waiting list but people who are here illegally aren’t eligible for a green card. He’d have to leave and get his status straightened out before he’d be eligible again.

      • oh, wow, I didn’t know any of that. Thanks for the info.

      • canoebum

        Once you’ve been deported, generally you may not reapply for entry for a period of 10 years. US immigration law is very complicated, unnecessarily so. It is, in fact, broken. Congress has been derelict in its responsibility to address the broken system, purely for their political gain. It is truly shameful. (Republicans have no shame, so we’re stuck with it as is for at least the next four or five years).

    I have only one response to such selfishness:

    I posted this previously:

    I should feel some sympathy.

    Some.

    I feel none. Zero. Less than zero.

    Anybody who voted for Donnie deserves any shit that happens to them. They didn’t care about his being a world-class ass. They didn’t care about his BRAGGING about sexually abusing women. They didn’t care about his acting like a 3-year-old, and calling everybody names. They didn’t care that he is a verifiable liar liar liar. They didn’t care that he knew nothing about policy. They didn’t care that even CONSERVATIVE tax analysts stated that he would destroy the economy.

    But now that Donnie is doing something which impacts them directly? Now? NOW?

    I have only one response to such selfishness:

    Why did she “think” he would deport only the “bad hombres”? He never said that. He made very clear what a despicable person he is and she voted for him, so as far as I’m concerned she can just shut the fuck up and go cry to the other Trump voters who will, if they haven’t already, be negatively affected by Trump and his administration.

    She engaged in wishful thinking and ignored what Trump said on many, many occasions. i have sympathy for the husband, but very little for the wife.

    Bye Gurl, bye. Election night I knew the people most affected by this atrocity would be the people voted for it.

    You voted for Trump. Congrats.

    No pity for her or her family at all.

    Excuse me but the fucking idiots deserve it

  • Tempus Fuggit

    Good. Mrs. Beristain deserves every shred of suffering, heartache, expense, and upheaval she’s brought upon herself. It’s a very happy and rare occasion when stupidity is spanked this way.

    What’s sad and unforgivable is the suffering, heartache, expense, and upheaval she and her ilk have brought upon those of us with functional brains.

  • TexasBoy

    What is amazing, is that all these Trump supporters in non-border states seem to think we in the border states are having all kinds of problems with illegal immigrants. And, in truth, we aren’t. They pay rent, they buy groceries, they pay sales taxes…and contribute to the economy.

  • TampaDink

    I wonder if she has begun volunteering for hair furor’s 2020 bid for reelection.

    • jimbo65

      Or gone to any of his rallies.

      • TampaDink

        As well as making donations to help make hair furor richer again.

  • Bluto

    So does Helen realize now that “bad hombres” refers more to skin tone than criminal activity? Thanks honey, we’re all paying for your stupidity & your cost is especially high.

  • I voted to help people like her and her husband. She voted to hurt others in her situation thinking it wouldn’t hurt her. In short, she’s an idiot. I did my part. I can’t do anything further for now. My feeling bad for her changes nothing. It’s not that I don’t care. It’s that I already did what I could do and she and people like her did the opposite. Now she’s suffering the consequences. I would fix that if I could but sadly she voted to make it impossible to do so. So now it sucks to be her (and her husband). I doubt she learned her lesson either so there’s really nothing I can do about that either. And for those made because I don’t feel bad about her situation: FUCK YOU! I cared in November. I’m all cared out. I will vote again in the next elections and hopefully change things for the better. Elections have consequences. That people don’t understand that is not my fault.

    Oh, and I feel a song coming on (quel surprise):

    If you choose to not follow the immigration law, it will catch up with you eventually.

    If I decided to move into a 24-hour Wal-Mart, I’d do so knowing that eventually they’d discover me sleeping in the bedding section and or giving myself a sponge bath in the men’s room. Then, they’d call security/the police to walk me out and give me a trespass order.

    It’s the same thing.

  • MarkBuster

    Being smug isn’t going to win the next election.. Take the high road.

  • trouble94114

    Oh Helen… you poor, sweet, delicate exception to the rule.

    Sadly, the only person you really have to blame is yourself, for assuming that somehow you and your husband would be “unique” in the eyes of the immigration service, and your husband, for never fully addressing the fact that he was here illegally.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • Orly

    He hadn’t committed any crimes.

    According to Trump and his trumpettes, being in the country illegally IS a crime. Well done dumbass!

  • Oh, Parker
  • Gianni

    “…..she thought Trump would deport only people with criminal records —
    people he called “bad hombres” — and that he would leave families
    intact.” I guess she thought wrong. Perhaps, she’ll now start figuring that one mustn’t put so much faith in what the Loon says. He’s usually just bullshitting you.

    I think we are missing the full story. He has had almost 20 years to apply for citizenship. The question is why has he not gone through the formal process?
