Even Though This Woman Voted For Trump, This Is Happening To Her Husband

A woman voted for President Donald Trump because she agreed that 'bad hombres' needed to be deported. She never imagined that her husband, an illegal immigrant, would be counted among one of those hombres. To her dismay, her husband was arrested and faces deportation.

Roberto Beristain arrived in the U.S. in 1998, and he never left. Soon after, he met and married Helen, an Indiana woman, and the two took a trip to Niagara Falls. The accidentally went over Canadian border. Beristain was discovered to be an undocumented immigrant, and he was ordered to leave the country.

Because his wife was pregnant at the time with their first child, he didn't go. Instead, he obtained a legal work permit, Social Security card and driver's license. He's been calling to check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) once per year, every year.

The Beristains built a life together, and Roberto became a model citizen. He worked at Eddie’s Steak Shed, and eventually bought the business. The couple bought a house, had more children and were very happy.

Helen voted for President Trump because she agreed with reasonable immigration laws being enforced. “We don’t want to have cartels here, you don’t want to have drugs in your high schools, you don’t want killers next to you,” she said to the Indiana Public Media. “You want to feel safe when you leave your house. I truly believe that. And, this is why I voted for Mr. Trump.”

Helen never realized that because Roberto had ignored an order to leave the country 17 years ago, he was at risk for deportation himself. When he checked in with ICE this year, they arrested him. Helen feels let down. “[Trump] did say the good people would not be deported, the good people would be checked,” she lamented.

Helen says her husband is now applying for a green card and hopes he will be returned to his family. Helen and the kids are also planning a 'long vacation' to Mexico to be with him in the meantime.
