Man Gets Awful News About Immigration, 30 Minutes Later He Does The Unthinkable

The contemporary, divisive and ever-changing issue of American immigration and deportation has had further fuel added to the fire on February 21, 2017, after an illegal Mexican immigrant named Guadalupe Olivas Valencia committed suicide after being deported from America for the third time. Mr. Valencia had only been in Mexico for 30 minutes before witnesses heard the man yelling that he intended to commit suicide because he didn’t want to go back to Mexico. The 45-year-old man was found unconscious and severely injured after jumping from a bridge at El Chaparral, a border control point between San Diego and Tijuana. Mr. Valencia later died of his injuries in hospital. Mr. Valenica’s friends and family have openly mourned in several touching tributes, including this heartfelt Facebook post: ‘You left this world, we know that we'll no longer see you physically but in my mind and my heart you will always be present. I know that you're resting in peace’.

After the incident was reported, public outcry was directed towards President Trump and his new administration after it was revealed that the Mr. Valenica’s death occurred on the same day that Present Trump showcased two new memorandums detailing further restrictions on immigration and deportation. The changes would expedite the process of deportation and broaden the reach of the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, allowing them to deport any illegal immigrants on American soil regardless of if they were in immediate danger abroad or hadn’t even committed a crime. One of Mr. Valencia’s friends came to the media after the tragic death of his companion, saying he had seemed ’anxious after being expelled to a city where he knew nobody’.

Division, anger, and malcontent may continue to worsen as President Trump’s new laws have the potential to impact hundreds of thousands of people, many who identify as Americans. The specific reasons for Mr. Valencia’s suicide are unclear. However, police and customs officials have theorized that he was in danger in his home state of Sinaloa which has a staggeringly high rate of homicide with nearly 2000 homicides in January 2017.
