Trump supporter’s husband getting deported despite being a ‘model resident’

Published

An Indiana woman who voted for President Donald Trump last year is trying to stop Immigration and Customs Enforcement from deporting her husband.

Indiana Public Media reports that Roberto Beristain — a resident of Granger, Ind., and owner of the popular Eddie’s Steak Shed restaurant — is scheduled to be deported on Friday despite pleas from both his family and local government officials.

Beristain tells IPM that “he came to the United States from Mexico City illegally in 1998,” but “later obtained documentation to work in the country and checked in with ICE each year.” Beristain was detained in February during one of his regular check-ins with ICE, despite the fact that the agency had known of his immigration status for more than a decade and, up until that point, had done nothing.

Beristain’s wife, Helen, says that she voted for Trump in November because she supported his policies on deporting undocumented immigrants. However, she tells IPM that she never expected her own husband to be caught up in a deportation wave.

““[Trump] did say the good people would not be deported, the good people would be checked,” she explained.

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of nearby South Bend, Ind., has been working to stop Beristain’s deportation, as he says the restaurant owner has been a “model resident” during his time in Indiana.

MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski went off on an extended diatribe on Donald Trump and the White House for attempts to smear the reputation of Dr. Anthony Fauci based upon a report from NBC News.

According to the NBC report, "The White House is seeking to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's leading infectious disease expert, as President Donald Trump works to marginalize him and his dire warnings about the shortcomings of the U.S. coronavirus response."

Using that as a jumping-off point, the "Morning Joe" host called the president "pathetic," and blamed the massive and resurgent spread of the coronavirus solely on the president's bungling of the government's response from day one.
