Indiana Trump supporter’s husband gets deported to Mexico

Published

on

Roberto Beristain, an undocumented immigrant whose American wife voted for Donald Trump last year, has been deported to Mexico.

Local news station WSBT reports that Beristain was deported on Tuesday night, weeks after his case rose to national attention.

Beristain, who was a resident of Granger, Ind., and owner of the popular Eddie’s Steak Shed restaurant, was deported despite pleas from both his family and from local government officials, who lauded him as a model citizen who never broke any laws.

Even though Beristain came to the United States illegally in 1998, he later obtained documentation to legally work in the country while regularly checking in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Beristain’s wife, Helen, last month told Indiana Public Media 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.

Joseph Bondy, the attorney for Parnas, was interviewed Friday evening by Rachel Maddow, following the day's end of the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.

"I’ve never seen a lawyer sit on a cable panel show and make that much news," Luppen wrote.

Democratic prosecutors wrap up case against Trump

Published

on

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
