Deportation is the removal of an alien from the United States when they have violated the immigration laws. An immigration judge orders deportation without any additional punishment imposed on the individual other than removal. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement manage this function.

A 37-year old single mother of six children now faces deportation for assisting another mother in illegally smuggling her 10-year old son into the United States.  In an attempt to help bring a family together, this woman may have secured separation from hers, the children are not at risk of deportation because they are American citizens. While they have stated they would want to go with their mother if she is deported, she doesn’t want them being sent to Mexico, the United States is their home. They have never been to Mexico and don’t speak the language. Her children,  Rodrigo, 20, Avelino, 19, Briseida, 16, Samuel, 15, Miguel, 10, and Adan, 8 will all remain here. The two older boys have agreed to raise their young siblings here in the states.

Her deportation could happen within weeks, maybe months, “I’m just trying to stay with my kids because that’s my life. I have faith in God that everything is going to work out for the best. Even though I get deported, he has plans for me and them.” The whole family is full of fear and sadness as they await Friday’s sentencing.
