A Mexican man who spent almost two decades living in the United States was deported back to his home country on Tuesday April 4, separating him from his US-born wife, who voted for President Donald Trump.

Roberto Beristain, 43, had been in custody since he was detained on Feb. 6 during a routine check-in with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. After spending almost two months in detention centers across six states, the Indiana resident was suddenly taken alone to Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua in northern Mexico, as he said in a statement released by his attorneys, who had filed legal petitions requesting his release.



“They suddenly told me it was time to go,” Beristain said. “They told me to get my stuff, they put me in the back of a van, and sped toward the border.

“They took me to another facility while in transport to sign paperwork. I asked to speak with my attorney, but was told there wasn’t time for that. At around 10:00 pm, I was dropped off at the Mexico-US Border and walked into Mexico.”

His representatives had previously said they feared Beristain would be deported earlier that month.
