But he has a shoplifting arrest! Clearly a Really Bad Dude.

Donald Trump is a caring, caring guy. Remember how he said his heart just breaks for kids who were brought to the USA by their parents when they were little, and who love America and want to stay here? As Trump said in an ABC interview in January, DREAMer folks wouldn’t be in any trouble, heck no:

They shouldn’t be very worried. I do have a big heart. We’re going to take care of everybody […] Where you have great people that are here that have done a good job, they should be far less worried.

Homeland Security Secretary Jim Kelly even issued guidelines to ensure that people registered under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would only be deported if they commit criminal offenses. Oh, except mere “guidelines” don’t matter under the New Cruelty: On February 17, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers deported Juan Manuel Montes, a 23-year-old man registered with the DACA program, because he didn’t have his wallet or his DACA papers with him when he was questioned by a Border Patrol officer. He asked for the chance to go get his papers from the car, but hell no, boy, this is the New Cruelty you’re looking at here:

Montes was twice granted deportation protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created by President Barack Obama and left intact by President Trump.

Montes had left his wallet in a friend’s car, so he couldn’t produce his ID or proof of his DACA status and was told by agents he couldn’t retrieve them. Within three hours, he was back in Mexico, becoming the first undocumented immigrant with active DACA status deported by the Trump administration’s stepped-up deportation policy.

You don’t have your papers, you’re a Really Bad Hombre, and off you go. Lawyer? That paper you signed gave us permission to throw you out without any lawyer.

The National Immigration Law Center is working to help Montes, who is now living with his aunt and uncle in Mexico. NILC says Montes wasn’t provided any written information on why he was being detained or deported, and is suing Homeland Security to force it to release details of Montes’s arrest and deportation. To make matters worse, Montes also has a cognitive disability resulting from a brain injury. Or from the Border Patrol’s perspective, he’s the perfect target, because he was less prepared to make a fuss or defend his rights. Even though Montes told the CBP officers about his DACA status, they didn’t especially care, because they had them a Mexican to deport. He was taken to a Border Patrol station, asked to sign some papers and immediately sent to Mexico.

Montes says he was confused when he was arrested in February:

“They detained me, they took me to a center, they asked me a lot of questions, and I signed a lot of papers,” he said.

Montes said he couldn’t understand anything he was signing and was not given any copies. Officers walked him to the U.S.-Mexico border and released him into Mexicali.

He also didn’t do his own case much help after that: After being dropped off in Mexico, he planned to stay with a friend — who even drove across the border to get Montes’s wallet and some clothes for him. Before he could meet up with the friend again, Montes says, he was jumped from behind, robbed, and beaten, at which point he panicked and decided to head for home, joining a group of people climbing a fence over the border. He was almost immediately arrested and sent back to Mexico, so now he’s a dangerous illegal border crosser, one of those likely rapists or murderers Donald Trump warns about. Never mind that if he’d had his papers with him, he shouldn’t have been deported in the first place.

Mind you, Montes is No Angel. He was convicted on a misdemeanor charge of shoplifting in January 2016, and also has three arrests for driving without a license. So clearly, combined with that panicked fence jumping, he’s one of those Bad Hombres we need to be terrified of. According to CBP guiidelines, those convictions are not serious enough to void his DACA protection, although his re-crossing the border after his dubiously legal deportation may do the trick. Not a great person who’s done a good job. No big heart for him. Plus, you know, he’s kind of slow. Do we want people with brain injuries to have rights anyway?

Oh, and would you believe Homeland Security is now lying about Montes’s DACA protection? A statement from CBP to NBC News claimed his DACA status “had expired in Aug. 2015 and he was notified at that time,” although his lawyers have copies of his current DACA paperwork showing he’s eligible to work in the U.S. until 2018. The Border Patrol statement focused on what a hardened criminal Montes is, saying he had a “conviction for theft for which he received probation” (shoplifting, theft, whatever. Maybe he knocked over a jewelry store). And then there’s his malicious panic the night he was deported:

Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez was apprehended by the Calexico Station Border Patrol after illegally entering the U.S. by climbing over the fence in downtown Calexico. He was arrested by BP just minutes after he made his illegal entry and admitted under oath during the arrest interview that he had entered illegally.

Bad Dude. Threat to America. Taking our jobs (OK, learning welding at a trade school, but maybe he would have attacked old ladies with a welding torch. You never know with these people).

Montes at least has the support of the immigration lawyers’ group, and his case has also attracted attention of prominent politicians. Illinois Senator Dick Durbin is righteously pissed, saying in a statement,

Just last month Secretary Kelly promised me that no one with DACA would lose this protection unless they violated the terms of DACA. I intend to hold him to this commitment[.]

Unfortunately, Montes’s story has also been noticed by far less decent members of Congress, too, like white nationalist congressman Steve King of Iowa, who was perfectly tickled to see that the Border Patrol ignored Donald Trump’s supposed sympathy for people registered under DACA. Yesterday, the alleged human being Tweeted acharming message:

Excellent catch, Border Patrol! You got a brain-damaged, learning-disabled guy to sign papers he didn’t understand so you could toss him out of the country he considered home! It’s police work like that that’s going to Make America Great Again! Next, let’s go after some people with Down Syndrome or autism, huh? Beer for all!

    The New Immigration Colossus

    Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
    Very bigly, magnificent, without shame,
    With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

    Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
    A mighty white woman with a torch, whose flame
    Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
    Mother of Exiles, — but not Syrian nor Muslim nor Bad Hombres fanning out across the land.

    From her beacon-hand
    warns those who are not welcome; her copper eyes command
    Ground zero where controlled demolition is to blame.
    “Keep in your ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

    With silent lips. “Give me your Europeans, your rich,
    Your huddled Slavic prostitutes yearning to go pee,
    Keep the wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send not these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    For I lift my lamp beside the golden shower door!”

        From what I could tell, he somehow had gotten confused with the application for citizenship. These people make my brain bleed.

      That sounds a lot like those concentration clubs Sean Spicer spoke about.

      • Poorly Behaved Pérsistanista

        “Holocaust Centers.” I think they were a lot like Costco, not just anybody can go, you have to be a member “register” and become a member.

        • BearDeLaOursistance

          At least they have chip cards now instead of arm tattoos…

    • HazooToo

      Blatantly obvious that none of us has learned anything at all from WW1 or WW2. Fascism, nationalism, and denial of refugees in many countries. It’s fucking shameful.

      • Bemused Australian

        An Australian journalist can be imprisoned for receiving information about crimes or abuses committed in these camps, even if they don’t publish it. Anyone who works in the camps can be imprisoned if they pass on information about what goes on there. It’s fucking vile, and both of our major political parties are in favour of this.

        • HazooToo

          WHY?! How could anyone possibly be in favor of a dark gulag which has no oversight or accountability, and being curious about it could land you in prison?!

          • Bemused Australian

            Would you believe that it’s in the best interests of the dispossessed, and that anyone who disagrees wants to kill children because they will drown on their way to Aus?

          • HazooToo

            Sure, unless you put them on a bloody boat and let them the fuck IN. Jesus Christ! What the fuck is WRONG with those people?!

          • Alan

            Particularly odd coming from an entire country descended from the dispossessed.

          • Erala Contratista

            With convictions.

          • Alan

            That too.

      Aaaaand shared to his Twitter post.

  • IOnlyLikeCats

    This is going to take a while for my brain to process. In the meantime I’ll be shrieking into a paper bag over in that corner.

    • Crystalclear12

      Do you have an extra bag?

      • Jeffery Campbell

        Sorry, mine is full of Jamesons. I had to run out and replenish. I’m just staying drunk all day.

  • Rags

    You don’t need to be a perfect angel to be key to protecting our rights. Ernesto Miranda is an excellent example.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Deportation – it’s the new discount eugenics. And shit, if they can deport a dreamer for not having his papers on him at all times, I’m betting any Mexican-looking people are next, American citizen or not.

    • cmd resistor

      I heard an interview the other day with a guy who had written a book about eugenics in the early 20th century and how it connected with and was basis for more restrictive immigration laws. I was sad to hear that the Nazis got some of their ideas from that same movement.

      Aaaaargh is right. They should let the cows vote.

  • Bitter Scribe

    What kind of depraved asshole would gloat about a harmless fellow human being having his life completely disrupted for no reason at all? And what kind of pig-ignorant fuckwads would vote for him?

    • cmd resistor

      He might be getting Worst Person in the WOrld Award for the day, although the day is young.

      • BearDeLaOursistance

        I thought we gave him that on a year-by-year basis, to save on all that fancy paper.

        • cmd resistor

          So many contenders, you can only get them all in if you do one a day.

    • OrdinaryJoe

      What kind of asshole? A neo-Nazi congrassholeman from Iowa.

  • OrdinaryJoe

    Shame on you Steve King. Shame on you. “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Jesus.

    • cmd resistor

      That would be Fake Jesus, not Republican Jesus.

  • PubOption
    • NastyBossetti

      WTF? Why did they come looking for him? It says he was taken from his home.

  • Bemused Australian

    Decriminalise and regulate as a pathway to legalise and integrate. You can’t deport half a percent your population, that would be madness.

  • VirginiaLady

    I hope he gets better and just results like being brought back home and never bothered again, than the nonjustice we are handing out to our Russian operatives currently in American government. Sad.

  • JohnBull

    And Steve King’s supporters wonder why young people don’t stay in western Iowa.
    Really, they genuinely can’t figure it out.

    • Alan

      They apparently don’t go out much.

    • Latverian Diplomat

      Turns out, “Children of the Corn” isn’t a viable long term strategy.

  • Cranky Man

    Well thank the FSM, I’ll sleep soundly now that the most pressing security problem our great nation faced has been taken care of. What’s that you say? Starting a war with who? North Korea? I picked a bad week to give up rum.

  • calliecallie

    I saw a retweet of the Steve King tweet yesterday and had no idea what he was going on about. Asshole.

    • cmd resistor

      I’m sure his issue is that he would have gotten the valedictorian slot at his high school but was bumped by some illegal. Not.

      • Latverian Diplomat

        Valedictorians are some of “the good ones”. Salutatorians on the other hand, I never trust them.

        • cmd resistor

          Losers.

  • BearDeLaOursistance

    Unfortunately, I’ll have to stay silent, as even a citizen can get deported for violating the (Non)Commenting Rules. I hear they Zoom you right across the border.

  • Alan

    Mr. King seems nice.

  • Latverian Diplomat

    Ordinarily, I’d say Border Patrol was a pretty thankless job, but
    a) They seem to be chock full of assholes
    b) They do get thanked, by other assholes

    • ahughes798

      Cops are cops.

      • phoenix00

        Rejected cops, from the looks of things.

        • ahughes798

          They could get a job in the CPD in a flash. They could use passenger videos as their audition tapes.

          • phoenix00

            To be fair, those were actually aviation police and not CPD, even though they are still legally accountable to the City of Chicago.

          • ahughes798

            That’s what I meant…they could join the CPD in a flash, if they wanted to, and use this as their audition tape.

  • Can we deport the Border Patrol for activities un-American?

    • phoenix00

      I’ll settle for deporting Steve King.
