WaPo has dropped a tear-jerking story that will be sure to tug at the collective heartstrings of those that reside in the liberal echo chamber. There’s a good chance that those that do not suffer from that affliction will see things differently.

A pair of brothers from Gaithersburg, Maryland have been deported to their native El Salvador. They’ve reportedly been in the country illegally since 2009, but they have been able to receive reprieves from deportation since then.

As The Washington Post shares, “the brothers were detained by ICE agents in Baltimore after a regular check-in.”

They were deported soon thereafter, and the family’s attorney claims it’s the “fastest deportation process he has ever seen.”

WaPo is sure to grab a quote from one of the boy’s former teachers, who noted “These kids did nothing wrong — but that is too low a bar. These kids excelled.”

One of the brothers, 19-year-old Lizandro Claros Saravia, is apparently an exceptional soccer player, and he would’ve had a free ride to a two-year college as a result.

Lizandro was deported along with his brother, Diego

Nick Katz, senior manager of legal services at CASA de Maryland, is representing the pair, and he claims that’s why the brothers were shipped out so fast.

“The ICE agents told me they were deporting the kids because Lizandro got into college, and that showed they intended to stay in the U.S.,” Katz says, according to WaPo.

Not so fast, says Matthew Bourke, a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement: “They were issued a final order of removal by an immigration judge in 2012. That’s why they were removed,” he said.

That makes things seem pretty cut and dry, and it really should be the end of the story. However, WaPo wasn’t going to rest without jerking as many tears as possible.

“They have separated my family,” the mother of the deportees is quoted as saying – at a press conference, of course.

  • Good. Sick of people talking about what they did after they came here illegally. It’s like “Look at the great things I did with the stolen money”.

  • Ms.rainman

    Send her with them. I’m all in favor of keeping families together. Just not here.

  • rascallyrabbit

    So why aren’t the parents gone too?

  • Jane Wilson

    I’m sure there was some great AMERICAN CITIZEN who could have used that scholarship.

    • tryoder1366

      America, and Americans First! ..

  • MizRispee

    Why was mom able to give a news conference — she wasn’t deported?

  • findthetruth808

    “Fastest Deportation ever”? Not fast enough mr attorney. And not complete enough if other illegals in the family are stii here.

  • Mom can GTFOH too.

  • Rob Patriot

    If 5 years is the fastest deportation he’s ever seen, we really need to fix that system. Six months tops, with an asylum claim and hearing and appeal.

  • Geoffrey Howe

    So, the two were otherwise responsible citizens who were highly skilled? Well then, that’s exactly the kind of people RAISE wants to bring into the country legally!

    Every time someone tries to paint a sob story over a deportation, and use the immigrants skills as a reason they should be allowed to stay… remind them that under RAISE, they’ll be perfectly capable of getting in legally, and more easily than before, when they had to compete with every random person in a lottery.

  • John Ward

    Deport any and all illegal now! Bring back “Operation Wetback”. It worked well in the 1950s and it would work today if properly implemented. Build the wall.

    • Michael Carey

      IF we were to deport all illegal aliens all at once, it would create a huge, temporary, clusterfuck. There are so many businesses depending on illegal alien help…they’d be crippled until they could hire enough legal help to get their staff back to workable numbers. A lot of businesses would probably go under if they’ve been paying all their help less than minimum wage.

      • John Ward

        A lot of supposition and conclusions drawn on your part. Obviously now was a relative term. Those business that have been knowingly hiring illegals deserve to go under.

      • Chesapeake

        Too bad. They should have considered the consquences when they hired them and have money set aside for the fines.

      • cyran

        they would also be forced to hire people at competitive wages.

      • John Smith

        Nobody is dependent upon illegal aliens as labor.
        We could deport EVERY SINGLE anchor baby, their criminal parents and the only places suffering would be the criminals who employed them.
        Those companies should all be shut down anyway.

        • smdh

          Agree. You would be surprised who some of these companies are too.

      • tryoder1366

        Any business that hire illegal aliens, should be prosecuted, heavily fined and in severe cases shut down, period! ..

      • G.A. ‘Bear’ Millsaps

        Great hypothetical but do you actually see it being even remotely feasible??

  • Shannon Yaw

    So everybody is crying because they were told back in 2012 to get their shit together or get out! Well they had all this time, and the parents had all this time to do what needed to be done. They chose to ignore it! Well this is what happens to stupid! No illegal should get scholarship! No illegal should be able to go to college on the American’s dime! Period! What is it about illegal, don’t people understand? I guess we need to start sending out pop up books, so that people will understand this!

    • Chesapeake

      The brain power of a fruit fly. I’m surprised the can tie their shoes. A lady told me her college student niece admits she can’t tell time unless she has a digital watch.

  • UStodd

    Hey go with them. Problem solved, no separation.

  • Steve O

    They were allowed into the country based on the representation that they were here for a visit. Enrolling in a college is a pretty good indication that you’re not telling the truth.

    If I went to Luxembourg on “vacation” and I brought my passport, birth certificate, marriage license, school transcripts, banking records, historical tax returns, and 12 suitcases, there’s a good chance I would be turned around and sent back to the airline check-in counter.

  • CJ B

    2012-2017, 5 years, not so fast…. Must have only had one set of jumper cables..

  • Suzana

    They boys are illegal and the mother no?
    She has the nerve to grieve t hey will be split. She should have gone with them.

  • Suzana

    America for Americans!
    Criminals deserve no benefits, they are successful in their deed only because everybody else follow the rules.
    Charity is for natives or foreigners. In their countries.

  • Elisa Lenz

    The illegals, all the libtards, the snow flakes and SJWs are dumbfounded. They can’t believe that a candidate said what he was going to do, got elected, and as president phucking DID what he said he was going to do. I’m almost sixty years old and it’s the first time in my lifetime that this has happened.

  • Nobody wants to separate any families. The rest of them are more than welcome to leave.

  • Charles Kafka

    LoL, for a second i thought that button said teleport..
    so how is a wall going to keep out the martian labor again?
    well back to my reading about barron trump, and the “last president” written in 1894.

  • Jesus Christ

    Shipped out so fast! I love it.

    I don’t know how these people can celebrate a foreigner taking a spot for an American.

  • drunkentrooper

    They were deported soon thereafter, and the family’s attorney claims it’s the “fastest deportation process he has ever seen.”

    Does ICE have Prime?

  • Typical

    Send them all, seems like a good way to round up a bunch, just go to whatever court they are fighting the deportations at and ask fro visas and green cards.

  • GFYSEAD

    Deport their mom next

  • BorderGuard

    I can’t imagine how many RAPES and MURDERS these two would commit at college…
