Former Marine's wife being deported to Mexico

  • Alejandra Juarez, 39 says goodbye to her children Pamela and Estela at the Orlando International Airport

After multiple rejections in her bid to stay in the USA, a mother of two married to a Polk County Marine veteran boarded a plane Friday morning at Orlando International Airport bound for her native Mexico - forced to leave her American family behind. "She's not a criminal", Pamela said, cursing at the immigration agency before her mother checked in for her flight from Orlando International Airport.

Maney said Juarez has tried to get legal status for years, but when she first tried to enter the country at 19 years old, she got in trouble for making a false claim to a border patrol agent and signed papers that banned her future rights to citizenship.

Alejandra said she'd ask how Trump could let this happen, since he "always says he loves the military and he's doing everything for the military".

Under Trump's zero-tolerance policy this year, though, she was notified that she would be deported, and began the process of begging for her citizenship.

Juarez had lived in Davenport, Florida without any problems until 2013 when a traffic stop exposed her as an undocumented immigrant. Rather than be deported, Juarez - a US military wife who illegally entered the country 20 years ago - headed back to Mexico. Their daughters were born in the U.S.

Soto, whose district includes the Juarez residence, said his office has also written letters to ICE officials championing Juarez's case but has not heard back.

Emotions were high as Alejandra Juarez hugged her two children and husband goodbye.

Venezuelan government: Explosions were attempted attack on President Nicolas Maduro
He said Maduro was safe and in a meeting with his cabinet and top military officials, and that the wounded men were being treated. He added that "several" drones loaded with explosive charges "detonated near the presidential platform".

Without knowing what she was doing, Juarez signed paperwork in 1998 during an unsuccessful attempt to enter the US that gave away her future rights to come to the country legally, the Sentinel reported.

"They're punishing him for something that I did a long time ago".

Juarez left Florida voluntarily to avoid being detained and plans to reside in Merida, a town that has a small community of deported military spouses that may be able to support her as she gets settled, Fox News reported.

Prior to going through the security checkpoint at the airport on Friday, she offered a short message to Trump: "I hope this makes you happy", she said. She no longer has any family or friends in Mexico.

"What justice does this serve", he said.

U.S. Rep. Darren Soto (D-Fla.) has been pushing for the "Patriot Spouses Act" legislation to allow Alejandra Juarez to remain in the country but the bill was not taken up by a House committee.

The family's attorney, Chelsea Nowel, said Alejandra Juarez has no criminal record besides her illegal entry.
