Trump regime deports two community soccer player here since 2009

WAMU - The future for people living in the United States illegally has become much more uncertain this year, as last week’s deportation of two Salvadoran brothers who played for the Bethesda Soccer Club shows. The boys had lived in Maryland since 2009, had no criminal records, and were detained when they showed up for a scheduled check-in with immigration officials. Despite protests from their Maryland teammates and neighbors, they were deported five days later to a country that’s on the State Department’s travel warning list.

The story has raised a lot of questions about changes in U.S. policy and what it means for people who, until recently, thought they were at no risk of deportations as long as they had no run-ins with the law.
