The missing – consequences of Trump’s immigration crackdown – BBC News

In a rural county that voted for Trump, people are shocked to see friends deported and schoolmates disappear. Now a community is coming to terms with the economic and emotional consequences.

The Trump team insists the actions of the deportation force, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), is simply a matter of applying the law and delivering a key election pledge.

This story is part of the BBC’s coverage of President Trump’s first year, with reporting from across the US and perspectives from all sides.

    BBC is bias to the alt-left. Trump supports legal immigration. Illegal Immigration is against the law and if you break the law there are consequences. These laws are already law, its time to enforce them and secure our borders.

    they chose to live illegally in another country. there was always the possibility that they would be caught. you can't just go live in whatever country you want in the world. every country has immigration laws. follow them. if you don't agree, then work to change the laws. but you can't ignore the laws without consequences.

    I’m no fan of trump but he does get a lot of bad press and never seems to get any praise. Didn’t he achieve the lowest levels of unemployment for women? Haven’t seen any media corporations covering this.

    If you are here illegally you have just committed your first crime. If you are driving, you have committed your second crime. If you are working here illegally you have committed a third crime. Where does it end. These people are stealing our money and potential jobs our kids use to do.

    No sympathy whatsoever. You either have immigration policy, borders and a country or you do not. This open-border propaganda is a disgrace and a slap in the face to national sovereignty, a slap in the face to people like Kate Steinle and a slap in the face to LEGAL workers and LEGAL citizens.
    "Some of these people have been here 10, 15 or 20 years" And still no citizenship application? What's the holdup? It's not rocket science!! Make an application and if you qualify, you'll become a citizen! You hear that? It's the world's smallest violin.
    "The fear of ICE raids has driven workers out of the area and made it harder for companies to recruit legal migrants." What does a legal migrant have to fear from ICE raids? Oh that's right nothing, making this whole statement and video meaningless… unless of course the BBC is equivocating the two.. which they are of course because to peddle open-border propaganda you have to be dishonest and use deception.
    "aww they picked up Mario!!" pfft gtfo.

    Usual totally one sided biased reporting from the Fake News BBC.
    Every country in the EU are quietly deporting illegals !
    Every former President is on record supporting the removal of illegals !

    If some one is in the USA illegally ,they should have done the paper work Or should do the paper work to be in the USA legally.
    If they have not done it , They are illegally and are committing a crime, It just keeps going . So Do the paper work 1st .

    This is a sad indeed. I wish it doesn’t have to happen but these are the consequences of breaking immigration law and this wouldn’t be so hard if congress acted many many many years ago and worked on our border security and visa system.
