It has been an emotional start to the new year for Rocio Rebollar Gomez and her family.
On Thursday, after 31 years in the United States, a country where she had built a life and raised three children, including a son now in the United States Army, Ms. Gomez was deported to Tijuana, Mexico, where she had little family left.
That son, Second Lt. Gibram Cruz, 30, who has been in the Army for five years and rushed to be with her the day after Christmas, said he was shocked at the way his mother was treated and called the actions by Immigration and Customs Enforcement completely inhumane.

But I can understand it, as a retired Army Officer I have been trying to get my wife an green card since 2011 and still no joy.
There needs to be a trusted sponsor option.
I thought you could sponsor a spouse. No?
I have a friend from Ecuador whose name is Rocio. It means “Misty.”
Criminal activity has consequences. If her son doesn't understand that, he should not be serving the the US armed forces.
This woman illegally took resources and opportunities away from Americans.
Whats the point of this article? As if I didnt know. Just another hit piece on how cruel President Trump is and his inhumane deportation policies.
Oh Boo freaking Hoo.
What has she been doing, for the past 31 years to become a citizen?
She was deported because it’s the right thing to do in a country of laws.
We are 13 months into this sponsor effort, and it’s still not settled. No only is my wife the spouse of an US Citizen, she is the biological mother of an US Citizen.
She gave the US an Army officer. I should think that would be more than enough to mitigate the circumstances.
Rocio needs to review the pledges he swore to uphold.
Stop breaking our laws.
How difficult is that to understand. And thank you for your service.
Considering the source, I have to believe this story is being exploited for the sole benefit and profit of the source and its sponsors.
I am less sorry for her than I am for all those waiting to come to the U.S. legally and are betrayed by the illegals that illegally jump to the head of the line. Accepting all the illegals as O.K. is like flipping the bird at those waiting for their opportunity legally.
I don’t weep for those who break laws.
She knew exactly what she was doing. Since I’m Hispanic also, I would like to know what planet this officer thinks he lives on, where folks can just come and go as they please breaking laws & so forth - stealing from others?
Guatemala, Mexico and Nicaragua have fierce immigration laws.
Too busy watching Spanish language TV?
Umm. No, that’s not how the law works.
Why couldn’t she apply for citizenship like legal immigrants do? After 31 years?
TJ aint too bad. Life is not over.
