Why are Iraqi Christians facing deportation from US?

Link to video

More than 100 Iraqi Christians in Michigan are fighting deportation after being arrested in an immigration crackdown ordered by the Trump administration.

Most were detained for visa violations, including past criminal convictions, that had been ignored by US officials for years, even decades.

Many in the community supported Donald Trump's presidential campaign and say they never thought they would be targeted by raids.

Even if they are Christians, if they've overstayed their visas and some have criminal convictions, under Trump's order, they have to go.  Even law-abiding people are being deported.

Um, then one might be more carful and not commit criminal acts.

Yes. Just another example of folks voting against their own interests because they were promised kittens and puppies.

Its the 2nd line in your post. Did you not read it?

This just proves Trump's Travel Ban and Illegal immigration has nothing to do with "Muslims and Mexicans". It's anyone here illegally and/or unvetted, regardless of religious affiliation.

Thanks OP.

Yep -

I keep reading how Trump supporters were conned and didn't vote in their best interest.

We voted for the rule of law.

This is an example of following the law.

It is not an example of being conned, or for voting against our interests

They are so crazed right now - 

Instead of posting, so much, I can just sit back and enjoy.
