Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos appears to be one of first undocumented immigrants deported under the Trump administration. Ben Mankiewicz, Hannah Cranston, Brett Erlich, and Aida Rodriguez, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos had been in the United States for nearly two decades before she was deported Wednesday to her native country of Mexico.

The married mother of two is thought to be one of the first undocumented immigrants to be deported since US President Donald Trump signed an executive order in January cracking down on illegal immigration.

Her supporters say the deportation shows that Trump's policy needlessly tears families apart and fails to prioritize dangerous offenders. Here's what we know about the case so far…

The role of President Trump's executive order tightening enforcement of illegal immigration laws is another point of contention.
Under the new administration's policy announced last month, any undocumented immigrant convicted or charged with a crime that hasn't been adjudicated could be deported. Under the Obama administration, only undocumented immigrants convicted of a felony, serious misdemeanor or multiple misdemeanors were prioritized for deportation.

ICE said the executive order had nothing to do with it. In multiple statements on the matter, the agency has cited her felony conviction, her 2013 removal order and a focus on removing people with felony convictions and final orders of removal.
Maldonado and other supporters, including Phoenix's mayor, believe Trump's executive order had everything to do with it.”*
