    Immigration officials deported the spouse of a U.S. soldier killed in Afghanistan last week, leaving the couple's 12-year-daughter in Phoenix, then abruptly reversed its decision on Monday when the deported man was allowed to return to the U.S.

    Jose Gonzalez Carranza, 30, was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers last Monday on his way to his welding job and then deported to Nogales, Sonora, early Thursday morning, according to Gonzalez Carranza and his attorney, Ezequiel Hernandez.

    Gonzalez Carranza was married to Army Pfc. Barbara Vieyra, who was killed on Sept. 18, 2010, while serving in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. She was 22.

    During an interview, Gonzalez Carranza told The Arizona Republic he was allowed to re-enter the U.S. through the DeConcini port of entry in Nogales, Arizona Monday afternoon.

    He said he was then driven back to Phoenix where ICE officials dropped him off at the agency's headquarters near downtown.

    ICE officials offered no explanation for the decision to allow Gonzalez Carranza to return to the U.S. But Hernandez believes the reversal was triggered by media attention the deportation received.

    Cecillia Wang, deputy legal director at the ACLU, said she could not recall a similar deportation. She said the deportation was unnecessary.

    “It’s the height of cruelty for ICE to deport the father of a child whose mother died while serving in the U.S. army in Afghanistan," Wang said. "The government can exercise its discretion not to pursue deportation against the sole remaining parent of a U.S. citizen child under these circumstances."
    U.S. deports spouse of fallen soldier, quickly reverses decision

    Meantime, Trump has abandoned President Obama's policy of focusing immigration enforcement on dangerous criminals instead of otherwise law-abiding illegals.

    I hope they will go through with allowing them into sanctuary cities then the states might create new cities for them. it would cause a need for lots of jobs.

    Several mayors of those cities have enthusiastically welcomed the idea. Trump seems to have started believing his own tweets.
