Deported father in touch with his family Gaston Cazares, the father of two Scripps Ranch High School students, was deported by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency last week. He reportedly wound up in Tijuana, and has been in touch with his family. While Cazares is a Mexican citizen, he has lived in the United Sates since age 16, and has few connections in Mexico.
ICE, part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, ruled Sept. 28 that Gaston Cazares would be deported to Mexico because he was in this country illegally
Cazares and has been married to a U.S. citizen for 23 years. His wife and children are American citizens, but Cazares reportedly moved to the U.S. illegally at age 16 and did not gain U.S. citizenship.
Cazares was reported to be his family’s sole source of income, paid taxes in this country and has no criminal record besides his immigration status. The literal enforcement of immigration laws underway, as ordered by President Donald Trump, is the reason for the ruling.
