Deported

She admits he was in the country without documentation. N's husband had been deported on Friday as she told her story in a church basement on Sunday.

"We pay our taxes. He's been working for the same company for 12 years and is a foreman now. He supports me and our four children and we aren't in debt. Why did they have to take him?"

The knock on the door had come early in the morning. When N answered the uniformed men asked her if she knew either of the men in the mug shots. She didn't recognize the photos. Then the men asked if there was anyone else in the house and she answered yes. They came in and told her husband to come with them. Once in the yard they handcuffed him without explanation and put him in the police car. The uniformed men told N she would hear from her husband in a couple of hours and asked if she wanted to give her husband any money. That was at about 7 a.m.
