This 60 Minutes Segment on a Deported Restaurateur Is Distressing.

Back in February, the Trump administration deported Roberto Beristain, an Indiana restaurateur who owns a popular steakhouse called Eddie’s Steak Shed and is married with three kids. He entered the U.S. illegally in 1997, but beyond that didn’t have “so much as a parking ticket on his record.” And in 2012, the Department of Homeland Security gave him all the documents he needed to stay, as long as he kept out of trouble. On February 6 — three weeks into Trump’s term, a month after officially acquiring Eddie’s, but most importantly, three months after Roberto’s wife, Helen, voted for Donald Trump — the Beristains drove to Indianapolis for his annual check-in with ICE. “I waited in the car, and Roberto just never came back out,” Helen recalls.

As Anderson Cooper observed last night on a new 60 Minutes about their predicament, “The irony of what’s happened is not lost on Roberto’s wife.” He sat down for Helen’s first big interview since immigration agents sent Roberto back to Mexico — where, for now, it sounds like he’s moved back in with his parents.

As expected, pretty much the first question out of Cooper’s mouth was about her Trump vote:

COOPER: You voted for him.

HELEN: I voted for him. Because he said, “We’re going to make our economy better.” I did like that idea. And I said to Roberto, “You know what, you’re getting a small business, and that’s going to help you with your taxes.” But he said, “Okay, well, but you don’t think he’s going to deport all of us people?”

COOPER: Roberto actually raised that idea?

HELEN: Yeah, he did. And I said, “Roberto, c’mon now. You’ve got your documents, you obey the law, you haven’t done anything bad — you’re not a criminal.”

Cooper asked Helen, who is herself a naturalized citizen from Greece, if she regrets her vote, and she told him she’d definitely take a mulligan if she could. “Like they say, you should read the fine print first before you make a selection, I should have listened closely to those debates,” she said. “That was the mistake I made. I didn’t listen.” She recently told The Wall Street Journal that their kids are now being taunted by classmates at school, and the restaurant’s business is struggling without Roberto running the kitchen.

Thank you to the Judge who overruled Trump.

When power increases so does stupidity. I do not know if Trump will send soldiers to Mexico to get rid of bad hombres but who knows. This only shows me that he has completely forgotten all the crooked people in the USA. I have an idea—round up all the gangs throw them in boot camp for a year and teach them life skills.

Who benefits from poor people?

  1. California is bone dry no crops grow so the produce bought now comes from Mexico. Now Donny Do Right wants to build a wall and the Mexicans will not pay so that tariff of 30% on all produce will increase the price of the food that YOU will have to pay for.
  2. Simplistic answers for complex questions which Donny Do Right decided to do on a Friday. Citizens who have lived in the USA for over ten years take a vacation to visit the old country return home and cannot enter their homeland for another four months because they are Muslims. Please help us God from this mad man. He did not go to any advisers first he decided on his own dictating just like Mussolini whose so called friend was Hitler. We now have Donny and Vlad.
  3. That wall is a white elephant USA will pay for it, Guzman the drug dealer dug under the wall, there is the sea of either side, planes fly over the wall, and now we have drones. We never thought about the wall until Donny spoke.

You may think the people chosen by Trump to help him run the country will have a say WRONG they are his accessories his yes men anyone who stands up against him WILL BE FIRED. He is a ‘psychopath in a suit’, you should read that book.

I am waiting for the war he will start so factories are built, jobs made and war fodder of young men and women come from a poor background.
