ICE deports US Army Officer’s mom

51-year-old Rocio Rebollar Gomez was desperate to make a better life for her kids. Since 1988, she has entered the United States three times illegally, once while pregnant to be reunited with her other children in America. 

"I couldn't leave them," she tearfully recounted in an interview with Telemundo 20 this past Thursday as she road to court to to be deported. 

Gomez awoke that Thursday morning to racist and hateful graffiti sprayed on the fence of her home. 

“Last night, they vandalized our home. They put a message of racism, of hate,” Rebollar Gomez said, fighting back tears. “And, well, I don’t understand what is the – it’s incredible to me that in this century there are those feelings out there.”


The mother – whose son serves in the U.S. Army – still had a glimmer of hope as she hopped in the car and headed to court.

“We’re praying to God to work a miracle – that there’s a change – and that they don’t separate me from my family,” she cried. “Because, right now, that’s where this is headed.”
By 11 a.m., she was back in Tijuana, Mexico.
