Garcia was brought to the country with an undocumented relative when he was 10 years old, according to the Detroit Free Press.

But Garcia's fate changed after the Trump administration accelerated immigration enforcement. But, Cuomo was quick to pin Garcia's heart wrenching situation on President Trump's "crackdown" on illegal immigration. "It's another example of the tone-deafness of this administration". ICE agents escorted him onto a plane bound for Mexico.

On Monday morning, the Garcia family had a family friend drive them to the airport, where they had been told Garcia would be deported. Jorge Garcia was only 10 when he came to the USA with his family. But the fact remains, his family committed a crime by coming here illegally, and bringing him with them, and continued to commit the crime by living here undocumented. "We've never done anything without permission from immigration".

He came to the US illegally with his parents when he was 10-years-old.

An ICE spokesman told the Free Press on Monday that he could not immediately comment because it was a federal holiday and ICE offices were closed.

"I feel kind of sad", said Garcia.

Cindy is working to get him back to the United States, but she said it could be 18 months before he even gets a hearing. Diego Bonesatti, legal services director for Michigan United, and others have been fighting for Jorge Garcia for years and now will try to get him back. Cindy Garcia told ABC News she is "very sad, very depressed, emotional".

Ms. Garcia said her husband had asked the immigration officials to wait until new DACA legislation passed, with the hope that the age limit might be modified, but their request was denied.

"That's when the tears just started flowing, because we knew that was going to be it".

"It's heartbreaking", Bonesatti said. Since then, they have met with immigration officials annually, and each time his deportation was delayed. Under the Obama administration, people in Garcia's position were rarely targeted for deportation.
