Soccer Star Deported After Reporting Scholarship To ICE: How He’s Starting Over | Sports Illustrated


And new at. 10 tonight there were new, developments wednesday in the story of diego and lizandro And i mean it all began last week, when ice agents detained the brothers following a regular checkup That they had set up with immigration officials in baltimore the undocumented teen informed immigration of his plans to head to north carolina for college 19 Year old Lizandro Claro Sarabia was heading to college on a soccer scholarship he and his 22 year old brother diego were detained when they checked in at the ice Baltimore office last friday i mean nothing had happened or anything like, that so we just thought it was gonna be normal a normal day i Sent a letter it had the scholarship i got and that i was accepted to the school, and that i Was getting enrolled that i had gotten enroll already and and so They, asked if we could come because, we had to check in and so they Asked if we could come earlier they took us to a back room and then, we waited for like two hours and they came out and They just said that they couldn’t let us go because they couldn’t let, me go to another state and living in another state Because in some if they needed to get catch us One day it was going to be harder on them which is way different like i Used to have my car i just grabbed, my keys and go out. You know over here Iike I can’t, cause I don’t have my car. I don’t even know the place I Can’t put the gps And go out cause there’s no gps you know there’s no name on the street i feel, like this is my university but at the same time like around here i i’m not adapted to it yet i Don’t really have pictures that i put around here and all that I don’t know I feel like i’ll never be able to adapt normally if i keep bringing this out, from there at First I I i used to blame it on myself because i was the one who sent that letter i was the one, who was going to college and i mean, my, brother had nothing to do with it and Just because he, was there in the process with me he also was a victim of it so if you could go, back and do it all over, again, would you send that letter no i Wouldn’t i wouldn’t show up to the immigration offices i didn’t know, my dad until i i i Moved to the US so i when when he left i was about one year old And so then, my mom went went next and then, my, my older brother and my sister and It was just me and diego back in El Salvador so We’ve been together for a long time My, whole family’s in the US. And that’s where, my home, is that’s that’s, where all my family is so you, don’t feel at home if Your people was not at home This is Lizandro and Diego Have you seen pictures of Lizandro looked really, not really but fat they were They, were living here together before and Then when Lizandro had a girlfriend so, Diego decides to move to this room No me atrebo aveces a entrar al cuarto porque, al cuarto de ellos me da mucha tristeza Muy, dificil muy triste La casa es muy vacia, muy sola Muy difícil para mi porque ya no, no los tenemos ya This is Diego and Lizandro in a fair in El Salvador, they were always together always And this is was last year for christmas It’s really hard not to be together and especially these holidays Um last year we were so happy for christmas And this year is hard for us Cuando ellos vinieron aqui, yo platique con ella para meternos en una academia para que después de escuela se mantenieran ocupados Para que no tuvieran problemas aquí He was very aggressive player and that’s that’s Why, we loved him For like his soccer, soccer world because he brought something to the field that a lot of us probably Wouldn’t have but it was the times like, before practicing, after practice, on the bus rides to games, when we’re traveling That’s when you really get to know people and that’s when he made the biggest impact on all of us Just to see his progression not only soccer wise but in this country, and what he’s doing down in front of homeland security Which is just up off nebraska avenue, we didn’t, assume the worst but like We knew it was a possibility that it wasn’t gonna do anything But i think it made enough noise that People still are still talking, about it Which in our mind is like, what’s the most important part because it can, help other people in the future And they’re an example of great people that Were doing great things in this country that benefited a ton of people and impacted a ton of people That were wrongfully taken away from it You look at a kid like Lizandro and diego, and They were, despite the fact that they came here at 10 and 14 Despite the fact that they have, no criminal record despite the fact that they have been valuable contributors to our community they were deported and How, is that just i don’t know? Add to the fact that This administration is hell-bent on criminalizing immigrants and Add to the fact that they’re targeting youth that are going to college I’d say it’s not just Disheartening but inhumane and and i would say any rational person In America would say, that’s just terrible policy we’re trying to um To, see if we can, play first division here so If we can make it there is gonna be you know Good future for us is the thing that we’d like to do not be in school and then go play When i’m in the field, when i’m with the ball ah There’s nothing, no problems i’m back home Where i’m supposed to be like nothing and it’s all about the game at that moment At this moment i’m just it’s it’s whatever it’s i gotta, do what i gotta do here and if they gave me the opportunity here, why not Take advantage of it and then we see What life has on for us after that

  1. stolen American children identity – it is bad enough for an American adult to find out that His identity was stolen but children are low down dirty – when the unlawful people used your identity they have children under the American victim identity too. the scholarship supposes to be for American kids but they cheat our kids in their own country. His government is responsible for Lisandro, not our country. Our Kids are the only ones this country depend on when and if a draft is call to protect America -therefore we must protect our kids lives first

  2. the entire family is in America unlawfully — skipping the Naturalization line is dead wrong and lying doesn't help. the laws are clear – you can't hijack a country just because you don't like the rules or too lazy to apply. it is bad enough that the American people are forced — forced to take care of foreigners – free education – free housing – all this and none of them could be draft into any America wars to defend the nation while all the real American boys could. we Owe it to all Our military people to know that if they died defending us we don't allow other able bodies unlawful men hang out in the country unlawfully

  3. Sorry regardless even if he's getting the noble peace prize for curing cancer I'd send him back, we cannot make exceptions because if we do we send the message of making excuses for anybody to come. I'll wish him luck in El Salvador maybe he'll be picked up for the Olympics and someone can sponsor him for citizenship

  4. Illegals shouldn’t get any free education or free help for anything, that’s for Americans only. Deport his ass , tattoo loser illegal on his for head

  5. Another scam disclosed against USA laws. They received free education, free food, medical care, and any other welfare request. They and their family knew they are illegal aliens. Many of them are trying to excel in sports & get scholarships for college that the devilrats haven't already given them. USA college scholarships meant for USA CITIZENS are given to illegal aliens, refugees, TPR, expired visa ppl, etc… THEY ARE CRIMINALS/THEY BROKE USA LAW WITH INTENT TO CONTINUE IT DO IT !!!!! THEY HAVE NO SHAME IN THEIR SCAM. Trying to downplay their actions because they are not MS
    13 gang members is like excusing clergy ppl for abusing children because they are priests, nuns, rabbis, priests, etc… not members of crimminal
    gangs. Thanks to ICE for following USA law despite interference from those who are not independently
    paying for all expenses of illegal aliens but forcing USA CITIZENS to pay them !!! USA AND USA CITIZENS 1st WHO WANT BETTER LIVES FOR THEIR FAMILIES BUT THEIR $$ IS
    USED TO PAY ILLEGAL ALIENS BETTER SCAM LIVES !!!

  6. The scholarship will go to a deserving legal immigrant or us citizen. Liberal media loves anarchy

  7. So why didnt he file for citizenship? Those that have not filed but lived here long time will and should be deported! Being illegal is a crime. Must uphold the law. No exceptions! Seriously!

  8. Scholarship should go to a citzen imagine how a young person feels to be passed over while you get the benift

  9. Don't worry boys Trump is doing his best to send the rest of your illegal family then you can have a wonderful family reunion with out fear of ever being deported.you should have never received a scollership being an illegal but like every other illegal I'm Shure you used fake or stolen identidy. Stealing a scollership that should have gone to a real American kid . But it worked out you didn't get it..No FREE TUITION FOR ILLEGALS. NO SCHOOL FOR ILLEGAL CHILDREN,NO HEALTH CARE, NOW THANKS TO MR.CARSEN ILLEGALS are being evicted out of section 8 housing as of TODAY may 22nd 2019. 👏👍

  10. I feel bad for this kid, but the school can still give him the scholarship, and the kid can now come into the country legallyOR the this school can give the scholarship to an American kid who needs it just as much, and deserves it just as much, but that doesn't make for good story telling. I'm sure an American kid would be just as grateful. Did the scholarship pay for everything, or did the kid need to get a job or loan for some of the year? If it didn't pay for everything, where was he getting the rest of the money? All questions that should be answered.

  11. Are these illegals so stupid that they think they are illegible for scholarships? They are not victims, they are people who do not respect laws.

  12. It’s obvious he’s been in the U.S. for a while…he has no accent when speaking

    Ik some ppl that have accents that where actually born in the United States but bc their first language wasn’t English

  13. All the AMERICAN CITIZENS should unite and show our Government we will just stand by while this illegals walk into the U.S.A! We have WEAPONS and doesn't take much to know how to use them! The is the reason the CORRUPT DEMOCRATS wanted our guns and weapons! We must unite and fight for our country and our CHILDREN COUNTRY! ******UNITED WE STAND! DIVIDED WE FALL!

  14. I feel for you but plenty of people get the proper things needed to stay ……so why couldn't you

  15. What happens when you come illegal and think you can just stroll around and nothing will happen to you. Give me a break. Go to college and what get free tuition? Go home and play soccer there. You weren't in US long enough to claim you can't go back to living in your own country. Sports hero so this is why they bothered. How about the idea that you apply legally for a change?

  16. 9:10. Targeting youth going to college?? What about the American taxpayers that are paying for this guy's education? And then he gets to go to college (probably again pd for by taxpayers), taking a spot on the soccer team that an American student won't be able to have? Since when are you more caring about illegals than our own citizens??

  17. Sad but gotta face reality the sooner the better. Suena triste Pero encarar La realidad es mejor. Y nadie es culpable de Nada, si no lees LA constitution y las reglas de cada estado de USA no sirves para vivir alla.uno mismo puede arreglar su estatus y ser libre del ICE.

  18. Lmao that’s what’s happens when you here illegal lmao great job Border Patrol another lying illegal!!!!I bet your missing Starbucks lmao and our American women lmao.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  19. Get them all of 🇺🇸 deport them all back to their own Country These people breed and have Lots of little pups Ride System for free !!!!!!

  20. Adios cockroach. Next time do it LEGALLY.
    Illegal aliens SHOULD NOT be allowed into American colleges in the first place, especially on a scholarship paid for by American citizens.

  21. Pure insanity, crying about what you did to yourself and then trying to get everyone and they mama to rally behind your stupidity. You knew the rules tried to bend them. You got yourself in trouble. Its called consequences of your own actions.

  22. Wonder how many US SOCIAL SERVICE DOLLARS WERE SPENT ON THIS FAMILY? Why is the rest of the illegal family still in this country? Deport them ALL BACK to El salvador where they can be together!

  23. WE MUST TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN FIRST! When EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN HAS HOUSING, FOOD, MEDICAL CARE, ACCESS TO EDUCATION – THEN AND ONLY THEN CONSIDER THE IMMIGRANTS – and NEVER AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT! We are a country of laws..we don’t want the cheaters!

  24. So sad , you cant be here Illegal , just dont come here illegal and expect normalcy , America isnt like those small south american countries , we have real immigration laws here , sad story though

  25. Im sorry to see people who are living law abiding lives be deported Our congress needs to step up and do whats right for these people Congress makes me sick they are despicable And my other thing I believe and it should be part of the law that these peoples that come to the United States must speak English No excuses ENGLISH You should want to be a citizen and respect this country enough to speak ENGLISH.period

  26. I want these people to be proud of their heritage but this is America and you should show your love of being here by speaking the language respecting the laws and not breaking them Im only a second generation American but Im grateful for the privledge

  27. ILLEGAL means ILLEGAL why should illegals cut in line of people who follow the law and respect our border? You are NOT a victim blame your parents.

  28. I dont care kick them all out soccer play no soccer play kick them out alone with the ms-13 gang members and all the rest of the legal and illegals

  29. Hey Parkers. You guys gonna leave the US one day. If not through deportation, it will be through natural causes. Fifty years from now, youll both be dead. America is not your home, neither it's mine or anybody else's. Think on that

  30. TRUMPS ADMINISTRATION IS DETERMINED TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT FOR THOSE WHO ENTER THE COUNTRY LEGALLY. REMEMBER, THE DEPORTATIONS BEGAN WITH OBAMA. DONT CALL IT RACISM CALL IT JUSTICE!!!

  31. Tough shit. You shouldn’t have come illegally. I’m sick of these fucking illegals and their sob stories.

  32. America! This is disgusting…. who…..in their right God-given mind…..thinks DEFRAUDING OUR COUNTRY is not criminal. These people are liars and thieves….AND…. involve children in their felony behavior. SMH. Illegal immigration does not entitle them to benefits…. only DEPORTATION.

  33. My heart goes out to all the families whom have been taken away and deported. They just want a better life in this country.

  34. I WISH TRUMP WOULD GIVE BLACKS A CHANCE TO GO BACK TO AFRICA? AS REPATRIATIONS OFFER EVERY BLACK PERSON ONE MILLION DOLLAR FOR MY CITIZENSHIP AND CAN NEVER RETURN TO THE U.S. ILL BE OUT OF THIS M.F THE SAME DAY? M.A.G.A IT WANT EVEN BE A TRILLION DOLLARS. AMERICA WILL TRULY BE WHITE ONLY? NOW THAT'S ONE WAY TO GET RID OF BLACK PEOPLE. HELL ILL EVEN TAKE A DAMM BOAT BACK. LET ME OUT OF THIS BITCH? DAMM IT IM GONE. SURE HOPE TRUMP GET THIS MESSAGE.

  35. When you enter the U.S. illegally what do you want? All these illegals entering the U.S. today
    are going to vote in U.S. elections—I can just see them being deported and blaming others for their departure. Go ahead vote in a U.S. election illegally! You will be caught and deported!

  36. This Administration is trying to abide by our laws. They are not criminalizing illegal aliens because illegal aliens have already criminalized themselves by sneaking into a nation that exists for it's citizens.
    We are not a nation of immigrants, we are a nation of CITIZENS!

  37. Bottom line is that the scholarship belongs to a U S citizen or legal immigrant…… These are the consequences when you don’t do things the correct way…Their parents are at fault…..

  38. I'm against illegal immigration however, wisdom has to be used and deporting this young man is senseless.. We don't have wise, moral leaders.. From the police to the judges, to the politicians and president.. Everything is wrong..

  39. It is young people like this that need to be protected by California.
    They could raise up a whole new generation of talented illegals that are superior in many ways. They can protect them within their states borders. Instead of protecting the other ones that have squat to offer.

  40. But then I forgot California prefers to protect people that take dumps on their Street and throw their filth all around. Boy they're stupid.

  41. The US must come up with a solution to the problem of deportation. Deport criminals. Those who have been in this country through no fault of their own and have lead a meaningful life must be given consideration. DACA could have been solved. POTUS tried. Dems would not cooperate. Of course we should put s stop
    The mass migration. It should be done now. To interfere with lives who have been loyal to the US have made a good positive life crime free is in humane.

  42. Omar who serves in Congress from Somalia clearly a traitor who supports terrorists, enemies of the US and have killed our men, allowed to stay. It makes no sense. She clearly is a threat to our country.
    The soccer players headed to college pose no threat to the US would have been productive citizens if given a chance.
    Come up with a solution for others like the Soccer players. Thus us Congress’ responsibility. Instead the do nothing but obstruct and impede progress.

  43. Disgusting that they see themselves as "victims." Being undocumented means you are NOT here legally and you will always face possible deportation. You are NOT a VICTIM. You victimized the country by entering illegally. It would be great if all these "victims" could be located and sent back.

  44. So ….. why did they not pick up the rest of the family and deport them too? Maybe ICE will watch this video and go get them. Then they can all be together again.

  45. I feel sorry for the young people who where brought here by their parents. This is their parents fault. Why can't the mother speek english if she is citizen.

  46. Hopefully they will get to return promptly with the coming change of Administration from GOP to Democrat. How the USA can feel good about separating families … I just don't know.

  47. From the bottom of my heart I wish you guys the best. God bless . Remember God can hear your prayer / do that ask God to help you guys.

  48. What's the harm in letting him play soccer and earn a college degree? The brothers speak English. They have a skillset.

  49. Ahhh Coach, your forgetting coming into country legally? There are many people waiting on a list to come in legally. Make the best of it, it’s your home ? Why are the parents separated?

  50. Parents are at fault you put your boys in this situation….don't be the system for doing there job ..you pretty much broke the law and consequences they pay because of your fault so don't be crying and blaming the system…

  51. Why didn't he become a US citizen ? Although, We feel for these people non of their pain would be there if he took the time to become a citizen.

  52. There are levels of documentation: tourist visa, worker temp visa, special project visa, and all of which require going to court every,3 , 4, 6 months to reapply.
    It costs a price of an attorney and time.
    The other issue is their country of origin have,none of the required paperwork.

  53. Parents fault for knowingly breaking immigration laws of USA. Deport the family together is better than separation of families. Trump deports families together. Obama deported and separated families.
