Deadly Deportation

Against the backdrop of immigration raids that saw nearly 700 arrests in Mississippi on Thursday, Jimmy Aldaoud’s death offers a grim reminder of the danger of the Trump administration’s deportation policies.
Born in Greece to Iraqi parents, Aldaoud had lived in Detroit since infancy among a community of Chaldean Catholics, a religious minority persecuted by the Islamic State. After being deported to Iraq—a country he’d never seen—he died from lack of insulin to treat his diabetes, his family says.
His death has rattled the US Chaldean community, many of whom have been targeted for deportation despite living for decades in America, Politico reports.

The Washington Post shared a heartbreaking Facebook video of Jimmy.
