American, 33, who was deported to El Salvador two years ago returns home; ‘We’re whole again, we’re a family’, says his wife

A 33-year-old father of two American-born children was allowed to return to the US on Monday, two years after being deported to El Salvador. Jose Escobar was welcomed at Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport by a group of supporters. In February 2017, shortly after Trump took office and widened the priorities for detaining and deporting immigrants without authorization, Escobar was arrested during what was supposed to be a routine ICE check-in.
