A lengthy piece published in The Daily Beast with the ominous subhead, “Feeding the Monsters,” goes into great detail about the ordeal of “one Ohio resident with head injuries after being rear-ended” who “was deported anyway—and kidnapped the same day.”
The article goes into harrowing detail about Mexican cartels and violent crime, but before getting to any of that, readers need to get past the headline: “Mom Deported Because She Didn’t Change Lanes.” We’re guessing there was room to squeeze a couple more words in the tweet, but this is what readers were given:

That’s a harsh punishment for not changing lanes, to be certain.
Terrible click bait headline

Really? That's crazy! I've never heard of an American citizen being deported before. Is that even Constitutional?
— Scott Carroll (@YouDaManTiger) August 9, 2017
Was she deported for changing lanes or because she was an illegal immigrant?🤔

No. The deportation was for coming here illegally. But you knew that.

No, she was deported because she's an illegal.

ACTUALLY, she was deported because
a. She was an illegal alien
b. she got caught. https://t.co/RrLcprCyvh

False. She was deported because she was illegally present in the country and had illegally re-entered after a previous deportation.

I have a feeling that she was guilty of entering this country illegally. It's a bad situation she created.

OK, she was in the U.S. illegally and therefore didn’t have a valid driver’s license. Plus, a computer check showed she had been returned to Mexico in 2001 after being detained in 2000 for crossing the border illegally, which she did again before settling in Ohio.
Licensed driver? Nope. Legal U.S. citizen? Nope.
I think we're done here.

1. In USA illegally;
2. Driving without a license; and
3. Ignoring a law to enhance safety of public safety officer

She breaks at least 3 laws, and gets deported. Seems logical to me.

Had no DL license and had been thrown out of US before – she defied our laws and came back in

Unlicensed driver previously deported. Message of the day: Follow the law, folks.

Really not seeing the problem here. She gambled as an illegal and lost. Sucks for her and a shame she abused her family that way.

In total agreement with this decision, tbh

If this country is really going to deport people for driving slow in the left lane, sign me up for the Trump Trainhttps://t.co/ASxqL1AHjr
