HOUSTON, TX – A minor traffic violation from 2008 is turning one man’s life upside down.

Gustavo Rubio was transferred to immigration after going through the court process for his traffic issue.

Despite living in Texas for 20 years, he is being deported to Mexico, leaving his mother alone in Houston.

Gustavo has no family in Mexico and his mom says she is going blind.

An online petition was launched to try to stop the deportation. Hopefully the immigration services have the vision to do the right thing.
