On Tuesday morning cops found a man, who remains unnamed, contemplating jumping off a bridge. According to SDP Noticias, the man originally from the state of Guerrero felt very lonely and depressed in the city.


Cops approached him and offered him tacos. At first he was like “Meh, they kinda look good, but no.”

The officer tried a little harder to persuade him by saying, “Yes, you want some.”


Like anyone walking up to a taquero for seconds (guilty ??), he was afraid of being judged.

Trying not to laugh, the cop assured him no one would say anything, and then…


SUCCESS!

Cops convinced him to walk away from the bridge. They told him to have some tacos so he’d be able to think with clarity.


These genius cops took him to Taquería Corona and hooked him up with a mixed variety.

He was later taken to a center to help treat his depression.

Your Throat Will Knot Watching These Latinos Tell You About The Day ICE Took Their Parents

Don’t Deport My ParentsMeet the kids torn by America’s broken immigration system.

“Me and my dad were able to see her, handcuffed and being put into this van.”

This month, the Supreme Court will make a final ruling on the Deferred Action for Parents of American and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). It has the potential to impact the lives of millions. These American citizens or lawful permanent residents are literally watching Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers arrest and take their parents and family members. Now that the Obama administration has green-lit a new round of immigration raids, families like these live in more fear than ever. How would you react to seeing your father surrounded by 15 officers with guns shouting demands? Not only are many young adults and teenagers watching their parents be forcibly removed (some even held at gun point), but ICE gives no notification to the family about the status of their loved ones. While they think they might be at the detention center lining up legal council, they, in reality, could already be halfway to Nogales, Mexico.
