Dozens Deported Monthly in Shelby County

Henry Telles sits in the Shelby County Detention Center, charged with multiple counts of rape and child molestation. His bond is $30,000. But Telles isn’t going to be released on bond, and even if he is cleared of those crimes, he won’t be returning to live in Shelby County. His future destinations could include prison or deportation or both. Headlined by cases such as Telles’, immigration and deportation have become heavily debated issues in America – Shelby County included.
