Trace Bates Begs For Urgent Help From Followers
The Bringing Up Bates star noted that anyone who has seen the family’s recent vlog already knows what is going on. But, for those that don’t… His family is in trouble. Turns out, both his wife and her family are facing an urgent risk of being deported.
I, of course, want do everything in my power to save my wife, my newborn son, & my in-laws from being deported & will need a groundswell of support to get the attention of the US government.
Trace Bates explained anyone willing to help could sign the petition linked to his bio asking the U.S. government to continue to protect his family and allow them to stay within the United States.

Bringing Up Bates Fans Appreciated The Irony
Trace Bates was getting the support he requested from other members of his family in the comments. The support, however, seemed to stop there. Everyone else called attention to the “ironic” situation Trace and his wife found themselves in. Bringing Up Fans pointed out that Trace Bates was very much a “build the wall” supporter. So, his post begging for help felt like a massive contradiction.
One fan penned in a comment liked nearly 300 times: “The hypocrisy is outstanding. So for you it’s okay for them to stay but for the millions of people who have immigrated here from Mexico it’s not? Check your privilege.”
A second fan asked in a comment liked over 250 times: “Why didn’t they go through the proper means to become US citizens like others that wish to stay here? Why did they feel they didn’t need to do this?”
