Thread: this is funny..

    I noticed that in the filing, his attorneys did not say what he said to the ICE agents the first time. Clearly in his first stateement he said he was an alien. Just like that other crazy guy who said he was Russian and got deported. If you are crazy and say you are an alien, you are just frakking yourself up.

    now what?
    I read something very similar to this just yesterday.

    It's quite sad to see an entire system so completely out of control, causing harm to the very same people it's supposed to protect.

    So how is this funny? Because the poor man was mentally ill? Or because he was beaten and abused by prison guards? I can hardly imagine how afraid and sad that poor man must have felt. You have no feelings - another example of the culture of narcissism.

    I think he means it was funny because the guy was deported from his own country. This happens quite a lot. Why he was detained and interrogated again when arriving with a US passport is beyond me. Clearly the CBP don't talk to the State Department/USCIS.

    Moron Brit did not even read the story. USCIS was not involved in these events. And CBP and ICE investigate misuse of U.S. passports by aliens. It quite more frequent for aliens to misuse U.S. passports than for U.S. citizens to be deported mistakenly. In fact it is very rare. Usually only the mentally ill who at one point claim to be aliens.

    Perfect thread to have some REAL immigration related discussion.

    Alright, be my guest, let's have some real debate on the issues. I'm all ears.

    But f*cknut FedNUT, he was issued a US PASSPORT by the State Dept! If that isn't enough then I don't know what is. His "immigration record" should never have been. He's a USC not an immigrant.

    Yes it does happen quite often too:

    Study: Some Disabled Immigrants Face Deportation

    U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents with mental disabilities have been mistakenly deported because they were unable to effectively defend themselves, according to a study released by the American Civil Liberties Union and the non-profit Human Rights Watch.

    In one 2000 case, a U.S. citizen with cognitive disabilities was arrested by immigration officials in New York on return from a trip to visit her family in Jamaica. She was deported. In another in 2008, a U.S. citizen with bipolar disorder and developmental disabilities was deported to Mexico, and from there to Honduras and Guatemala, after signing a statement indicating he was a Mexican national. It took four months to return the man to the U.S. And in yet another case, a U.S. citizen with developmental disabilities was apprehended at a county jail in California where he was serving a sentence for trespassing. He was deported to Mexico in 2007, where he was lost for three months before he was located and returned to his family in California.

    In the study, Human Rights Watch and the ACLU also interview 104 non-citizens with mental disabilities and report that many of them face a likelier road to deportation because they have a limited ability to express themselves. Many of the estimated 57,000 mentally ill immigrant detainees in the U.S. will have no attorneys, and no way to notify judges that they're incapacitated. In the interviews, some of which were conducted in Texas detention centers, one individual did not know what a judge was, others were hallucinating, some did not understand the concept of deportation. Several could not read or write, tell time, name their birth place or say what day it was.

    The problem here is that a US Citizen should NEVER be deported, by accident or otherwise. This would be like sentencing people before a verdict.

    It's the pressure. Pressure to deport, pressure to deny visas, pressure to show you're "tough" on those who aren't well liked.
