    how an African-American girl who speaks no Spanish is mistaken for a foreign national.

    This sums it up perfectly, but geesh... there are no words. Thanks for calling our attention to this.

      that anyone could be so maliciously incompetent, but there are a great many commenters here supportive of such deportations. I wonder if they'd be so supportive of their kids disappeared for a few years and then turned up in a foreign country. NOT

        However, some of us do think it's a great idea to deport illegal aliens who commit crimes. I mean, if you're here illegally but stay out of trouble, most New Yorkers, at any rate, have no problem with you (you might find different views in places like Southern California and Arizona), but if you are here illegally and make trouble, why shouldn't you be deported? I can think of specific exceptions, such as someone who's been here since they were 4 and gets arrested for a misdemeanor while married to an American, with American children, etc. But the basic idea that adults (I emphasize: adults) here illegally who commit crimes should be deported is one that is undoubtedly overwhelmingly popular in the US, and if implemented properly, I would not assume Latino Americans would automatically oppose it and would be pretty interested to see the results of a poll asking such a question.
