Predictably, in a putative excess of zeal, the fascist fux of Homeland Security and the notoriously brutal, stupid LA County pigs FUCKED UP, big-time!
They 'deported' a mentally challenged US CITIZEN to Mexico, where he has disappeared. His family fears for his life. He speaks both English and Spanish, but can neither read or writer either one. He called a family member from Tijuana, but apparently had no idea where he was.
Neither HSA nor the LACounty Pigs have admitted any responsibility in the matter; nor have they undertaken to try to help find the guy.
But that's okay. They followed procedures. They got the right paperwork.
Besides, what's the big deal: he's just another dumb, criminal spic.
He's got a record, and was in jail when they deported him.
That makes it alright, right?
This story has gotten some local (LA) coverage, and I heard about it on the NPR show, Latino USA, but I do not think I've heard any other information about the case.
That shouldn't come as ANY surprise...
