Watch Out!! You May Be Next!!

This story just royally pisses me off!! No words can truly express what I'm thinking right now except YOU STUPID SONS OF BITCHES. YOU STUPID, IGNORANT JACKASSES. HOW FUCKING DARE YOU!!

TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) -- Maria Carvajal walks the sweltering streets of Tijuana, Mexico, clutching a photo of her mentally disabled son, who she says went missing after being deported more than a month ago, despite being a U.S. citizen.

Carvajal says she has searched hospitals, shelters and jails here looking for her 29-year-old son, Pedro Guzman of Lancaster, California, who was jailed for a misdemeanor trespassing violation, then sent to Mexico on May 11.

Guzman's relatives sued the Department of Homeland Security and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department last week in federal court, claiming Guzman was a U.S. citizen and had been wrongfully deported and demanding that U.S. authorities help find him.

"I'm searching for him because he's my son. But it should be (U.S. authorities) searching for him," Carvajal, a 49-year-old fast-food restaurant worker from Lancaster, said Sunday in Tijuana. "They made the mistake. Not me."

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed Guzman had been deported and said the agency had done so correctly. "ICE has no reason to believe that it improperly removed Pedro Guzman," read a statement.

Officials at the U.S. consulate in Tijuana say they have made calls to help search for Guzman and asked other consulates in Mexico if they have information.

"We are doing things to help that we are not obliged to do," said consulate spokeswoman Lorena Blanco.

Carvajal, a brown-haired woman with glasses, said he called the family on May 11 to say he was deported but the phone cut off before she could find out where he was.

She said she never thought she would end up having to search Tijuana's hospital and morgues for her son, but vowed to keep on doing it because "I have to." She is not carrying her son's birth certificate with her, saying her main concern is finding him.

Guzman can't read or write and has trouble processing information. Carvajal fears he could be an easy victim for robbers.

The lawsuit says Guzman was asked about his immigration status in jail and responded that he was born in California of Mexican parents.

Sometime after that, the Sheriff's Department identified him as a non-citizen, obtained his signature for voluntary removal from the United States and turned him over to Customs and Immigration Enforcement, a division of the Homeland Security Department, for deportation.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, which helped file the lawsuit, says it has Guzman's birth certificate showing he was born at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.

It also says that Guzman had previously done jail time for drug possession, so he had a record that could have been cross-checked before a deportation decision was made.

The Sheriff's Department has said it followed procedures correctly.

In California, Guzman's brother, Michael Guzman, said last week that during a phone call to the family the 29-year-old said he had been deported and asked a passer-by where he was. The family could hear the person respond: "Tijuana."

Michael Guzman said his parents were from Mexico, but seven children, including Pedro, were born in California. Pedro, who takes the last name of his father, speaks both English and Spanish.

Carvajal said she keeps seeing glimpses of people on the Tijuana streets that she thinks are her son and runs toward them. But each time she finds she is mistaken.

"I have to fight for my son," she said.

First of all, how fucking dare you deport this man!! He is a United States citizen. He was born here, therefore he is an American. How fucking dare you deport him to Mexico.

Second of all, how fucking dare you make him sign a "voluntary" deportation order. The man is mentally disabled. He can't read or write. So, how the hell was he supposed to understand what the hell you forced upon him? He couldn't!!

Third of all, the U.S. consulate in Tijuana IS OBLIGATED to help search for him. He is a U.S. CITIZEN you fucking morons.

If this man turns up dead or injured, I would sue the hell out of these bastards. It was THEIR ACTIONS that caused this. Therefore, they are responsible for what happens to him. These people are just sick sons of bitches. They think that they did absolutely nothing wrong. Gee, big surprise. The government and law enforcement think they NEVER DO ANYTHING WRONG.

So remember that AMERICANS. If you're mentally disabled, a U.S. citizen born to Mexican parents or just someone that law enforcement or the government doesn't like, your ass is going to be deported.

    Geez, if they think they did everything correctly - by the book, then its time for a new book.

    "The Sheriff's Department has said it followed procedures correctly."

    If procedures were followed correctly, this would have never happened.

    Exactly!! If procedures were followed correctly, Pedro Guzman would still be in the United States instead of God knows where!!

    It really is simply though. If you even look slightly like you could be from another country, your ass is going to be deported. They're not even going to bother to figure out if you're a U.S. citizen, or a legal immigrant. They're just going to ship you off to whatever country they damn well please. They'll just classify you as illegal!!

    How the hell can they even defend their actions? Oh that's right, they don't have to. They're always right!!

    Wake up America!!
