Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

American Citizen Faced Deportation

Rate this Entry

NBC News Chicago has reported that Eduardo Caraballo, a United States Citizen, was taken into custody by Federal Immigration authorities on Friday and held in immigration detention for three days.

Immigration Officials detained Mr. Caraballa despite the fact that he repeatedly told officers that he was a United States Citizen, and his mother corroborated his claim by presenting his
birth certificate, and his state-issued ID.  Even though they were provided proof of Mr. Caraballa's United States citizenship, Immigration Officials indicated their intention to commence deportation proceedings.

Caraballa was released Monday afternoon after Congressman Luis Gutierrez was contacted.

"Here we had an
American citizen, that the federal government, not state authorities,
but the federal government, with all their technology and all their
information capacity that they have, could not determine, for more than
three days, his status as an American citizen. It's very, very, very
dangerous ground to tread." -Congressman Luis Gutierrez.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials had no comment.

    Why 287g and Secure Communities are bad ideas. Local community gets sued on this not ICE.
