So it begins. Anyone see the problem with racial profiling now? Go ahead and start your dumb racial slandering comments, because in the end I was right. US Citizens are not even safe.

LOLz gang member. If he sold crack and meth then they should have sent him handcuffed and muzzled with a bag over his head until he reached Ecuador. Make that our new US prison system.

Soooooo,
Where is this guy now?

Still here!
ICE did NOT deport him

Maybe this could have been avoided if he spoke English?

Another reason to update ICE's database information. This made them look foolish, and its a computer thing. With all the people looking for work, this is an opportunity to train more ice workers and get some people to run their computers and update them more frequently.

After reading the comments it just re-enforces my belief that Colorado is the hate state. Just go back to ammendment 2 so many years ago.

He was almost deported? Is that like being almost pregnant? It appears he wasn't deported, so what is his complaint?

Don't they print this stuff in Spanish? Just get an ID, just be able to speak the language! Do you think if I were to go to Korea they'd be lenient to me just because I didn't speak Korean?

Wow, if those pigs tried to deport me they'd be sorry. Just another example of cops thinking the law doesn't apply to them.
