Four years earlier in an attempt to avoid gang recruitment in Honduras, Avila-Lopez crossed the border illegally at age 16 to be with his mother in Los Angeles, KPCC reported.

In September he was detained and slated for deportation, but his lawyer argued Avila-Lopez would face danger from gang members if he had to go back to Honduras, and a stay was automatically granted so his case could be reviewed.

How can you mistakenly deport an illegal alien? He was here illegally a gang member and should have been deported.

The la raza, opened borders clowns are always trying to garner sympathy for the illegals and show how flawed the system is, so they can continue to work it to their advantage. It's nice to see that the liars that try and bend the truth are called out by our Topix, Patriots..

Probably another illegal on Napolitano's list of "we have funds to help him change his ways."

It sound more like he was a gang member who feared facing jail in Honduras. He knew that as long as he was in the U.S. he did not have to worry about going to jail.

I'd say you're probably right on the mark.

What's the problem? He was in the country illegally and he was deported.

Deportation is not a punishment, it just removes a person who has no right to be here and returns them to the country of their birth.

Exactly! Deportation is not punishment it is a form of amnesty. If you are jailed and fined then deported that is punishment.
