How can the U.S. allow someone to be sent back to persecution?

Maybe because he's here illegally? Try sneaking into any foreign country and then protest and demand rights,see how far you get.

I live here in Mexico. He is lying. Puerto Vallarta has a thriving gay community ad I see them everyday in Chihuahua. They seem to show they are gay, there is no mistaking it. I have talked to them at parties and they seem to fit right in with the straights. Just another ploy.

I agree. You don't read too many news stories about Americans illegally emigrating to places like China, Russia, Cuba, North Korea, Canada, Mexico, or Myanmar.

This is different. Sometimes people fleeing persecution can't go through the legal channels because it's impractical as a result of their circumstances. If a slavery-allowing country's slave ran away to the US we would not turn them away because "they are an illegal".

Homosexuality is not a federally recognized status and therefore is not used as consideration for anything. It's not right but that's the way it is.

Just like so many other words in the dictionary gays refuse to accept and being here 'illegally' is one of them. You are a moving, thinking, breathing human violation and a defect.

Normally I would agree with you but I think the issue here is scope and extent of persecution. Even if some localities in Mexico are not good for gay people, I don't think one can say they entire country is. Parts have legalized gay marriage and as another poster pointed out, there is a thriving gay community. It is not the same as deporting someone to Uganda, Russia, or Iran.
