Here’s a reason why they may not be such a “Good Thing.”
US Citizen Deported to Mexico, oops!

The family of an American citizen who disappeared after apparently being mistakenly deported to Tijuana a month ago has filed suit asking the U.S. government to help find him.
Pedro Guzman, 29, a Lancaster construction worker, is developmentally disabled and penniless, and he hasn’t been heard from since May 11, said his family at a news conference in Los Angeles on Monday.
His mother, Maria Carbajal, said she spent the last month in Tijuana living out of her car while searching in vain for her son. She said neither the U.S. nor the Mexican government has helped in her search for him.
“I’ve done a lot,” she said, “and I haven’t found him.”
In a statement, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said they deport a person only “when all available credible evidence suggests the person is an alien. That process was followed here and ICE has no reason to believe that it improperly removed Pedro Guzman.”

So what, we got one wrong, where’s the harm?Ã‚Â It’s not like we did it on purpose.
Does anyone really believe that this would have happened to a 29 year old, white male?Ã‚Â I don’t.
