Give your correct name and you won't be deported. So simple! She's 15 years old, not a goddamn toddler. At that age you should know right from wrong and have some idea on how to carry yourself as a young adult.

Anyways...It doesn't sound like she was ever headed in the right direction of her life in the first place. She's now pregnant! What's next - welfare and a housing project for her??
I guess we should just give up on children. (sarcasm)

Sad thing is that the adults in this thread are acting like teenagers.

If this girl doesn't speak Spanish; the ball got dropped, if she does speak it, then it's her butt in a sling since she gave the judge probable cause to deport her on top of her lies about being an illegal.

So again, you and many others apparently believe that deportation should be exclusively based on the word of a teenage girl and absolutely zero identity verification. Are there no reasonable people here because this is like living in the gd Twilight Zone.

The absolute incredible thing to me is that if she had given birth in Columbia, her baby would be a Colombian citizen (jus soli is recognized there), with no claim to U.S. citizenship (she hasn't resided in the U.S. for the required two years after her 14th birthday yet, to have been able to solely pass derivative citizenship to her baby EDIT: However the baby could get "expedited citizenship" from the U.S. citizen grandparents, as long as it was applied for before the age of 18)...

Isn't that a shocker to anyone else?...

Lucky for the yet-unborn baby that they acted quickly to bring her back...

A mistake was made. Some try to paint this 15 yearold as a victim. If she is a victim she is one in large part due to her own behaviors and actions. She was arrested and deported in the same hour. She had opprotunity to be honest and tell the truth. She elected to live a lie. The system failed no two ways about this. But the first and primary failure was due to her own actions.

Lots of 14 yr olds make stupid mistakes But for someone who makes more than 70,000 per yr to not know if someone who doesn't speak fluent Spanish
may not be from Latin America

The story speaks for itself. Besides, where exactly is she supposed to learn Spanish from?

Bizarre?

The story makes it clear that she doesn't know a lick of Spanish.

Why are you willing to believe in the veracity of the story except for THAT point?
