FORKS, WA — The fate of a 16-year-old Forks resident who was detained by Border Patrol agents late last month has been decided, while reports of new detentions surface.

Carlos Bernabe, 16, will willingly return to Mexico to be with his family, Forks Mayor Nedra Reed said.

"We have been working on Carlos' issues all week," Reed said late last week.

"All of his remaining family have returned to Mexico.

"I spoke to Immigration, and he is being held in a facility in Seattle, and we are trying to get in touch with his father and uncle so they know where to meet him.

"He will be flown back to Mexico on a voluntary return."

Reed became aware that the boy was in federal detention in the Seattle area about two weeks ago.

He could have been released to a relative, Reed said, but his stepmother would not pick him up because she was an illegal immigrant.

She returned to Mexico, where the teen's father is, "out of fear," Reed said.

Reed said she knew several people who would have taken care of the boy, but that it was decided that he should be with his family.

"Although there are wonderful people in Forks who would take care and raise him, it was determined that he would be best off with his family, and he should be home with his parents by the weekend," Reed said.

Wow, I wonder if the step "mother" would have picked up the kid if he were hers?

What a happy ending. Family reunification certainly can happen in Mexico.

If your story is true, and the family is doing "great" in Mexico; why wouldn’t they want their son to remain with them? This is simply another illustration of the rampant squandering of taxpayers’ money, and the scams illegal aliens routinely perpetrate.

In good faith, this boy was safely returned to his family. They didn’t drop him off at the border and tell him to fend for himself. They flew him home, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers. He obviously had no appreciation for the kindness he received; and promptly, and in violation of our immigration laws, returned to his illegal alien lifestyle in this country.

Most likely, he’s receiving a tax-funded education. Heck, he may even be receiving tax-funded health benefits. He’ll later whine about not being treated fairly, or not being given in-state tuition due to his immigration status. Yet, you can’t understand why citizens of this country are fed up.

Well now that we know he is back in the states illegally the authorities can pick him up again, he shouldn't be too hard to find in Forks, WA right? And this time they should just drop him off at the border. Anyone know the number to call to report him?

Since he was deported once and snuck back in, isn't he a felon now?

This story makes me feel all fuzzy inside. It's nice for the Federal government to be a free air taxie service to illegal aliens. I wonder who pays the bills?

ICE: US Immigration and Customs Enforcement

ICE: Report suspicious activity 1-866-DHS-2-ICE
