"In next year's Statistical Yearbook and press
releases, Esteban Tiznado-Reynes' deportation Tuesday morning from the
Florence Service Processing Center to Mexico will be used to show
Immigration and Custom Enforcement's (ICE) efficacy in ridding the
country of 'criminal aliens.' But
the truth is that in his case and thousands of others, ICE is
disregarding the rules for handling probative evidence of U.S.
citizenship,and unlawfully deporting people. Ignoring
information from a local non-profit about a 2008 trial in which a jury
believed Tiznado's evidence of U.S. citizenship and thus found him 'not
guilty' of 'Illegal Reentry' (a charge predicated on alienage), ICE
agents Monday refused to heed Tiznado's plea to appear in an immigration
court and simply dumped him Mexico." - Jacqueline Stevens, Nov. 30, 2011.
