HB 109, SB 220 --(FL) Driver’s License Citizen Protection Act, Repeal of Real ID Act

She Was An American Girl Raised On Promises (Of Due Process)

BTC- The following tale falls into the "when biometrics doesn't solve all your immigration actor problems" category.

c/o The League of Ordinary Gentlemen
So, in April of 2011, ICE proceeded to deport a 14-year-old American citizen, who spoke no Spanish but apparently spoke excellent colloquial English, to Colombia. It took her grandmother and the Dallas Police nearly a year of searching to find her. Jakadrian was issued a work card by the Colombian government, and has been working as a house cleaner ever since her arrival in (I assume) Bogota. There is some issue in Colombia, which is holding on to the now 16-year-old American citizen; perhaps she has been accused of a crime there. But she’s not home yet, more than a year after she ran away and not quite a year since she was deported out of her own nation.
