Stephen Yale-Loehr Commented on the Deportation of US Citizen Teenager

Stephen Yale-Loehr was quoted in an article by the Associated Press (AP) that was picked up by a number of other media outlets, including the CBS and Fox websites. In an article about the U.S. citizen teen from Texas who was recently "deported" to Colombia by mistake, he noted that hundreds of U.S. citizens are wrongfully deported or detained every year. "There are a variety of legitimate reasons why somebody might not appear to be a U.S. citizen at first glance," he said. "It's the duty of the U.S. federal immigration agency to make sure that we do not detain and deport U.S. citizens erroneously. And this, unfortunately, happened in this case."
