U.S. Citizen Wrongly Deported

This article in today's Washington Post chronicles the story of Durnis Perez, a naturalized American citizen who was wrongly deported, then served three years in prison for "violating" U.S. immigration laws. Clearly, this is not a common occurance, but it does highlight the need for our national immigration priorities to be refocused. Citizens should not have to worry that their government might mistake them for undocumented residents.
