Good Enough for Government Work

The Agitator

ICE mistakenly deports a 14-year-old U.S. citizen to Colombia.

Turner has been searching for Jakadrien since the fall of 2010, when she ran away from home. She was 14 years old and distraught over the loss of her grandfather and her parents’ divorce.

Turner searched for months for a clue.

“God just kept leading me,” she said. “I wake up in the middle of the night and do whatever God told me to do, and I found her.”

Turner said with the help of Dallas Police, she found her granddaughter in the most unexpected place – Colombia.

Where she had mistakenly been deported by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in April of 2011.

“They didn’t do their work,” Turner said. “How do you deport a teenager and send her to Colombia without a passport, without anything?”

News 8 learned that Jakadrien somehow ended up in Houston, where she was arrested by Houston police for theft. She gave Houston police a fake name. When police in Houston ran that name, it belonged to a 22-year-old illegal immigrant from Columbia, who had warrants for her arrest.

So ICE officials stepped in.

News 8 has learned ICE took the girl’s fingerprints, but somehow didn’t confirm her identity and deported her to Colombia, where the Colombian government gave her a work card and released her.

She doesn’t speak Spanish, and has no ties to Colombia whatsoever. The Colombian government is now refusing to release her from a detention center.

This is some Hall of Fame-level incompetence. Want to bet that no one gets fired?

Incompetence!!!??? Can you say LIAR. If she had not claimed to be an illegal alien who had already been given a deportation order then she would not have been deported. This is in no way the fault of ICE. This is karma coming back to bite the LIAR in the ass.

Nowhere did she claim to be an illegal alien, she just used a fake name that she likely didn’t know belonged to an illegal. Further, the following sentence pretty much blows your neo-con statist remarks out of the water:

“News 8 has learned ICE took the girl’s fingerprints, but somehow didn’t confirm her identity and deported her to Colombia, where the Colombian government gave her a work card and released her.”

Try reading the story instead of just throwing out the latest Limbaugh talking points.


If you claim to be someone who is an illegal alien then you are claiming to be an illegal alien. It may not have been her intent to claim to be an illegal alien but never the less that is what she did. Taking her fingerprints is meaningless unless either she or the illegal alien she claimed to be had prints on file. I don’t know about you but my fingerprints were not on file when I was 15.

Your story was incomplete. Try writing the story instead of selecting those “facts” that support your agenda.

Just as I would with you or any commentator I take what is said and look at the facts available from other sources. I rarely listen to Rush but when I do I enjoy him. Like him or dislike him you have to appreciate his passion.


Didn’t matter if her fingerprints were on file or not. The illegal alien’s were and they didn’t match. Sorry if that hurts your little statist “nanny can do no wrong” mindset.


Ouch! That was a burn… or would be I guess if I had a little statist “nanny can do no wrong” mindset. You obviously have a disagreement with illegal immigration policiy and think this is your chance to take a shot at it. But the fact remains we have a serious illegal immigration problem and we badly need to become more active in deporting illegals not less active. And the young lady in question was at best “stupid” and got what she deserved. Her stupid mistake does not and should not be blamed on ICE.
