Marginally increased border enforcement has given rise to a new sub-category of the sob story
genre — Mexican citizens returned to their own country and required to live there. Elvira Arellano
(a convicted felon
) is the queen of this category, since she was repatriated
to Mexico last year and the squawking hasn`t stopped since
Carlos Martinez was in a state of total panic after being deported from the United States to the Mexican border city of Matamoros â€” he had no money, nowhere to go, and, worst of all, he didn`t speak Spanish. The 30-year-old New Yorker had left Mexico as a baby; when the Department of Homeland Security sent him south last May after he had served a prison term, he landed in a foreign land."I was crying when I went over the border. It was just a big joke to the U.S. immigration officials to have this Mexican who doesn`t speak Spanish. But I was terrified," Martinez said.

Funny how Raza types demand that we American citizens speak Spanish; but Mexicans, not as much.
