Man born at Ben Taub returns after he's wrongly deported Immigration Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

Nearly three months after U.S. immigration officials dumped Luis Alberto Delgado in Mexico despite his insistence that he is a U.S. citizen, the 19-year-old was permitted to re-enter the country last weekend with the U.S. government's blessing.

Delgado said U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents cleared him to return to the United States on Friday, roughly 85 days after he was detained by immigration officials and pressured to sign papers that cleared the way for his removal to Mexico.

Steven Cribby, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, declined to comment on Delgado's case.

On Monday in Houston, Delgado said he was pondering a lawsuit against the U.S. government, calling his case "an injustice."

U.S. Border Patrol agents detained Delgado after a traffic stop in South Texas on June 17 and held him for eight hours, questioning him about his citizenship.

Delgado said he gave immigration agents a copy of his birth certificate showing he was born at Houston's Ben Taub Hospital, a state of Texas identification card and a Social Security card.

This guy only considers himself a citizen when it is convenient. He is NOT. In his heart he is a Mexican and will always be. United States CITIZENS who are PROUD to be here learn the language. It seems immigrants from ALL OVER the world want to be here and learn English except those that come from south of the border.

Hey Luis, if you want people to believe that you are a US citizen, act like one and learn to speak English. Now you want to sue the government so you can live like a king in Mexico for the rest of your life? My advise to you Luis, figure out if you want to be an American or a Mexican and if you want to be an American, learn English and speak it, find a job and pay taxes like the rest of us American's.

Funny...during my travels thru Europe and other countries,  "SPEAK ENGLISH" demands, where heard every time I ran into someone from the states.
