Don't Worry, They're Investigating

Government at work. Dallas teen missing since 2010 was mistakenly deported | wfaa.com Dallas - Fort Worth A Dallas runaway gives Houston Police a fake name. Happens to match an illegal alien. So they call in Immigration and Customs Enforcement from the Department of Insanity Homeland Security.

Without bothering to check anything - like say fingerprints - they deport her to Columbia.

That's right, the US government spent your tax dollars to deport a US citizen MINOR - who speaks absolutely no Spanish - to Columbia.
"ICE takes these allegations very seriously," said ICE Director of Public Affairs Brian Hale. " At the direction of [the Department of Homeland Security], ICE is fully and immediately investigating this matter in order to expeditiously determine the facts of this case."

ICE officials also noted there have been instances where ICE has seen cases of individuals providing inaccurate information regarding who they are and their immigration status for ulterior motives.
These geniuses could screw up a free lunch.

I published this under the "Cops behaving badly" label, because I haven't bothered to create a "cops behaving stupidly" category. If even one person in this whole chain of events had bothered to CHECK the fingerprints against those of the person they thought they had arrested... well, that would be too much like "work" or "following standard procedures" or something, and would interfere with important things like lunch, and doughnut breaks.
