Where is Pedro Guzman?

Nobody knows, including Pedro himself, at last word. While he was in jail for a misdemeanor trespassing violation, the 29-year-old Los Angeles-born man from Lancaster CA was mistakenly identified as a non-citizen, and turned over to Homeland Security for deportation in April. In mid-May, he called a relative, probably from Tijuana, but he wasn't sure. No word since then.

This week, his family filed suit against the LA County sheriff's department and the Department of Homeland Security. "My worst fear is that he is no longer living," explained Guzman's brother Michael. "He doesn't know how to read. He often can't remember his family phone number. He even gets lost if he gets off the main street in Lancaster." Michael Guzman confirmed that his brother attended special education classes before he dropped out of school; he speaks English and Spanish, but is unable to read in either language.

Pedro Guzman is an American citizen, a disabled man, abandoned by US government officials, alone in an unfamiliar place, after a misdemeanor trespassing violation. They could have looked up his birth certificate, or called his family, but nobody bothered. Now, nobody knows where he is. Or if he's even still alive.

At left above, a photo of Pedro Guzman, as shown at this local news website.

UPDATE (7 August): Pedro Guzman turned up alive in early August.

Thank you for posting this sad story.

I hope Pedro Guzman is found soon. It's every disabled child mother's nightmare to have something like this occur. People are so ignorant of the limitations of others and reform is needed on a general scale.

I am praying for him and his family, and that something like this NEVER happens again.

The U.S. government kidnapped a mentally challenged man, and left him in Mexico. I wish more people could focus on that and leave the immigration issue second.

While my heart goes out to his mother, I also understand his arrest record was less than commendable. Beside drug and sales, theft and generally bizarre behavior--police saw him in a different light. He was sentenced to 120 days. He opted for deportation after 20 days. Mas menso que mi tia Cayetana. He misrepresented himself as undocumented to facilitate that end.

Pedro's alive! He was found Sunday and currently is in a jail in Antelope Valley!

mobile phones price and performance are a

pair of contradiction.
The word "shanzhai" is very popular in China. It is industry phenomenon of imitation, high quality and low price.

Moreover, cell phones are the representative

of them.The global financial crisis led to a significant shrinkage of assets for people. "china wholesale" demonstrate the might. most of them would like buy the cheap cell phones now .

fanny said...

Through google search engine, when you put in "discount cell phones", you will find more than 15,000 pieces of related information. Cell phone china has been concerned in the

world. Many international sellers can get a considerable profit by ways of wholesale cell phones from China and switch

selling. So it is a very good job on cell phones

wholesale
in the current financial crisis.
