      CHICAGO (WLS) --
      An Army veteran who served two tours of duty in Afghanistan will be deported to Mexico, a judge ruled last week.

      On Sunday morning, family and supporters of Army Private 1st class Miguel Perez, Jr., who was born in Mexico and grew up in Chicago, gathered at a Pilsen church.

      "My son fought for this country, not for Mexico," said his mother Esperanza Medina.

      Perez's parents said it's unfair that their son, who legally came to the U.S. at age 8 and fought for his country, may not be able to call the U.S. home.

      Perez, 38, was a legal permanent resident when he joined the Army and said he thought he became a legal U.S. citizen when he enlisted. However, that was not the case.

      About four years after leaving the military, Perez served prison time for a felony drug offense which sparked the deportation proceedings.

      A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office spokesperson said Perez was targeted for removal only after being convicted of a felony for selling drugs, after he left the Army in 2010.

      For years, the Perez family has been fighting back against his deportation, saying if Perez returns to Mexico his life could be in danger.

      Last week, a judge also denied the torture claim, said his attorney Chris Bergin.

    • Perez wasn't just dabbling in drugs. He was caught with a laptop case full of cocaine:

      Perez said he struggled to hold down jobs. He sought treatment at the VA hospital in Maywood where doctors diagnosed him with post-traumatic stress disorder. He was supposed to return for more tests to determine whether he also had a traumatic brain injury. But the hours of waiting and slow progress were dispiriting.

      In the meantime, he reconnected with a childhood friend who provided free drugs and alcohol. On the night of Nov. 26, 2008, while with that friend, Perez handed a laptop case full of cocaine to an undercover officer. Perez pleaded guilty to delivering less than 100 grams of cocaine and was sentenced to serve half of a 15-year sentence.

    • Maybe he DID serve the country, but...he is too stupid to apply for citizenship, and he's a criminal now. He's not serving the country anymore.

      I'm glad he's going.

    • There are USA citizens whose parents and grandparents and great-grandparents who were citizens that committed felonies leading to life in prison and some receiving the death penalty. Where is the outcry for THEIR punishments?

      Shit happens. The fucker could have kept a low profile and shied away from the types of fuckers who involve themselves with nefarious activities.

      Fuck the dude. He made his choices and they were the wrong ones. If sheer stupidity is involved the USA does not need those types of folks within.

    • I bet if he was some politicians son he would get a slap on the wrist. Evidence would be lost and he would be charged with parking on the sidewalk or something.

      Okay, so he didn't "fight" for "his" country. He got a free ticket to Afghanistan with free room and board, and probably spent the time being a mexican and doing drugs.

      Comes back to the U.S. and starts spreading this poison to how many other people?

      Build the wall and throw him over it.

    • What the media conveniently always forgets to mention everytime they run these sob stories is that pretty much everybody being deported now have been convicted of at least one additional serious crime (other than being here illegally)

      actually the studies have found out that if your allowed to have as much as you want, the desire slowly goes away. it is more like when someone says 'ya can't do that' that makes you want to do it even more. that's the real reason there is a war on drugs. the war is to get you on them and then keep you on them. 'that side' wins. lots of $$$$ at every turn and the POWER, or feeling there of, fuels/thrills their bodies and thoughts.
