Deported US Citizen Johann Francis Interviewed on CNN

Yesterday CNN's Don Lemon interviewed Johann Francis, a U.S. citizen ICE deported in 1999, and Rachel Rosenbloom, a Northeastern University Law School Professor. Professor Rosenbloom is an expert on citizenship and immigration law. They discussed Mr. Francis's 10 year forced exile in Jamaica and why the Arizona law and the continued lack of legal counsel for people in ICE detention means more US citizens will find themselves in his position.

CNN Producer Tina Kim linked the interview on her blog, and you can watch it here.

Mr. Francis's story was first reported on this blog when he returned for Christmas in 2009. You can read the details here.
