Read Des Moines DREAMer dies within weeks after being sent back to Mexico’s violence by Rekha Basu (Des Moines Register)
Manuel Antonio Cano Pacheco should have graduated from high school in Des Moines last month. The oldest of four siblings should have walked across a stage in a cap and gown to become a proud symbol to his sister and brothers of the rewards of hard work and education. Instead, Manuel died a brutal death alone in a foreign land, a symbol of gang supremacy in a country plagued by violent drug cartels. It happened three weeks after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement returned him to Mexico, a country he had left at age 3 when his parents brought him here without a visa.

And apparently it’s now common that deportees are being kidnapped and ransomed once they’re back now?
