From prom to deportation

By Emma Lacey-Bordeaux, CNN

(CNN) – Even three years after the fact, Fredi Alcazar Dominguez still trembles thinking about his deportation.

[3:35] "They put you on a bus to the border and then at the border they just leave you at your own risk."

Alcazar Dominguez spent five days in Mexico before crossing the border illegally back into the United States. Then and now he has found himself in a kind of limbo.

The 23-year-old was brought to this country illegally by his parents when he was just eight years old. Deported just shy of his high school graduation, he doesn't qualify for the deferred action enacted by President Barack Obama last year.

    I think that many people are being really unfair and rude to the topic of immigration and to the hispanic community. Please keep in mind that this country was made on immigrants.
