Eric Balderas ’13 was four years old when he crossed the border. He was detained at a Texas airport this week and, according to the Boston Globe, is currently facing deportation to Mexico.
On Monday, he was detained when he tried to board a plane Boston (where he planned on doing research over the summer). Eric said he had lost his Mexican passport and instead tried to board using his Harvard ID. He was able to board a plane the next day but he awaits a trial in front of an immigration judge.
The Globe notes that our fellow Harvardian was arrested a year after Drew Gilpin Faust, Harvard president, urged Congress to support the Dream Act, which would allow immigrant youths to apply for residency (it is a six-year-long conditional path to citizenship after they have completed two years of higher education toward a degree or completed two years of military service). Working off this angle a friend of Eric made a Facebook Support page urging immigration officials to let Eric stay in the only place he can really call home; the page is justly titled Keep Eric Home.

The first in our anthology of Harvard Haiku. It’s the perfect weekend break from the long-winded BS you’ve been making your entire academic life.
Powerful grey locks
And such sharp business attire
Drew Faust is a fox.
One who knows little–
Like that loud guy in section–
Should really shut up.
Waking up, still drunk.
Linkmate is in my PJs…
Blech, did we hook up?
