Mom: Texas teen deported to Colombia back in USMom says Texas teen deported to Colombia after using fake name during arrest is back in US
EL PASO, Texas (AP) ' The mother of a 15-year-old Texas girl who was deported to Colombia says her daughter is back in the United States and will be in Dallas this evening.
Johnisa Turner told the Associated Press on Friday that her daughter Jakadrien Lorece (Ja-KAY-dree-un Lo-REES) Turner was on a flight from Atlanta. She had said earlier that she planned to meet the teen when she arrived in the city.
The teen has become the center of an international mystery. Many facts of the case are still unclear, but U.S. and Colombia officials have pointed fingers over who is responsible for allowing a minor be deported to a country where she is not a citizen.
Turner says she'll feel even better when she's able to wrap her daughter in her arms.
