We all saw this coming with Arizona's new law

OP: MEA CULPA - I saw a paragraph in the article that mentioned the Arizona law and my brain read it as happening in Arizona. I apologize for the confusion. My only defense is that the original article (and hell, even the article at NBC Chicago) was not clear as to where the incident took place.

Eduardo Caraballo, a U.S. citizen born in the United States, was detained for over three days on suspicion of being an illegal immigrant.

Despite presenting identifying documents and even his birth certificate, Caraballo was held by federal immigration authorities over the weekend and threatened with deportation, according to an NBC Chicago report. He was only released when his congressman, Luis Gutierrez -- a vocal supporter of immigration reform -- intervened on his behalf.
