It's the Deaf  worst nightmares, being misunderstood, being a victim of racial profiling, rounded up and handcuffed, send to a detention camp, awaiting overnight deportation south of the border. It's happening to some of us deaf oralists in Arizona, when struggling with our speech in public, often mistaken as a foreign accent, causing border patrols to suspect that they are illegal aliens. They are American citizens, it's their problem if they not carrying any form of identification, such as a driver's license. Border patrols handcuffed them the minute they put their hands behind their head, ignoring their gestures that they are deaf, "tell it to the immigration judge!"
