Imprisoned and deported for being raped?

feministe: Imprisoned and deported for rape

A 16-year-old girl was deported from Saudi Arabia to Pakistan after serving 6 months in prison after she was raped by a Saudi man. She was deported even though she was born in Saudi Arabia.

The scary part is that some of the immigration reforms being considerd by congress could lead to a similar situation in the US if the Republican congress gets it's way and successfully denies some US-born children their citizenship rights.
