A deported veteran has returned home. Fabian Rebolledo, an Army veteran, was deported to Mexico in 2010 and won a lengthy legal fight to return to the United States and have his lawful permanent resident status restored.
Rebolledo was recruited into the military as a young man. He served at Ft. Bragg and in 1999 was deployed to Kosovo, where he was a peacekeeper who retrieved bodies of villagers killed by Serbian forces. Upon his return to California, his Kosovo experience began haunting him. He sought help for post-traumatic stress disorder and struggled with alcohol, leading to a series of DUI charges. “That experience was harrowing for him,” said Lai, a co-director of the UC Irvine Immigrant Rights Clinic, which was able to reopen his case. “But that’s all behind him now.”
The veteran still worked diligently to care for his family and obtained several jobs. But in 2007, a check he received from one employer turned out to be fraudulent — that would be the offense that led to his deportation.
In Tijuana, Rebolledo slept on the streets and in shelters before finding more permanent housing with another deported veteran. He found support among a group of veterans who had also been deported, and he began doing advocacy work. He even helped create a mural at Tijuana’s Friendship Park to educate people about deported veterans.
