A Korean Adoptee - Immigration Story

Simone Huits
South Korea, once a leading source of children put up for adoption abroad, now offers the most visible example of a major flaw in the system.
Before 2000, the U.S. did not automatically grant citizenship to foreign adoptees, and some who have been convicted of crimes have been deported to birth countries they left decades ago.
The South Korean pictured above, who was adopted at age 8 by an American family, was sent to Seoul in 2012 with no language skills or contacts. He killed himself last month.
