    Mexico - Authorities seize wrong Mexican girl for forced return to US

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — A 14-year-old Mexican girl who was taken by authorities and sent screaming to live in the United States was returned home Wednesday after DNA tests showed she is not the daughter of the Houston woman who claimed her.
    The case of Alondra Luna Nunez drew international attention after a video of the distraught girl being forced into a police vehicle last week circulated in media and on social networks.

    The Foreign Ministry said Mexican officials were carrying out a court order to send Alondra to Dorotea Garcia, a Houston woman who claimed the girl was her daughter who had been illegally taken to Mexico by her father years ago. Alondra's family insisted authorities were mistaken but their pleas were ignored.

    "They stole my daughter," Susana Nunez told Milenio Television on Wednesday. "I didn't know this woman existed."

    My kids are a window to my past, a mirror of today, a door to tomorrow, and a keeper of this proud old dad's heart forever.

    This is a bizarre case. Why couldn't the Mexican authorities have done a DNA test before traumatizing the girl and her family like this?
