Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Another Veteran Facing Deportation

Rate this Entry
Via The Chicago Tribune:

An appeal to halt the deportation of a decorated Army veteran to his native Mexico has been denied, according to a letter delivered to him and his lawyer Tuesday.

An order for removal has been issued for Miguel Perez Jr., a veteran with a green card who served time in a state prison for a felony drug conviction after two tours in Afghanistan. Perez, 39, had requested relief under the United Nations Convention Against Torture, an agreement by the U.S. not to deport people who are not American citizens or nationals to another country where they could be tortured.

His attorney Chris Bergin said he will file for a stay of removal Wednesday. He has 30 days to appeal.

    I'm sympathetic too, but what relief is available for someone with his criminal record? This isn't a problem Trump created. If you want the source, look at IIIRIRA.
