Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Judge won't release Iraq War veteran fighting deportation

Rate this Entry
Via ABC News:

An immigration judge in Washington state declined to release an Iraq War veteran from custody Wednesday while he fights the government's efforts to deport him.

Chong Kim, a South Korean immigrant and green card holder from Portland, Oregon, struggled with drug addiction, homelessness and post-traumatic stress following his time in Iraq in 2009 and 2010, leading to convictions for burglary and other charges.


Kim's lawyer and friends have said he has done well since completing a substance abuse treatment program run by the Department of Veterans Affairs early this year.


But immigration agents arrested him in April and brought him to a detention center in Tacoma, Washington. They plan to deport him because of his convictions.
