Saw this yesterday morning: Judge Keeps His Word to Immigrant Who Kept His. This guy Qing Hong Wu confessed to a string of muggings when he was fifteen. The judge told him to clean up his act. Wu did, serving three years in the pen and eventually rising to become the vice president of a national company. But when he applied for U.S. citizenship at the age of 27, and in doing so, ironically, he found out that he was deportable based on the crime he committed more than a decade earlier.
Now the judge who presided over his case is trying to appeal to Gov. Patterson to exonerate him. Hopefully he will. If he doesn’t, hopefully Obama will. There’s no reason to deport a guy who has made amends.
