Qing Hong Wu Pardoned!

Download PDF

Qing Hong Wu, the individual spotlighted in my previous blog entry has been pardoned by Governor David Paterson of New York. It is hoped by Mr. Wu’s family and friends that the pardon will stop deportation proceedings against Mr. Wu, result in his release from immigration detention, and lead to his successful application for US citizenship. The fact that it took a governor’s pardon to prevent his inevitable deportation, despite Mr. Wu’s long ties and significant contributions to the US, is an important statement about the rigidity and arbitrariness of current immigration law.

  1. Splendid news !!

    Congratulations, Mr Wu !!

    i pray this ends the threat of deportation !!

    Reynolds' concluding sentence, however, holds valid over the lives & fate of countless immigrants.

    This is where our continuing struggle confronts the racism of system AND society.

    Thank you, Matt for sharing your story.

    I myself had to leave the US last year. My immgration attorney misinterpreted a deadline and, hence, submitted my green card application one day late; the application was subsequently denied.
