Isthmus on WORT: Immigration, deportation and the courts

Under the 1996 Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act, immigrants convicted of most felonies are deportable and "permanently inaadmissible" to the United States. There is no statue of limitations for deportable offenses, and immigration judges have no discretion in these cases.

Isthmus news editor Judith Davidoff reports on how a Madison immigrant's teenage pot possession convictions were vacated in the January 17 issue, and discussed her story with WORT producer Dylan Brogan on the January 16 edition of In Our Backyard.

Listen to the interview.
