Judge: ICE agents canít use immigration interview as Ďtrapí

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) ó U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents impermissibly arrested a Maryland resident after he showed up for an interview with immigration officials, a federal judge said in a ruling that could benefit others fighting deportation orders.

U.S. District Judge George Hazelís decision Thursday extends a previous order that blocked authorities from deporting Wanrong Lin to his native China. Linís wife and three children are U.S. citizens.

ICE agents put Lin on a commercial flight from New Jersey to Shanghai last November, but Hazel ordered Lin to be returned to the U.S. before the flight arrived in China. The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland sued on Linís behalf only minutes before the plane took off.

ICE agents had detained Lin last August after his interview for his application for a ďstateside waiver,Ē which allows noncitizens facing deportation to remain in the U.S. while seeking legal status.

Hazel said the government canít use that process ďas a trap for unsuspecting applicants.Ē The judge said agents effectively used the interview to lure Lin to his arrest, preventing him from completing the provisional waiver process.

1. I Always Thought "ENTRAPMENT" Was ILLEGAL

The stooges go so low they BREAK the law. It is about time someone flagged a government agency which is breaking the law. The idiot who approved this "plan" should be fired then sent to prison for promoting corrupt criminal behavior. DAMN REPUBLICAN YELLOW TURDS screwing up peoples constitutional RIGHTS
