New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has pardoned a bronx man facing expulsion to the Gambia because of ten-year misdemeanor beliefs about selling clothes without permission.
From Cuomo's office:
Governor Andrew Cuomo today issued a pardon to a father of five smaller children who have been a contributing member of the community and crime-free for more than 10 years but are currently subject to deportation of federal government.
Baba Sillah immigrated to the United States at the age of 22, who fled an oppressive father in the Gambia and, like many others, hopes to pursue a better future in America. He married a US citizen and had five children. Because he came into this country as a guest, he was not allowed to work and sell clothes and supplies without a license and was accused of several low-level misdemeanors and offenses. He subsequently received jobs as a gate, a position he has held for 15 years and paid taxes for 15 years.
"While President Trump is obsessed with building walls to keep immigrants out, the New York family knows that its diversity is our strength," Governor Cuomo said. "Compassion and Justice is the Empire State Way, and Mr. Sillah is the father of five who deserve to stay with his family."
Mr. Sillah has been detained since January, following a routine appointment of US immigration and customs (ICE), which he has made for 17 years. He is held at the Hudson Correctional Facility in Kearny, New Jersey and recently applied for re-reception in New York. After his removal was scheduled in late February, his expulsion remained of an emergency search for a federal district court. He will next come to this court on Friday, where he will be able to present this excuse as additional evidence that his expulsion will continue. If the court decides on Mr. Sillah's advantage, with this excuse, will be able to apply for denial of refusal, to prevent his removal once and for all, and to allow him to pursue naturalization through his wife, a US citizen.
