Old Conviction Deportations

Immigrant in New York City being deported due to decades-old conviction

A husband, father and green card holder will be deported from the country for crimes he committed as a teenager. Panama native, Jose Molina, was a toddler when he entered the country and has been living in the United States close to 40 years. He has been married to his wife, Jennifer Molina, for 16 years with whom he has two children. Molina resides with his family in the Bronx, New York where he works for the Department of Parks. Before he married, Molina spent some time in prison for assault. He had prior convictions for 3 degree assault, assault with intent to cause dismemberment and two DUI convictions. Molina was detained by immigration officers five years ago for reasons that are not stated. However he was released and allowed to be back with his family. From then up until the time of his recent detainment he experienced legal difficulties over his case. It was during a scheduled meeting with immigration officers when Molina was arrested and taken into custody. His lawyers and wife tried to get answers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement but was told the “U.S has a new president and Jose Molina would remain detained pending removal proceedings”.

            This is a very troubling situation because of the fact that Jose Molina is in fact a permanent resident by status and a green card holder. There are numerous rights and benefits that are given to green card holders. It is sad to see an individual who was provided with all of these benefits be torn away from everything he has built for himself and his family, especially after all these years. Some of Molina’s prior convictions are to be taken very seriously but it is devastating to see that after almost 20 years later his past has power over his future. The choices and mistakes that he made at 18 years old are about to destroy his life and family. Molina is the primary contributor for his family and his ensuing deportation will take a tremendous toll on his wife and children. This case serves as an excellent example of how our choices now will always affect us in our future one way or another.
