Tony Ng, who was granted parole last October after serving 28 years for his conviction in the 1983 Wah Mee Massacre in which 13 people were murdered, is still in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, while the agency seeks to deport him to Hong Kong. Ng was transferred to the ICE detention center in early December. By law, the agency must deport him within six months of his release from prison. If he’s not deported within that time, ICE has to set him free.
The deportation is based on a removal order issued by an immigration judge in 1997, according to Virginia Kice, Western Regional Communications Director for ICE.
According to Kice, ICE is working to obtain the travel documents needed to carry out the deportation. (end)
