He came to the U.S. legally. Now ‘one mistake’ could have him deported

Philadelphia – In 1992, Hung Le got in trouble with the law.

The son of a U.S. service member and a Vietnamese mother, Le had recently arrived in Philadelphia, following a short stint in Virginia, thanks to the Amerasian Homecoming Act, which helped children of U.S. soldiers get immigration status in this country.

Le said his employer at the time roped him into helping commit a robbery, for which he was arrested. At the age of 22 and unfamiliar with the U.S. legal system, he pleaded guilty to charges including theft, simple assault, and conspiracy, and he served eight years probation.
