Easter, Memes, and American: As part of his annual holiday pardons, the governor of California pardoned Rottanak Kong and Mony Neth, two Cambodian refugees facing deportation who were recently arrested as part of a federal immigration roundup. California Governor Pardons Two Immigrants Caught in Raids in Huge Middle Finger to Trump splinternews.com Cc @realdonaldtrump ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿพ As part of his annual holiday pardons, the governor of California pardoned two immigrants who were arrested in immigration raids earlier this year. Gov. Jerry Brown recently pardoned or reduced sentences for some 150 individuals convicted of crimes. Among those pardoned were Rottanak Kong and Mony Neth, two Cambodian refugees facing deportation who were recently arrested as part of a federal immigration roundup. The โ€œfull and unconditional pardonsโ€ for Kong and Neth comes as the Trump administration justifies increased immigration enforcement by claiming immigrants who have been convicted of crimes, even nonviolent offenses, pose an immediate danger to American citizens and should be targeted for deportation. But Brown said Kong and Neth have already served their time and paid their debts to society, essentially saying the two immigrants donโ€™t need to be doubly punished by being deported. Kong and Nethโ€™s pardons mark the second time Gov. Brown has pardoned immigrants convicted of serious crimes, according to The Sacramento Bee. During his Easter pardons earlier this year, the governor pardoned two veterans who had been deported to Mexico. So far, an immigration judge has allowed one of those veterans the rare right to return the United States after being deported. Source: Splinter
