It took me seconds to learn that our son was now being held at the Alhambra City Jail.

As the holiday season hit its peak, so did the daily USA-Mexico crossings.  
On December 24, 2013, my wife and I went to Mexicali, Baja California to visit a close relative who has brain cancer.  All I knew was that she was at certain hospital and that it was near the Calexico East (Commercial) Port of Entry (POE).

Open Letter to President Barack Obama and the U.S. Congress: Release Paul Peter Tjandra from custody!

Open Letter to President Barack Obama and U.S. Congress:
Please release PAUL PETER TJANDRA from custody.  His violation was for B-2 Visa overstay.  He subsequently applied for religious and ethnic (Christian Chinese Indonesian) asylum for persecution by radical and terrorist Muslims in Indonesia.  He arrived at the USA in 2005.  In 2009, an Immigration Judge deported him.  Mr. Tjandra appealed his deportation and in 2012 the U.S. 9TH Circuit denied his petition to stay..  Mr. Tjandra has never been out of immigration status.

Can a Song Stop Deportations of Non-Criminal Illegal Aliens
