Johnny's girl is out of the clink

From the Times Ledger:

Jia “Jenny” Hou walked out of a Pennsylvania detention facility a free woman last week after an immigration judge decided not to deport her to China. The treasurer of former City Comptroller John Liu’s 2013 mayoral campaign had been mired in legal problems since she was convicted in federal court of soliciting illegal donations.

The immigration court’s decision, rendered by Judge Kuyomars Golparvar, came at the end of a three-hour hearing in York, Pa. Liu, who was not charged with any wrongdoing in the original case, sat with Hou’s family in the courtroom and spoke with reporters after her release.

Hou was 27 years old in 2013 when she was found in Manhattan federal court guilty of attempted wire fraud, obstructing justice and making false statements to authorities and though she faced up to 45 years in prison, she was sentenced to just 10 months. She filed an appeal midway through her jail time and was released to wait for the results at home.

After losing that appeal, Hou was sent back to prison last March, and when she completed her sentence in December, she was transferred to an immigration detention center to await the court’s decision on whether she would be deported because of her felony conviction.

After the court allowed her to stay in the United States, Hou vowed to use good judgment in her future and thanked the Chinese community in eastern Queens for their support throughout this painful period.

Typical sloppy reporting.

What was her immigration status? Green card? Resident alien? Illegal alien? She came when she was 11. What was/is her parents immigration status?

Why doesn't that matter? It would seem to me it was important.

She is a criminal regardless of her immigration status (legal or not) so she should have been deported!

" ...she was convicted in federal court of soliciting illegal donations."

Another immigrant doing jobs that Americans will not do...

So, let's say someone legally immigrated here 20, 30, 40 years ago - should they all be deported too? 'Legal or not'? If that's how you 'think', you're in the wrong country pal.

They deport people for less.
Money talks anywhere.
If you do that in China the'll cut your balls, throw you in jail and if you're alive by the time you come out they deport you. Why should we be any different, are we more civilized?
They should have tossed her ass in jail and then send her back to ChinaLand.

Alas, I no longer worry about what is deemed 'ILLEGAL' in this 'Fourth World' sphere of anarchy that is more commonly known as the 'UNITED STATES of AMNESIA and ENTERTAINMENT'——I am perpetually flummoxed, worried and angry over what is STILL 'LEGAL!'

But, mabye Emperor Andrew Cuomo could find yet another cushy position for her up in Attica, I mean Albany! After all, he and his former Albany henchmen, Shelly Silver and Dean Skelos are still walking free (whilst purportedly out on appeal), and there needs to be another evidentiary power grab to fill the vacuum (and to continue bilking We, the People out of our hard earned, rapidly disappearing money and meritocracy).

Besides, Albany is the official breeding ground of all 'CRIMES WITHOUT CRIMINALS'in the first place, where the more guilty a stooge of all government corruption, graft and greed be, the greater benefits of freedom and democracy that are dutifully guaranteed for their criminal accommodation for whom everyone else continues to pay a soul-crushing price——COMPLIMENTS of the obscenely overburdened American, New York State taxpayer (which is the reason for why thousands of foisted, NYS residents and pensioners flee to all friendlier state environs faster than radioactive waste).

Why, these crooks even give MENDACITY a bad name! So, where do I sign up and come for the openly practiced crime?——and, STAY (and, stay and stay) for Prince Andrew's government gravy train, cradle-to-grave pay?

Huh. I had no idea this site has become pro-crime?

As for this:
"They deport people for less.
Money talks anywhere.

Uh...

Most of us ARE more civilized.


But hey, apparently not Mike Flynn...

YEP!! If you are an immigrant here (legal or not) you should be deported back to your OWN COUNTRY. People who don't know how to act here should not be wasting tax payer dollars! I had a friend who had a baby's father who was here in the USA for 10 years then he sexually harassed a 12 year old and stayed in prison for 8 years then got deported! You must have a brain the size of a pea!

Johnny, me love you long time, even served a jail sentence for you to show you how much I love you and your sorry, corrupt ass.

Yes, if I were her I would thank the chinese community, too. It only goes to prove that "Money talks and everyone else walks". Darn shame we have to keep all the crap that passes in Queens. She's a felon and has violated her immigrant status. But Johnny Liu knows all the judges and how much should pass each palm so we pay the price for this diversity.

Isn't it a crying, filthy shame that illegal immigrants are treated with rights and privilege that were never designated for them in the FIRST PLACE, while LEGAL and AMERICAN BORN citizens like me are treated like undocumented immigrants. The system has officially collapsed into full blown, OPENLY PRACTICED ANARCHY, where now RIGHT is WRONG, and WRONG is RIGHT!

And, the taxpaying public be damned (again and STILL)! And, pretty soon the reopening of all debtors prisons will be coming to a New York City/New York State town near you--compliments of the REAL criminal psychopaths who occupty City Hall and Albany!

John Liu was sandbagged because he actually stood up to the hidden Billionaires that run this town. Look up the corruption he uncovered as Comptroller and it is easy to see that he was targeted.
