US immigration to deport three Indonesians

New York (Antara News) - Three Indonesian nationals who had been staying and working in Pennsylvania, the United States, are facing deportation by US immigration for violating US immigration regulations.

The three Indonesians are currently being detained at the Lackawanna County detention center, Pennsylvania, Indonesian Consul General in New York Trie Edi Mulyani told ANTARA on Monday.

"They will be sent home within this week. We have prepared travel documents in lieu of passports for them. The US immigration authorities are arranging their air tickets," Trie Edi Mulyani said.

Trie found out about the fate of the three Indonesians when he was visiting Lackawanna`s detention center, around 200 km from New York, last Saturday (June 16).

The detained Indonesians were identified as Bambang Heri, Lestari Budiman and Hans Woworuntu. They arrived in the US in 2000 and worked in local factories. However, they were arrested last April 2007 as their stay permits had expired. They have accepted the US immigration`s decision to deport them to Indonesia.

In addition to the three workers, there was another Indonesian identified as Suratman in the US prison. Suratman was also detained for a stay permit violation.

However, Suratman, who is now working as a cleaning service staff in the prison, is still consulting his lawyer on whether he would accept deportation or try to extend his stay permit in the US. (*)
