Eddy has been fighting against deportation for the last year, with support from folks like Yuri Kochiyama, Helen Zia and Rev. Norman Fong, among many, many more.
If you don't understand why all the fuss about this man, who was convicted of kidnapping at the age of 16, served 19 years on a 7-to-life sentence, and has been facing deportation since March 2005, you should learn more about his case - or meet him yourself. Though he was granted parole by the governor - his second time, the first under Gov. Davis who revoked hundreds of parole recommendations - because he is not a citizen (but a greencard holder), he faces deportation to China.
Eddy Zheng's final day of hearing is this Monday, February 13th at 1pm in the San Francisco Immigration Building.
630 Sansome (@ Washington), San Francisco
Monday February 13, 1pm
bring ID, no cameras or camera phones
This is a public hearing, and supporters will be allowed inside the courtroom. This is a continuation of last Monday's hearing, which was unexpectedly closed to the public during the morning portion.
This Monday, the immigration judge will hear from about 10 more supporters; Eddy will be in court, too.
