Summary Antonio Cerami came to the United States with his family when he was 12 years old.
He entered the country as a lawful permanent resident. InAntonio met Cristina, who is a US citizen, and they were married in Antonio became stepfather to her four children, and the couple had a son of their own. A unionized dockworker in Chicago, Antonio also worked part-time in the evenings and weekends to provide financial support to his family.
The couple purchased a home in the Chicago suburbs and sent their children to local public schools. Cristina told a Human Rights Watch researcher, "I stayed home until our son was about three years old.
Antonio worked two jobs to take care of us. Then, I also got a job in an office and everything was good ….
We were fine, we were just a normal-not a rich-family, but very comfortable, right? I went to work, he went to work, we hardly ever saw each other because we worked for 10 hours. But we had a plain old normal life. We moved to a [new suburb] after a few years because … there were better schools and we wanted a home where [each of our] kids could have his own room.
Upon their return to O'Hare airport, Antonio was taken into custody in connection with a conviction he had received 19 years earlier, for attempting with an accomplice to rob a pizza parlor.
Antonio had been sentenced to six years in prison, and released after three years for good behavior.
He had complied with all conditions of his parole by reporting once a month to a parole officer. Cristina explained what happened when she was called to testify at the immigration court: When I begged the judge not to take Tony away, the judge said, "You have a job, you can work.
What happened to that? Does that not mean anything? No child left behind? My husband paid taxes. He was here for 30 years [before his deportation] …. My daughter, you should have seen the way she was crying … when I saw her face in court, that was a nightmare. He was her dad.
He raised her since she was five years old …. My whole family was there. It was a very traumatic experience for my whole family, but mostly for my kids. She explained, "He's a good boy, but he started using drugs. Cristina lost the house in the suburbs. Her oldest daughter moved in with her boyfriend's family and, Cristina explained, My daughter had problems.
I cried every day. Right now we don't really have a home. We're living with friends and family. John lives with a friend, Jessica lives with another friend, Danny's with his uncle and Angela lives with another friend.Nullification, in United States constitutional history, is a legal theory that a state has the right to nullify, or invalidate, any federal law which that state has deemed unconstitutional with respect to the United States Constitution (as opposed to the state's own constitution).The theory of nullification has never been legally upheld by federal courts.
