He then resided here continuously over the next decade and a half, working as a carpenter and siring two children, both U.S. citizens. He has no prior record. In July 2016 Mr. Perez was picnicking with friends when he saw a gang of teens attacking a young rival with bats and machetes. A friend handed Mr. Perez a pistol, which he fired several times into the air to disperse the assailants. They ran, and he returned the gun. The Government charged Mr. Perez with violating 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(5), barring undocumented immigrants from possessing a firearm in any circumstance. ...

The conflict is long-standing and further delay will not resolve it. ... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
