Re: Reunification Process with the Abducting Parent Begins!

We had a Family Court hearing on Friday July 26 2013.  A new judge was assigned to the case.  The Taking Parent's request to reduce the number of monitors during Supervised Visitation was denied.  We keep 2 monitors during the visits to help ensure there is no re-abduction.  We also reduced the number of supervised visits from 3 weekends a month to 2 weekends.
The Taking Parent also requested the court's order to allow her to give the boys clothing as gifts.  I agreed provided the clothing is mailed directly from an on-line retailer.  Back in Feb 2012, I found a piece of paper with phone numbers for mother's friends and attorney after a supervised visitation (we changed monitors after that).  I don't want to be put in a position where I have to go through all the pockets and seams to make sure there are no hidden messages.  The judge agreed.  Even after the judge said he would allow  the clothing via an on-line retailer, the Taking Parent continued to argue for permission to allow her to give the boys clothing she has already purchased.  The judged denied her request.
The  Taking Parent's 3rd Immigration Court hearing is coming up on August 23, 2013.  I read where a defendant undergoing deportation can ask friends and family to write the immigration judge to allow him/her to stay.  I am asking for help to write the immigration judge Tara Naselow-Naha's to not exercise any discretion and waive the removal order.  If anyone has time, please consider a letter to the immigration judge before the August 23rd hearing.  A template is appended below if you have time.  Thanks very much.

[font=]Re:      [/font]Removal Proceedings for Yuxin Mei WANG (A055170469)
 
[font=]Dear Judge Naselow-Nahas:[/font]
 [font=]Minors Christopher Ko and William Ko were kidnapped to Singapore by Yuxin Mei Wang on August 30, 2009.  [/font]
 [font=]Wang was wanted by the FBI and Interpol on multiple warrants.  [/font]The father of the children Andrew Ko endured an 18-month legal process in Singapore and was successful in bringing his children home to the United States on March 15, 2011. 
 [font=]Wang returned to the United States on May 30, 2011 and was paroled into the United States, arrested, prosecuted and sentenced for Felony kidnapping by the Los Angeles County District Attorney Child Abduction Unit.[/font]
 [font=]On July 12 2012, Wang was served a “Notice to Appear” (Subject ID 343692586; Event No. LOS1207000204) by agents of DHS ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations and charged with “Document Fraud” in relation to her US Permanent Residency visa application.  [/font]Wang was not divorced when she married Ko and concealed this fact when applying for her immigration visa.  Wang had her 2nd immigration hearing on March 13, 2012 and her next immigration hearing is on August 23, 2013.
 [font=]I am writing to ask that your Honor not exercise the Attorney General’s discretion and grant Wang an Immigration and Nationality Act Fraud Waiver.  [/font]Wang does not deserve a waiver or cancellation of removal because:
 
[font=] [/font]1)     She was convicted of felony kidnapping for which she was eligible for a sentence of more than 3 years.  She was sentenced to 180 days incarceration and 5 years felony probation, was fined, and was ordered to pay victim restitution.
 
2)     Wang was informed at her Sentencing Hearing that her conviction for the offense she was “charged with will have the consequences of deportation, exclusion from admission to the United States, or denial of naturalization pursuant to the laws of the United States.”
 
3)     She knowingly committed bigamy in her marriage to Ko.  Both bigamy and Kidnapping are classified as “Crimes of Moral Turpitude” by the U.S. State Department (Foreign Affairs Manual Volume 9 FAM 40.21(a) N2.3-3 Moral Turpitude).
 
4)     There is no “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” on her teenage U.S. citizen children because she does not have any legal or physical custody of them; and she is only granted Supervised Visitation for 14 hours a month.  She does not provide any financial, emotional, or physical care for the children.
 
5)     She does not have residence of long duration in this country.  Wang departed the U.S. on August 30, 2009 and returned on May 30, 2011.  According to Consular Officer Rachel Sunden at the Singapore U.S. Embassy, Wang’s green card had expired because she stayed out of the U.S. for more than 12 months.  Wang was paroled  and not legally admitted into the US when she returned to Los Angeles on May 30, 2011.
 
6)     Wang has no business or property ties to the U.S.  Wang’s family is in her home country of Singapore with a son, her mother, six siblings, and nine nieces/nephews living there.
 
7)     Wang did not file US Income Tax Returns for 2009, 2010 and 2011 when due.
 
8)     Wang remains an abduction threat to her children according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
 
9)     Wang continues an attitude of contempt and remains in violation of conditions of her felony probation by not obeying all orders of the Los Angeles County Family Court as ordered in her felony sentencing.
 
[font=]I implore your Honor not to exercise the Attorney General’s discretion and deny Wang’s request for any waiver or cancellation of removal under the Immigration and Nationality Act at the August 23, 2013 immigration hearing.[/font]
 
[font=]Sincerely,[/font]

Managed to find out that another Immigration Court hearing is scheduled for December 5, 2013.  Please continue to write letters to the Judge and reference Wang's alien ID A055170469.

I have to go about a very convoluted way to find out the status of the case.  The ICE attorney Lucia Fiorentino has blocked the 1-800 immigration court case status line since Jan 2013 out of fear of losing her job.  No statute or law but just that she doesn't "want my head to roll."  A convicted felon is shown more latitude than the victim of the crime.  Just incredible.
CA State Senator Carol Liu representing district 25 found the time to draft a proclamation for the opening of a restaurant called New Moon in San Marino, CA.  When I requested help from her in 2010 to help bring my children back from Singapore, she declined.  These politicians really know their priorities.   But she will get more attention from participating in a restaurant opening than from helping bring kidnapped children home to their parents. 

Please continue to write to the Immigration Judge, Attorney General, and anyone you can think of that might take a case of deporting a convicted child kidnapper seriously.  Thank you.

Re: Removal Proceedings for Yuxin Mei WANG (A055170469)
 
Dear Judge Naselow-Nahas:
Minors Christopher Ko and William Ko were kidnapped to Singapore by Yuxin Mei Wang on August 30, 2009.
Wang was wanted by the FBI and Interpol on multiple warrants.  The father of the children Andrew Ko endured an 18-month legal process in Singapore and was successful in bringing his children home to the United States on March 15, 2011.

Help Deport a Convicted Kidnapper
« Reply #19 on: November 07, 2013, 02:42:38 PM »
Here is the latest.  Attorneys for the taking parent are now contacting supporters who wrote letters to the Judge, Attorney General Holder and Deputy Attorney General Cole.  One of the supporters asked if she can give them hell if they should contact her.  here is one better.  Please send emails to Wilson Wong at wilsonwong@wilsonwonglaw.com and Kusum Joseph at kusumjosephlaw@gmail.com or call 909-557-8424 and let them know your thoughts about deporting a convicted felon who kidnapped her own children.  It is still not too late to send a letter to the Judge before the next hearing on December 5, 2013.  Attached is the Notice to Appear served on the taking parent in July 2012.  I was told by the ICE agent that it would take 12-18 months to deport her so let's hope he is right and the December 5th hearing will be the last.  Thank you for your support.
Back in July 2013, we were back in family court.  The taking parent wanted to reduce the number of monitors from 2 to 1.  Judge denied it.  She was also going to ask for joint custody but it didn't go anywhere.  She wanted to give the children gifts but we have found papers with telephone numbers on the boys twice after even supervised visitation.  I compromised and suggested gifts are ok provided they come directly from an online retailer so the mother cannot put in notes and instructions (attached Court Order).  Guess what?  On Oct19, 2013 a big box arrived addressed to the children directly from the mother.  I refused delivery and sent it back.  In the meantime, Los Angeles County Probation Officer Manuel Rueda continues to state that the mother is complying with all conditions of her felony probation.  How would he know that if he doesn't even have copies of the many orders issued by the Family Court in 2012 and 2013?  We entrust some of the most important jobs to some of the least qualified people in LA County!

A Happy and Healthy 2014 to All.
Yuxin Mei Wang (A055170469) had her Immigration Court hearing on Dec5, 2013.  Another hearing is scheduled for December 2014!  Please continue to write the Immigration Judge Tara Naselow-Nahas and the Attorney General to help deport Wang.
In the meantime, Wang has been sending the boys letters.  All have been marked "Return to Sender" and posted back to her.  She has also tried to pass a gift to the children during Supervised Visitations.  Both are prohibited by the current Court Order. 
Just read about a new movie called "Divorce Corp."  The review in the NY Times seem to describe my experience.  Judges who don't care, "experts" who don't know what they are doing, and family law attorneys who want to drag the whole thing out for more billable hours.
I pray thay more children are returned to their loving parents in 2014!

Help Deport a Convicted Child Abductor
« Reply #21 on: August 26, 2014, 05:32:04 PM »
This is to ask for your help to write the Immigration Judge and the ICE Attorney to help deport Yuxin Mei Wang who kidnapped Christopher and William Ko.

Attached are letters and a Declaration I sent to IJ Tara Naselow-Nahas and ICE Attorney Lucia Fiorentino in Los Angeles. CA.

Please write the Judge and ask her to pronounce a final order of removal at the 5th hearing on Dec2, 2014.  Wang was served her Notice to Appear in July 2012 and has had 4 hearings.  Time to remove a convicted child abductor out of our country.  Thank you.
