BORDER NEWS

Marisa Patricia Carlson, an Argentine citizen who was adopted by a US couple as an infant, will not be deported.  In what an immigration judge called a “rather unprecedented” decision, the INS halted deportation proceedings.  Carlson, who was illegally adopted, was convicted of check forgery last year and placed in deportation proceedings.  Under the 1996 immigration law, nonviolent felonies such as this became deportable offenses.  INS officials agreed to halt the deportation on the condition that Carlson undergoes treatment for a crack cocaine addiction.
