ATTORNEY GENERAL TONG STATEMENT ON DEFERRED ACTION FOR SUJITNO SAJUTI
(Hartford, CT) – Attorney General William Tong issued the following statement regarding Sujitno Sajuti, who will leave sanctuary today after being granted deferred action and relief from deportation.
"I am overjoyed for Sujitno Sajuti, who can finally return home today after 19 long months in sanctuary. There is something horribly broken with our immigration system that this 70-year-old man who has lived peacefully here for three decades was ever deemed a priority for deportation. This is certainly not a wise use of federal resources. So today, we celebrate this victory for Sujitno and his wife, but tomorrow we get back to work on behalf of so many other families still separated by the Trump Administration's cruel and irrational deportation regime," said Attorney General William Tong.
