Lyglenson Lemorin, a legal US resident from Haiti who has been living in Miami may be deported for supporting terrorism even though he was tried and acquitted on those charges. Uh, is that legal? Well, immigration courts are civil, not criminal courts, so technically it’s not double jeopardy. Further, an administrative judge can make a deportation decision without much evidence and without having to be convinced “beyond a reasonable doubt.” The fact that Lemorin was acquitted of the charges that he supported a scheme to blow up the Sears Tower doesn’t mean he isn’t guilty. I mean, what do jurors know?
Oh, and because he may be called as a witness in a related trial, he’s subject to a gag order, as well. The only thing he can say publicly is “I’m innocent.”
