Culture on the Cheap
LAST GASP: We Did It!!!
Okay, he isn’t out yet— but I have gotten word from a few ladies in the know that tonight or tomorrow Pablo Airaldi will be free! More details/commentary to follow. Quite frankly right now I am too excited/weepy to collect my thoughts! As I understand it (and this is using laywoman’s terms: I am a Notary Public, NOT a lawyer), Pablo’s plea of “no contest”/”guilty” in Indiana was overturned. No crime = no reason for deportation. This has been brought to the attention of the Immigration court judge presiding over his case, Justice Abrams, and he has signed papers for Pablo’s release!
UPDATE, January 6, 2011: I have word that Pablo is back home at the Chicken Hut. Which of course, is where he should be!
In closing I would like to give BIG props to the men and women who rallied to Pablo’s defense (you know who you are). Your tenacity and dedication is proof positive that people can and do make a difference. I am proud to call each and every one of you neighbors!
