Korean Adoptee Adam Crapser To Be Deported

lara trace hentz

adam-crapserThe Adoptee Rights Campaign reported October 25 that 40-year-old Adam Crapser, adopted from Korea when he was three years old, will be deported.

In a nutshell, this is why:

  • When Adam was adopted, the U.S. government did not provide automatic citizenship to internationally adopted children. Adam’s adoptive parents never got him U.S. citizenship.
  •  A federal immigration law requires that anyone who commits a felony and is not a U.S. citizen is subject to deportation–including adoptees. Adam committed felonies. He served his time for them.

None of us condones the commission of crimes, but it’s an outrage that the United States is deporting international adoptees, brought to the U.S. legally as children by U.S. citizens for the purpose of becoming the sons and daughters of American parents.  Two governments–in this case, South Korea and the United States–sanctioned all the paperwork.

    • You are very welcome – the whole Korean adoption business fascinates me (if fascinates is the right word?) I know Adam is not a war baby – but the way American Servicemen and Women could waltz into Boystown (and other places like it) during the K War and go children shopping has always appalled me.
