Nine Days & a Wake Up
My attorney confirmed that the parole board's decision must be final by March 10, which is 120 days from my November 10th hearing. After that date, the governor cannot force the Board to review it, so his deadline is the same date.
That means on March 10th, I should get news from the prison whether my parole was approved or not. If I'm approved, I shall be released from state custody within a day or two. However, I will not be going home. Instead, Immigration Customs and Enforcement agents will pick me up and detain me in its prison. Because I'm not a citizen, it's likely that I will get deported.
I do feel that I'm closer to home, wherever it may be. I just want to get out of prison. I'm excited.
