MURPHY STATEMENT ON DEPORTATION CASE OF FARMINGTON FAMILY

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy released a statement on Friday on the deportation case of Farmington, Connecticut residents, Mr. Zhe Long “Tony” Huang and Mrs. Xiang Jin “Kris” Li. Tony and Kris, who left China to come to the United States nearly two decades ago, have been issued an order to leave the United States by February 16th. Tony and Kris are married, have no criminal records, and have two American-born children, ages 15 and 5. The couple owns a nail salon in Simsbury.

“Kris and Tony own a small business, pay their taxes, and have two children in the Farmington school system. The Trump administration’s backwards immigration policies that target families instead of dangerous criminals make us less safe. I’ve been in touch with ICE, and I will keep fighting to make sure Kris and Tony can stay at home in Connecticut with their kids.”
