Just now I got a phone call from some guy working for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He had good news and bad news: namely that Rollo’s deportation hearing was yesterday and they’ve decided to send him back to Sudan ASAP. Like, within a few days. (And he laughed at my “catapult” joke.) Bad news that I wasn’t able to participate in the process, but good news that Rollo will no longer be a problem for this country. I’m okay with that. And I told the man, more than once, that I REALLY appreciated him giving me a call to inform me of this.
It seems like every time I think this is all over, something else happens. But maybe the story is over at last.
