Governor's Office touts $1.6M in savings so far in deportation policyWritten by Rebecca Elmore
Guam - A Palauan man is the 21st foreign criminal slated to be removed or deported by a new Calvo administration policy.
A release from Adelup says Rodolfo Moon Sangalang was sentenced to 10 years in prison for second-degree criminal sexual conduct as a first-degree felony and was scheduled to be released in 2021. Governor Eddie Calvo has however, commuted the remainder of his sentence and Sangalang will be transferred to the custody of U.S. Immigrations for formal proceedings.
The governor's office adds that with the 21 commutations that allowed for the voluntary removal or the deportation of criminals, the total savings for the local government is approximately $1.6 million.
