A former gang member facing possible deportation was allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor Thursday and apparently will be permitted to stay in this country. Tony Alvarado, 28, an illegal immigrant who was convicted in 1990 of illegal possession of PCP for sale, has been deported twice, returning both times. But Alvarado says his gang affiliations are a thing of the past. He has a letter from Rep. Howard Berman (D-Panorama City) praising his efforts to shield children from gangs and drugs.

In a surprise decision, a federal judge Tuesday ordered the INS to wait two weeks before deporting the Thai toddler used in an apparent smuggling scheme to make sure the boy will be safe when he returns to Thailand. U.S. District Court Judge Dickran Tevrizian issued a temporary restraining order against the Immigration and Naturalization Service, quoting from the famous inscription on the Statue of Liberty, "Give me your . . . huddled masses yearning to breathe free."

He is a tearful little boy brought halfway around the world on heavy sedation and a false passport. He spent a week in the hospital fighting a cold, an ear infection and chickenpox. He clings to his social worker and cries if she leaves the room. The Immigration and Naturalization Service has already sent the man and woman posing as his parents back to Thailand. The agency had originally planned to repatriate Somsak Deema--who is either 2 or 3 years old--on Thursday.

Mayorkas said, moreover, that he has ordered a review of all federal prosecutions involving Los Angeles officers who have been implicated in police crimes or misconduct.

A Cuban diplomat who was expelled from the United States on allegations of spying and deported to Canada stayed inside the Cuban Embassy in Ottawa on Monday as the time limit on his transit visa ran out. Foreign Affairs Minister Lloyd Axworthy said Jose Imperatori would become an illegal alien if he remained in Canada beyond the two-day limit allowed by the visa granted him on Saturday.

Capping a day of high diplomatic drama, federal agents Saturday night detained a Cuban diplomat accused of spying and forcibly expelled him from the country after he refused to leave voluntarily. U.S. officials said Jose Imperatori, vice consul at the Cuban Interests Section in Washington, was put on a government airplane at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in suburban Virginia and was flown to Montreal. From there, he will be returned to Cuba today, officials said.

A 6-year-old boy rescued at sea--only to land at the center of a politically charged custody battle--should return to his father in Cuba, U.S. immigration officials said Wednesday. "This little boy, who has been through so much, belongs with his father," Immigration and Naturalization Service Commissioner Doris Meissner said of Elian Gonzalez--a doe-eyed child plucked from the Atlantic Ocean on Nov. 25 as he drifted alone in an inner tube.
