The order of the Bureau of Immigration ordering the deportation of US Marine Lance Cpl. Joseph Scott Pemberton is a welcome development. It was at the instance of the Laude family that he was made the subject of deportation proceedings. It proves that he is indeed an undesirable alien arising from the killing of Jennifer. This notwithstanding, his deportation should be after he serves his sentence, if found guilty. Any contrary ruling will accord him with impunity.
