Last month, Assistant District Attorney Joel Goldstein made a promise to the Delaware County jury that convicted Victor Maturo of first-degree murder and sentenced him to life in prison. The South Philadelphia man had been accused of plotting with Thomas S. Vile to murder Vile's former girlfriend. "One day Vile will be caught, and I will go before a jury like this and ask that he be found guilty of first-degree murder and sentenced to death," Goldstein said. Last week, Goldstein came closer to fulfilling his promise when an administrative judge in Toronto ordered that Vile be deported from Canada.

Emmanuel Figueroa, who became the target of vigilante justice after he raped an 11-year-old girl, was sentenced yesterday to eight to 20 years in state prison and five years of probation. Figueroa, 25, will be deported to his native Dominican Republic once his sentence is completed, said Assistant District Attorney Mark Cipolletti. Figueroa, in blue prison clothing, looked straight ahead during his sentencing hearing and barely acknowledged his attorney or the Spanish interpreter who continuously whispered in his ear. In July 2008 he raped the learning-disabled girl after tricking her to come next door to his girlfriend's house on Godfrey Avenue in Lawndale.

Under federal law, immigrants convicted of domestic violence and other offenses are subject to deportation. "As the facts stand now, the government is saying that Mr. Astacio is deportable in virtue of the domestic violence offense, and we will pursue that," INS district director Joe Greene told KCNC-TV in Denver.

Napier came to Camden at age 5 but never became a U.S. citizen. He was deported July 30 because of a 1998 drug conviction that labeled him a high-priority candidate.

A 28-year-old Delaware County woman who faced deportation to her native Guatemala has been given a one-year reprieve by federal authorities. Zulma Villatoro was required to voluntarily return to Guatemala by July 2 or be arrested and expelled. She came to the United States with her mother illegally when she was 14. In 2006, she requested asylum, arguing that Guatemala's gang violence put her in jeopardy as a woman. An immigration judge rejected her argument. Harold A. Ort, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in an e-mail Friday: "ICE granted Zulma Villatoro a one-year stay of removal on June 15, 2011.
