Adult adoptee Adam Crapser is expected to be deported to South Korea after immigration judge John C. O'Dell ruled this week against relief which would have allowed Crapser to remain in the United States, according to the Adoptee Rights Campaign.
Crapser — who is the father of three young U.S. citizens — was adopted from Korea at age three, but because his adoptive parents never applied for naturalization, is one of an estimated 35,000 intercountry adoptees who do not have U.S. citizenship and who can be deported to their country of birth for various minor crimes, according to advocates.
Seven years after Crapser and his older sister were adopted, their parents abandoned them, according to the Associated Press. The foster care system separated Crapser, 10 at the time, from his sister. The boy was housed at several foster and group homes.
