Wanted to clear up something on the issue of deporting illegal immigrants. There are two avenues to remove an illegal immigrant. The first method is through the courts, however ICE has the authority to remove an immigrant through administrative removal proceedings. Those proceedings make it possible to remove someone rather quickly and given the fact that Yousef previously overstayed a visa that made him a priority for removal. Hope that helps.
I really enjoyed it. It was very well-paced throughout.It WAS predictable that the brother would be deported. The second they promised everything would be fine, we knew it wouldn't. The second Carisi left with him, it was clear something would happen. However, it did not feel expected the way it happened. And I did enjoy the trip to Jersey where Barba got to be sassy.On Barba, his half pushing Liv to lie (or maybe omit the truth) was sort of uncharacteristic. I knew Liv wouldn't lie. Her principles are very solid. I was expecting the case to go south at the point. Dodds was interesting. I love Peter Gallagher (is he back for next season). He was great throughout, and I liked his impromptu visit to Liv's (though she ought to check the peephole on her door!!!). He and Barba seemed to be harden by the difficulty of catching and convicting criminals in a way Liv isn't. Obviously she has seen so much, but she still seems to feel they can win by doing the right thing.Fin was barely around in the episode, but Rollins got a lot to do. I loved her getting tough with the suspect's wife, who was clearly lying. She was also great in the interrogation later. Rollins is a great character when not dragged down by personal drama (like her sister).Overall, I enjoyed the two-hour all-in-one format. It was like an SVU movie.Thanks for all your work on this site.Bring on next season!!! 59ce067264
