NPR's Nina Totenberg reports that a Haitian man, jailed pending a deportation hearing, has to remain there. Ralph Richardson, who has been a legal resident of the US for 29 years, faces deportation because of the 1996 law that requires the removal of non-citizens who have committed certain serious crimes. Richardson was convicted on cocaine related charges in 1990, served his sentence and was released. He was picked up by immigration officials in 1997 when he returned from a short visit to Haiti and has been incarcerated ever since. Richardson appealed to the Supreme Court, asking to be freed until his deportation hearing, but the justices said today they would not hear the appeal.
