(Portland, OR) -- An Iraq War veteran who grew up in the Portland area could be deported. Chong Kim was born in South Korea and his family legally immigrated to the United States over 35 years ago. Kim has a criminal record that complicates his legal status. In the last five years, Kim was arrested on several charges and in 2016 was convicted of attempted arson and possession of a destructive device. Kim's family says they can't afford to hire their own immigration lawyer.
