Total non-U.S. citizens removed or deported under Calvo’s program now at 65
October 18, 2018
Hagåtña — Two more men convicted of harming a resident of this island now face deportation.
The victims of Xavier Jose and Palis Olter were contacted and gave their approval of the commutation, which triggers the deportation process. U.S. immigrations identified Jose and Olter as having committed deportable crimes.
• Xavier Jose: Convicted of two counts third-degree criminal sexual conduct as a second-degree felony, sentenced to eight years with credit for time served. He has served three years.
• Palis Olter: Convicted of second-degree criminal sexual conduct as a first-degree felony, sentenced to ten years. He has served almost three years.
Once deported these men will not be allowed back on Guam and thus will not have an opportunity to hurt another Guamanian.  
Migrants are welcomed to Guam. Most migrants follow the laws, work hard to gain their education, build homes and contribute to making this island a better place for all of us. However, there are people who disregard local or federal laws and are imprisoned. Migrants who are found guilty of breaking a law are subject to deportation.
“When we started this program two years ago, we faced a lot of criticism. The bottom line is there are laws created to protect people and their homes and businesses, and breaking those laws bring consequences that include deportation for those who are not U.S. citizens,” Governor Calvo stated.
With the Governor’s commutation, the two men will be transferred to the custody of the federal government until the time of their deportation. With today’s commutations the total number of criminals whose sentences the Governor has commuted for either removal or deportation is now 65.
