LOL!! COLD!!


A teenager in Japan whose parents are being deported to the Philippines has decided to stay in Tokyo with her aunt.


After the family lost a three-year battle to stay in Japan, 13-year-old Noriko Calderon had to make a choice between her country or her parents.
She said an emotional goodbye to them at Tokyo's main airport.
Filipinos Arlan and Sarah Calderon used fake passports to enter Japan in the early 1990s, and their daughter was born and raised in the country.
Immigration officials arrested Mrs Calderon in 2006, and since then the family has been fighting to stay together.

Emotional decision


The Calderons fought a three-year legal battle to remain in Japan, saying that Arlan had a stable job there and their daughter only spoke Japanese.


But the family lost their case in the High Court in February, and Noriko was then faced with a difficult choice.


"Japan is my homeland," Noriko told CNN when asked why she decided to stay behind when her parents were deported.


Her parents say her life will be better in Japan than the poor farming community where they will be living in the Philippines.


But Arlan Calderon told CNN: "We won't be there when she needs us the most... She has to protect herself on her own. I'm sorry about that."


Activists claim that Japan's rigid immigration laws violate human rights.
Under Japanese law, the Calderons will not be allowed back into the country for five years.

maybe Japan offers her more, maybe she feels they don't love her enough.

japan has tuff immigration laws for sure
japan was closed off for the longest time

its easy to become a citizen if you are some sort of asset to japan
like some brazilians became japanese citizens to play on the japan national team (football/soccer)

daaag after alll that time...it sucked that the family got caught
with fake passports...theres alot of philippinos in japan working on visas

i dont blame the girl for choosing japan
im pretty sure she knows how to speak tagalog or bisayan

I think Brasil and Japan have long history of some sort of connection for some reason, i forgot what it was.

well considering her age she should stay with her parents. but the fact that she can get a better quality of life, and education in Japan does mean it makes sense for her to stay there.
