Discretion?! They took our jobs!

In the US, for the past thirty years, new laws have been stripping judges of any discretion whatsoever in ensuring sentencing
and other consequences
of criminal activity are fair. Enter Qing Wong Hu, a Chinese immigrant who arrived in the US when he was 5, and now faces deportation
for a string of muggings he committed in New York City in 1996, when he was still a juvenile. This, despite his successfully turning his life around and becoming a hard working, productive member of society.
