The 67-year-old Rosario Gambino arrived at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport on a flight from Miami. Wearing a gray jumpsuit and looking frail he sat in a wheelchair as he was escorted out by police officers.
Gambino, an Italian-born New Jersey resident, was considered a top mobster in the New York-based crime family led by his late cousin Carlo Gambino.
In 1984 he was convicted in a multi-million-dollar conspiracy to sell heroin in southern New Jersey and sentenced to 45 years in jail.
Gambino was linked to the "Pizza Connection" probe, which broke a $1.6 billion heroin and cocaine smuggling operation that used pizzerias as fronts from 1975 to 1984.
He was released in 2007 and transferred to an immigrant detention center in San Pedro, Calif., to await expulsion, Italian police said in a statement. It was not immediately clear why the sentence had been reduced.

In Washington, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, a part of the nation's Department of Homeland Security, confirmed that Gambino had been turned over to authorities in Rome, but an official said the agency had no information on any reasoning behind Gambino's apparent early release from the center in California.

I'm sure this is only the beginning of the massive numbers of deportations that will originate from California.

Maybe after Alcatraz unloads all of its' illegal alien occupants, we can house them there and leave them to their own devices. Hopefully, they'll do us a favor and dispose of one another.

Can't say i've run into any issues with Italians being discriminated against. we don't have much use for the convicted felons but I think that goes with any we have an option to send away. Remember we just shipped off the former Nazi guard also. guess that was an ally with German but I doubt there is any connection. I did have a few neighbors that were being targeted in Kansasa City as being associated with the mafia but they ran with the Sevillas, and Commissanos. so what woould you expect?

If we have a chance to ship murdering thugs away I say do it. I could care less if they are Italian, Russian, or any other nationality.
