(KNX 1070) - A deported Army vet is home again in Azusa after a three-year legal fight.

Fabian Rebolledo crossed back into the U.S. from Mexico Wednesday and is back with his family with a green card reinstated.

The U.S. Army veteran was deported twice once in 2010 and then again in 2012 after he was convicted of cashing a fraudulent paycheck.

He says he feels betrayed by the country he served.UC Irvine’s Immigrant Rights Clinic stepped in two years ago after California law reduced Rebolledo’s conviction to a misdemeanor.

Rebolledo is now working to become a permanent US citizen.
