Miguel Tejada in Immigration Trouble? Say it Ain't So, Joe -- I Mean Miguel
The Houston Chronicle reports that Miguel Tejada's immigration status could be in jeopardy peril in light of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's decision to ask the Department of Justice to investigate whether the new Astros shortstop lied to federal investigators in 2005. Tejada, a native of the Dominican Republic, is a lawful permanent resident. There are some instances in which he could be denied entry back into the country by admitting he committed a crime.
