Judge orders deportation of Taiwanese envoy convicted in labor case

A Taiwanese envoy whose conviction in Kansas City on a federal human trafficking charge sparked diplomatic tensions was ordered deported Friday. Hsien Hsien Liu, who led Taiwan’s mission in Kansas City, pleaded guilty in November to fraud in foreign labor contracting, admitting that she had mistreated and underpaid a Philippine housekeeper in her Johnson County home.
