On June 1, 2001, the Los Angeles Times reported that "an international religious group has filed a federal lawsuit against the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, alleging the group's leading minister was wrongfully deported after seven years in the United States." The Wu-Wei Tien Tao Association's spiritual leader, Kwai Fun Wong, was arrested in June 1999 and deported to Hong Kong without a hearing.
