HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Lawyers for two longtime Connecticut residents who were deported to Italy are expected to ask a federal judge to allow them to return to testify before state legislators.

U.S. District Judge Vanessa Bryant in Hartford is scheduled to hear arguments Monday in the case of Arnold Giammarco and Paula Milardo, who have been denied permission to return to Connecticut.

Giammarco and Milardo immigrated legally to Connecticut in the early 1960s when they were children. They were deported several years ago because of criminal convictions.

A state legislative committee has subpoenaed them to testify at an April 4 hearing on how criminal convictions and deportation affect immigrant families.

Federal immigration officials say Giammarco and Milardo do not need to be in Connecticut to submit testimony.
