The Justice Ministry has decided not to allow a Filipino family, including a 13-year-old girl born and raised in Japan, to continue to stay together in the country, Justice Minister Eisuke Mori said Friday.

The decision was conveyed to Arlan Calderon, 36, and his wife, Sarah, 38, both with deportation orders against them, when they arrived at the Tokyo Regional Immigration Bureau to seek special permission for residence in Japan with their daughter, Noriko, who attends a junior high school in Warabi, Saitama Prefecture.
