Cardona arrived in the U.S. in 1986 when he was 17 to avoid political danger in Colombia, where his two brothers were killed by anti-government rebels, his wife told the Daily News.

Cardona helped to remove hazardous materials from Ground Zero and has health issues stemming from the work, including lung, gastrointestinal and psychological issues, the Daily News reported.

"He's very much an American," Rajesh Barua, Cardona's attorney, told the Daily News. "He's scared of going back to Colombia. He doesn't know how he'll maintain a living and what kind of treatment he'll have for respiratory problems, which are very real."
