Decision Tuesday: Pablo Villavicencio and Immigration Authorities
decision tuesday: At the time of his arrest, he was in the middle of seeking legal status, according to Toronto Star. But the U.S. government sought to deport him as soon as possible, causing uproar among activists and public officials alike. Pablo Villavicencio, father of two U.S. citizens, was arrested June 1 while delivering pasta to a Brooklyn military base, where Army security officers questioned his identification and alerted immigration authorities. An Ecuadorean immigrant who was held for deportation after he delivered pizza to a Brooklyn Army installation has been released. U.S. District Judge Paul Crotty's decision Tuesday, however, stays Villavicencio's removal so that he can continue pursuing permanent residency. A federal judge ruled that Pablo Villavicencio can remain in the U.S. while he tries to gain legal status. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
