Ecuadorean Dad Has Deportation Suspended After His Arrest During Pizza Delivery

Ecuadorean Dad Has Deportation Suspended After His Arrest During Pizza Delivery

An Ecuadorean restaurant worker making a delivery to an Army garrison in Brooklyn wound up being detained June 1 after a routine background check at the gate revealed there was a warrant for his arrest for immigration law violations, officials said.

Though he will remain in detention at the Hudson County Correctional Facility in Kearny, New Jersey - in the custody of ICE - the stay will allow Villavicencio to work on obtaining permanent US residency and hopefully be reunited with his family, legal aid said.

The Legal Aid Society says Villavicencio will be allowed to continue his legal fight. "They're going to separate my daughters from him".

According to Nathan's faculty page on New York University Law School's website, she worked as an Associate National Counsel for John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign and then served a "voter protection coordinator" and adviser for the Obama campaign when he ran for office in 2008.

"ICE may feel confident in its legal position, but our client's confidence in the judiciary, as well as the will of the American people, is stronger", said Jennifer Williams, an attorney with the Legal Aid Society, which is representing Villavicencio.

Elected officials joined Villavicencio's wife and two young daughters for the press conference outside Fort Hamilton on Wednesday, slamming the delivery man's detention. "I did not commit a crime", he said in Spanish.

Andrew Cuomo is offering free legal aid to the deliveryman who was detained while delivering pizza at a Brooklyn army base this week.

"I don't know what he meant when he said he'd find a lawyer", one Make The Road leader told Gothamist on Friday. He said that a state-provided attorney had talked with Villavicencio, who is being held at a New Jersey facility.

New York City leaders said Villavicencio's detainment doesn't make sense.

When one guard said the card wasn't valid and that Villavicencio needed a driver's license, he replied that he didn't have one. She has set up a GoFundMe page for support for the couple's daughters.

In a letter to the ICE office in New York, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Villavicencio's "expedited removal serves no legitimate public safety objective and the circumstances leading to his arrest and detention raise serious legal and policy concerns".

"Is our city, state and nation any safer today because they took a pizza delivery guy off the streets?" asked Brannan. "He should be immediately released from ICE custody and an investigation should be launched into the circumstances of his arrest".
