Man detained after NYC pizza delivery granted emergency stay

U.S. military base calls immigration police on pizza delivery man

"This stay will allow him to pursue a meritorious form of relief from removal - adjustment of status for permanent residency - to remain with his family", the Legal Aid Society said in a statement obtained by CNN. "We ask ICE to release him and let him come back to us". Copeland called for an investigation into the incident, and reiterated Villavicencio does not have a criminal record.

His wife, Sandra Chica, told NBC New York on Saturday that she was told Villavicencio could have been deported as quickly as Monday. His voluntary departure then became a final order for removal. "Please don't stop him, don't take him away from us".

In this undated family photo provided by Sandra Chica, Pablo Villavicencio poses with his two daughters, Luciana, left, and Antonia.

Instead, he got married and started a family in NY - where local laws somewhat shield undocumented immigrants from federal authorities, even as President Donald Trump's administration detains thousands of people it accuses of entering the United States illegally. The check on Villavicencio showed there was an active ICE warrant on file, at which point he was detained by military police, said Fort Hamilton spokeswoman Catherine SantoPietro.

The father of two has an open green card application, CBS2's Jessica Moore reported.

"I had one message for her: Anything we can do to help, we will do".

"The circumstances of this case, including the arrest and detention of Mr. Villavicencio and the remarkable speed with which it appears he is being removed, reflects a pattern of conduct which I have previously raised with ICE as unconscionable and seemingly targeted directly at NY residents", Cuomo said in the letter.

But on June 1 he was he was asked by a military policeman for proof that he was a legal resident of the United States.

Villavicencio, who is seeking American citizenship, was first ordered to leave the country voluntarily in 2010. "I'm listening", New York City Councilman Justin Brannan said. After Villavicencio couldn't produce a New York State Driver's License for identification, a guard at the Fort Hamilton in the Brooklyn borough of New York called Immigration and Customs Enforcement on him as he tried to deliver a pizza to the military base.

"Tell me how this is American". In an act of solidarity, workers at two pizzerias in Bay Ridge, the neighborhood where Fort Hamilton is located, said that they would no longer deliver food to the Fort Hamilton base. The Republican, who represents the district around the base, told WNYC: "Liberal activists are attacking ICE agents and military personnel for following the law in detaining an immigrant reportedly here illegally".

A march to protest the pending deportation in Bay Ridge Wednesday night led to seven arrests.
