Deportation Halted for Undocumented Father of 2 Arrested While Delivering Pizzas to Army Base
Pablo Villavicencio was granted an emergency stay until July 20.
An undocumented father of two who was arrested while delivering pizza to a New York City Army base has been granted an emergency stay of deportation.
Pablo Villavicencio was detained by ICE officials on June 1 while on a delivery to the Fort Hamilton garrison in Brooklyn after a background check revealed he had a warrant for his arrest on immigration law violations.
CBS New York reports that Villavicencio has an open green card application. Prior to Federal Judge Alison Nathan's decision, Villavicencio's wife appeared before media and pleaded for authorities to set her husband free.
"Please ICE, do the right thing with my husband," said his wife, Sandra Chica.
The Legal Aid Society was able to obtain the temporary stay for Villavicencio after a hearing in Manhattan court Saturday.
The stay is valid until July 20.
