Man held in immigration detention following pizza delivery

One man remains detained following an incident at a military base. He worked as a pizza delivery man in New York and often delivered to the base. The last time he visited, he said that the check-in procedure had changed, which led to him being arrested and held in immigration detention

The individual stated that he had delivered pizza to the military base many times before. Most recently, he was stopped at the gate and asked for a valid Department of Defense ID. Previously, his city ID card had been sufficient for him to enter and deliver food. 

Since his ID was not up to the current requested standard, the security staff at the base ran a background check on the man. First, they called police to ensure that he did not have any warrants out for his arrest. When police revealed that he did not, the security then called Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. It was found that the man had an outstanding deportation order from 2010. What may have prompted that order was not revealed. 

The man's wife reported that he had applied for a green card in February. Unfortunately, he now sits in immigration detention where his future is uncertain and he may face deportation. A person in New York facing deportation may have some options for remaining in the United States. He or she may also wish to defend him or herself against immigration charges. Many choose to do so with the help of an experienced immigration attorney.
