LI pizza delivery man granted stay of deportation

Natalia Aristizabal of Make the Road New York called Villavicencio "a man who wants nothing more than to stay with his wife and daughters".

Manhattan judge Alison Nathan on Saturday placed his deportation order on hold until another court hearing scheduled for July 20, and he remains in custody.

The 35-year-old was detained on June 1 while delivering food to the U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn.

The Legal Aid Society said the emergency stay was based on a habeas corpus petition filed Saturday morning, and that the stay will allow him to pursue relief from removal.

Villavicencio's legal counsel filed an emergency stay in motion.

"Although we are disappointed that Pablo will remained detained, today's stay is a victory for him and his family, and also for due process and the fair administration of justice", Gregory Copeland, Supervising Attorney of the Immigration Law Unit at The Legal Aid Society, said in a statement.

Villavicencio's potential deportation triggered a national response and fear in immigrant communities.

"Please ICE do the right thing with my husband", said Chica.

Lawyers from the Legal Aid Society of NY filed a petition with the NY field office of ICE on Friday to have him released on humanitarian reasons as he is the primary provider for his wife and two children, all of whom are USA citizens.

Villavicencio showed a New York City identification card, also known as IDNYC, as he had done during previous deliveries. The spokesperson claims he then signed "a waiver permitting a background check", which triggered the detention and deportation proceedings.

An Army spokeswoman later told the Times that anyone trying to enter the base without a military ID gets a check, but Villavicencio said the sergeant came to the checkpoint and tried to stop his interrogation.

"There is absolutely no legitimate reason to proceed with an expedited removal and to do so would be inhumane", Cuomo said in a letter addressed to Thomas Decker, field office director of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Customs Enforcement. Villavicencio's detention and a recent raid on an upstate dairy farm show "reckless contempt for the constitution", he said.

Immigrant advocate groups launched a public-relations campaign to urge release of the deliveryman within days of his arrest.

New York City Council Member Carlos Menchaca, Chair of the council's Immigration Committee, speaks at a news conference about Ecuadorean restaurant worker Pablo Villavicencio, outside the offices of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, in New York, Friday, June 8, 2018.

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 USA residency and hopefully be reunited with his family, legal aid said.
