Judge temporarily blocks deportation of Brooklyn pizza worker

Pablo Villavicencio and his two daughters

Pablo Villavicencio's imminent deportation was halted on Saturday, after a federal judge in Manhattan granted the Legal Aid Society's emergency habeas corpus petition.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, in a letter issued Saturday afternoon in support of Villavicencio's stay of removal, asked the Department of Homeland Security to release Villavicencio "from the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement ('ICE')".

Officials said deliveryman Pablo Villavicencio was detained June 1 after a routine background check at the garrison's gate revealed there was a warrant for his arrest for immigration law violations. This time, however, they rejected it.

Villavicencio could therefore get a green card, which he has already applied for, but the legal process may be long and arduous.

"But this time, the guard - whom he identified as African American - asked him for a valid identification document, and since he didn't have one, the soldier called immigration to arrest him", Chica told El Diario.

Though he has no criminal record, Villavicencio did come to the USA illegally from Ecuador in 2008. He got married to Sandra Chica, a USA citizen, eight years ago and had filed an application for citizenship.

"Please ICE, do the right thing with my husband", his wife Sandra Chica said earlier this week.

UPDATE: Reached for comment, Richard Azzopardi, a spokesperson for Governor Cuomo's office, tells Gothamist, "We are in contact with Pablo's family and have offered legal and other supportive services free of charge".

'I have been there before and always go in and never have had any problems. "I heard that he's going to be deported next week". An ICE spokeswoman said he was "illegally present" in the country after he had been granted voluntary departure by an immigration judge in March 2010. He said that a state-provided attorney had talked with Villavicencio, who is being held at a New Jersey facility.

The two young daughters of the pizza guy grabbed up by immigration officers when he made a delivery to a Brooklyn military base still don't know why their daddy hasn't come home.

Chica and the two girls attended a news conference in front of the army base Wednesday along with Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and City Councilman Justin Brannan.

"Does the Army now have some new policy that demands all non-military personnel show proof of citizenship to gain access onto the Army base?" "Is this part of some new Donald Trump deportation strategy?" He slammed the detainment as an "outrageous affront" to NY values.

A GoFundMe has been set up for the family.

'He called the NYPD and the NYPD told him I didn't have any record, that I was clean.
