Officials Vacate Deportation Order for Father Detained by ICE

Officials Vacate Deportation Order for Father Detained by ICE”

The Board of Immigration Appeals vacated a deportation order for Romulo Avelica, a father of four whose detainment sparked outrage and rallies.

Avelica-Gonzalez's arrest by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials was filmed by his sobbing daughter; the video went viral, bringing worldwide attention to his case.

Avelica-Gonzalez has been held at Adelanto detention facility in San Bernardino since he was arrested in February while dropping off his daughters at school. One of his daughters, Fatima, recorded his arrest and the video went viral as a stark representation of Trump's harsh immigration policies. His lawyers settled those misdemeanors in June, meaning Avelica-Gonzalez could be released from the Adelanto Detention Facility in San Bernardino, CA, following an August 30 bond hearing.

His backers also say he is not the serious criminal that law enforcement should be targeting. "I'm very happy the BIA did the right thing to end his order for deportation, and I'm very thankful for that", said Avelica's daughter, Fatima Avelica. On Thursday, the Board of Immigration Appeals rejected Avelica-Gonzalez's original deportation order according to The Los Angeles Times.

"He's very pleased", Diamante said. The court's ruling temporarily halts Avelica-Gonzalez's deportation while it reviews his case. His wife is applying for what's known as a U-Visa, which is reserved for victims of crimes and their immediate family members. That means Avelica-Gonzalez, 49, is still in deportation proceedings, but it could take years for a judge to enter a new decision.
