ICE

He’s Married To An American Citizen And Has An American Son. But He’s Getting Deported Anyway

What’s News In This Story?


–The Musmanno family is in the middle of a horror that is becoming common in immigrant communities around the United States. 

-A loved one is in a ICE jail. And there’s little hope of getting him out. He’s scheduled to be deported. 

-Flavio Musmanno has been sitting in an ICE jail in Ohio since August 28. 

-Flavio is an undocumented immigrant who has lived in the United States since 2000.

Flavio Musmanno and his family.

-Flavio has long worked construction jobs and was well liked by bosses who considered him a hard worker. He followed the work to Seneca County, Ohio. 

-On August 28, he lost his wallet at a gas station. 

-Within an hour, and many of the facts surrounding his arrest are still murky, he was called by an ICE officer and then detained. 

-ICE did not respond to a request for information surrounding Flavio’s arrest. 

-Flavio came to the country from Argentina under the visa waiver program and stayed after it expired. He married his longtime girlfriend Fabiana Zuin in 2017. At the time they were married, Fabiana was a permanent resident who was on the way to receiving her citizenship.

-Fabiana is now a US citizen. 

-The family’s attorney tried to get the arresting officer to push for Flavio’s release. 

-ICE has the legal authority to use discretion and release those they arrest due to extenuating personal circumstances. 

-But the family’s attorney, Linda Osberg-Braun told RISE NEWS that ICE has not been using discretion like they used under the Trump Administration. 

-So despite having an American son and being married to an American wife, Flavio Musmanno is scheduled to be deported back to a country he hasn’t been to in 18 years. 

-And due to the special circumstances involving his entry into the US back in 2000 under the visa waiver program, Flavio does not have a right to be seen by a judge. 

-Unless something changes, Flavio will be deported on October 9th. 

-According to Osberg-Braun, he won’t be able to come back to the US for up to 10 years. 

-The family is raising money to provide for the legal defense of Flavio.

What Would You Do?: Former Cuban Refugee Turns In Undocumented Girl Who Escaped ICE Custody

What’s News In This Story?


 

–A Homestead business owner is under fire for turning in a 15-year-old girl who escaped from a nearby jail for undocumented children.

The girl hid in the owner’s car repair shop for over an hour and begged not to be forced to go back to the jail where she claimed she was separated from her family.

Some say the business owner, a Cuban immigrant who came to the US in 1971, should have showed compassion for the girl and helped her escape.
