Judge Orders Release of Pizza Delivery Man from Immigration Detention

Original story: Immigration Story out of New York is a Sign of the Times

A judge ordered the immediate release of an undocumented man attempting to deliver pizza to a military base in New York City on Tuesday. Pablo Villavicencio Calderon has been in immigration detention since his arrest on June 1. At the time of his arrest, Calderon was married to an American citizen and had a pending green card application. Federal district court judge Paul A. Crotty, a George W. Bush appointee, granted Calderon a stay of deportation while his permanent residency case is considered.

Crotty had some pointed questions for the U.S. government lawyer tasked with keeping Calderon locked up, asking if the government’s case against Calderon displayed “any concept of justice”.
