Pizza Man detained by immigration officers after delivering pizza to Army base


The headline of this CNN story says it all.  An undocumented immigrant with a U.S. citizen wife and two citizen children, Pablo Villavicencio arrived at the Fort Hamilton base in Brooklyn last week to deliver an order from the brick-oven pizza restaurant in Queens where he worked. He showed his New York City identification card to the guard as he had done several times before, but it wasn't enough this time, his wife says.  Now, Villavicencio faces removal.

UPDATE  (June 10):  CNN reports that the a federal court has stayed Villavicecio's removal until July 20.  The Legal Aid Society had sought the stay. 


The case is attracting a considerable amount of media attention.
