Latino Rebels has reached out to ICE for comment, and received the following comment about whether Villavicencio-Calderón will be deported this Monday:

Pablo Villavicencio-Calderon is an illegally present citizen and national of Ecuador. In March 2010, he was granted voluntary departure by an immigration judge, but failed to depart by July 2010 as ordered. As such, his voluntary departure order became a final order of removal and is an ICE fugitive. On June 1, Villavicencio-Calderon was detained by military police officers and turned over to ICE. He remains in ICE custody pending removal.

A ICE spokesperson did not see exactly where Villavicencio-Calderón is being held, but according to Calzadilla-Palacio, it is the Hudson County Correctional Facility in Kearny, New Jersey.

The following Twitter moment has more information about Villavicencio-Calderón’s case. According to reports, Villavicencio-Calderón, who is from Ecuador, was in the process of getting his green card. His wife and his two children are U.S. citizens.
