Not everyone who emigrates from other countries of origin to Pennsylvania does so with all the proper paperwork in order. Many immigrants flee situations of violence or persecution, seeking asylum when they arrive at U.S. borders. Undocumented immigrants are undoubtedly at great risk for deportation.
A man in another state was recently arrested and placed in detention. Local authorities say they believe he murdered one of his co-workers. However, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers say they also have a case against the man, claiming he has been deported from the United States on multiple occasions.
Officials say the man was living under an alias when a SWAT team apprehended him at a hotel. They had reportedly hunted him down under suspicion that he had killed his colleague, with whom he was said to have had a long-standing feud. The man's co-worker had been shot while riding a tractor.
The immigrant, whom ICE officials say is eligible for removal from the United States, is currently being held in a local county jail. The sheriff's office posted a report online, stating that the man is charged with one count of murder as well as one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. The court has set bail at $5,000,000. Those in Pennsylvania who may also be facing similar, complex situations regarding possible deportation and/or criminal charges can seek guidance to determine a best course of action by requesting a meeting with an experienced U.S. immigration law attorney.
