"Today, United States District Court Judge Crotty asked many pointed and probing questions about Pablo Villavicencio’s 53-day detention and the Administration’s highly aggressive immigration enforcement practices. It is our position that the Federal government wholly failed to address or justify their cruel treatment of Mr. Villavicencio, a person with no criminal record, a U.S. citizen wife, and two young U.S. citizen daughters. The Legal Aid Society is hopeful that the Judge will find our arguments meritorious and will release Pablo back to his family and community as soon as possible."
