Haitian Immigrant Jean Montrevil Remains Free After ICE Check-in

HeadlineJul 21, 2017

And in New York City, Haitian immigrant Jean Montrevil walked free from a Manhattan federal building Thursday after ICE immigration officials ordered him to check in for a meeting that could have ended in his deportation. Jean Montrevil came to the U.S. from Haiti with a green card in 1986 at the age of 17. Last month, when he went to his first check-in under President Trump, he was detained, handcuffed, processed to be deported, until calls from his supporters apparently prompted his release. Click here for a full interview with Jean Montrevil and his daughter and lawyer.
