New York: Haitian Immigrant Jean Montrevil Detained by ICE

Yet another sad story of someone being displaced, regardless of his clean record and use to society.

In New York City, the daughter of Haitian immigrant Jean Montrevil says her father was arrested Wednesday by ICE agents outside his home in Far Rockaway, Queens, and was taken to the Essex County jail in New Jersey. Jean Montrevil came to the U.S. from Haiti with a green card in 1986 at the age of 17. Last June, when he went to his first check-in under President Trump, Montrevil was detained, handcuffed, processed to be deported, until calls from his supporters apparently prompted his release. Speaking on Democracy Now! last summer, Jean Montrevil described the dangers he could face if he’s deported to Haiti.
