Ann Arbor resident & father detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Last Wednesday, April 19, 2017, Ann Arbor resident and father, Jose Sanchez-Ronquillo, was detained by ICE (Immigration Customs Enforcement) while checking in with immigration officials. Luis, who has lived in Ann Arbor for 18 years, is married and has two children. One child attends Bach Elementary while the other attends Pioneer High School. Jose Luis has worked at a local restaurant for many years. This according to information from the organization Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition For Immigrant Rights.

According to WICIR, ICE will likely deport Jose Luis next week and are asking the community to, "Call or email your senators asking them to pressure ICE to grant a stay of removal to Jose Luis."
