4th Filipino Detained in CNMI Amid Visa Status
Another male Filipino worker has been taken into the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Philippine Consulate General legal officer Dyan Miranda confirmed with the Saipan Tribune that their office was notified by ICE about Marlon Hernandez, who was taken into custody yesterday.
Miranda said in a phone interview that they have emailed ICE to coordinate their visit to Hernandez, who they found out is being assisted by the Federal Ombudsman’s Office.
No other information is available about Hernandez, who is now the fourth Filipino worker in detention due to lack of legal status in the CNMI.
Miranda said that Elpidio Macaraeg, who has been in detention for a month and has been on island for 26 years, and Celia Dela Cruz, who was taken into custody early this month, are both “awaiting final schedule from ICE” given their final order of removal.
Another Filipino, Crizaldo Valdez, is “awaiting his green card petition” and has no intention to seek help from the Consulate, added Miranda.
