BALTIMORE —A Baltimore immigrant who was arrested after dropping off his son at school has lost his bid to stay in the U.S. after immigration authorities on Tuesday denied his case.
It was a previously unwritten rule about undocumented immigrants -- stay out of trouble and they could likely stay in the U.S. without being targeted. But that's no longer the case with the aggressive crackdown by the Trump administration on undocumented immigrants.
A local Immigration and Customs Enforcement official denied the request of Jesus Peraza to be allowed to stay in the U.S. Peraza argued that he was in the country for 10 years, had a job and family. He has no record of crimes against people or property.
The ICE official ruled that there was no compelling reason to grant the request. Peraza is subject to immediate deportation.
