Pablo Villavicencio was taken into custody on June 1, 2018, at Fort Hamilton Army Base in Brooklyn and now faces deportation.

Pablo Villavicencio was detained when he made a delivery to Fort Hamilton army base on Friday and was asked for a second form of ID.

He ended up "signing a waiver permitting a background check", which revealed there was an active warrant for Villavicencio's deportation and prompted military police to call immigration agents, the base and Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.

Villavicencio, who is married to a USA citizen with whom he has two children, had been applying for a green card when he was detained by ICE, said his lawyers.

He would have to get a waiver as people who have spent more than a year in the US illegally can't re-enter for a decade.

An Army spokeswoman told The New York Times that if visitors don't have a military identification card, they have to get a pass that requires a background check. He said that a state-provided attorney had talked with Villavicencio, who is being held at a New Jersey facility.

The stay is in effect until July 20, when Nathan will hear arguments on the case, the Legal Aid Society, which represents Villavicencio, said in a statement.

"Please ICE, do the right thing with my husband", his wife Sandra Chica said earlier this week, CBS New York reports.

"I had one message for her: Anything we can do to help, we will do. I'm listening", Councilman Justin Brannan (D-Brooklyn) said. "He is the center of our family and our main support".

According to an ICE spokesperson, the pizza delivery man was ordered by a judge to leave the country in 2010, and has been a "ICE fugitive" ever since.

"He was a tax-payer, contributor to our community entering this base, and now he went from being in this base - that's here to protect us - to prison", Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said.

"As such, his voluntary departure order became a final order of removal", she said. "Is this part of some new Donald Trump deportation strategy?"

"Sandra spoke to me as a mother of their two daughters - anxious for her husband and her children", he said in a statement. Steven Choi, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition, said in a press release "it's absolutely disgusting when the strongest military in the world punches down by going after pizza delivery men".

"But this time, the guard - whom he identified as African American - asked him for a valid identification document, and since he didn't have one, the soldier called immigration to arrest him", Chica told El Diario.

Also on Friday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security in Villavicencio's defense, demanding an investigation into the practices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
