Immigration Case Raises Questions

Activists are asking lots of questions after a man who has called San Antonio home for the last decade lands at an immigration detention center.

“He’s lived in San Antonio since he was 14 years old” Kimberley Rendon told KTSA News, describing Alan Ura-Falcon. “He was adopted by his aunt, and moved here at that age.”

Ura-Falcon was arrested by the Border Patrol after the truck he was in was stopped by deputies in George West about two weeks ago.

“He’s a low priority. He doesn’t have a record. He’s never been in any detention or deportation process” Rendon said, admitting Ura-Falcon does not have legal status to be in the United States right now. She said he was legal at one time, but his Visa expired.

“He qualified for assistance under the deferred action (President Barack Obama’s controversial immigration orders now at the center of a bitter legal fight)–but, He does not have documentation at the moment” Rendon said.

More than anything else, Rendon and other activists said they want some answers from ICE about Ura-Falcon’s case.
