Lutu's Story

Home » Lutu's Story

Having grown up in New York, Lutu (age 22), was about to start his final year in college when he was stopped for a minor traffic violation.  Due to his status as an undocumented immigrant, Lutu was taken into Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody and paid a $10,000 bond.  Nevertheless, Lutu was rearrested and detained after voluntarily returning to the ICE office.  Thanks to his Catholic Charities attorney and CLINIC’s advocacy efforts, ICE released Lutu and deferred his deportation to Uruguay for a year so that he could complete his college degree in the U.S.
