Joel Massie came home from academy last week exclusively to realise something was different. His father “re no longer” around.
Arino Massie, of Metuchen, New Jersey, was evicted back to his native country of Indonesia, a lieu he fled 16 years ago because of religious persecution.
Now Joel is going to grow up without a father in the U.S ., where he was born. He still feels it hard to accept this.
” He’s been with me for 13 times, because I was born with him , of course. And for those working 13 times, he’s been species, happy and adoration ,” Joel told WPIX TV.” It’s been sad, accentuating. We’ve been fighting for the past week and a half to stand .”
Arino Massie is a Chinese Christian who lived in Indonesia, but missed a deadline to apply for forgivenes shortly after his arrival in the U.S.
After he overstayed his tourist visa, Massie was ordered to leave the country in 2006. Nonetheless, the Reformed Church of Highland Park impressed an agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to allow him three other Indonesian-born Christians stands of removal if they checked in with ICE every year.
But this year ICE took “the mens” into imprisonment, and on May 18 an immigration referee said that Massie and the others be evicted , according to News1 2. com.
A spokesman for ICE exhausted this declaration:
Arino Massie, who was a visa overstay, was said removed on July 17, 2006 by an immigration referee with the Department of Justice’s Executive Office of Immigration Review. After wearying all legal remedies, on May 18, 2017, ICE Enforcement and Removal Officers removed Arino Massie to Indonesia.
Frederick Rattu, a sidekick of Massie’s who came to the U.S. from Indonesia in 1994 with a tourist visa and became a law resident a few years later, concern about what might happen to Massie when he to Indonesia.
” Can you suppose someone applying for asylum and then going back to Indonesia? How are they going to treat him ,” Rattu told USA Today.
The newspaper notes further that Massie is one of 41,000 suspected undocumented immigrants who were arrested during President Donald Trump’s first 100 daylights. That’s a 40 percent increase from the same period last year.
The Trump administration has augmented the scope of those subject to deportation to include people such as Massie, who don’t have criminal records.
That’s a misuse of available resources, according to Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale, of the Reformed Church of Highland Park.
” There’s no reason to send him apart right now; he’s absolutely not a criminal .~ ATAGEND These are kinfolk people who happen to have final deportation orders ,” Kaper-Dale told the Associated Press. ” Our folks got caught up in that new dragnet .”
An immigration attorney is indicating to law jurisdictions that Massie needs to come back to America to be with his son, Joel.
He may have a harder time explaining what’s happening to Joel.
” What I don’t understand is why he’s being evicted ,” Joel told News1 2. com.” He’s been cooperative. He hasn’t done anything against the law. He has a clear enter .”
