Statement issued by the office of U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX).
“We are aware that Rrustem Neza was recently and suddenly detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which is holding him for deportation on a date it will not disclose, though it informed us it will be sometime in August.
“After first indicating that no action would be taken until December, ICE has done nothing here to help its credibility. ICE has now also severely limited its communication on this issue. Though ICE seems determined to move quickly ahead with delivering this man’s life into imminent danger, I am continuing to fight against this wrongful deportation or at least find a better solution that won’t put his life in peril.
“I have and will continue to stay in contact with officials at the Department of Homeland Security to see what can be done to postpone or halt Rrustem’s deportation. I’m sure East Texans will also help me provide all the support we can for the Neza family during this very difficult time.”
