Hollister family pleads for help hours before father will be deported to Mexico

HOLLISTER (KRON) — A family in Hollister is pleading for help, just hours before their father and husband will be deported to Mexico.

Mauricio Magdaleno-Montes was detained by immigration officials earlier Tuesday after he had filed a motion to stay in the United States. He has been in the U.S. illegally for more than 20 years.

Mauricio’s wife, who suffers from a brain injury, is begging officials to let him stay to take care of her and their children. Magdaleno-Montes was arrested for DUI in 1998 and 2001.

KRON4 reached out to immigration and customs enforcement. Officials there said they will look into the case but add the DUI arrests contributed to his being denied a stay.
