A vocal and visible Twin Cities advocate for immigrant rights and immigration reform is himself facing deportation -- to the surprise of those who have worked with him for years.

Mariano Perez Espinoza, 41, executive director of the Minnesota Immigrant Freedom Network, is in jail awaiting deportation for allegedly being in the country illegally after a previous deportation.

Espinoza, a native of Mexico, has advocated openly on immigration issues for years.

Shawn Neudauer, a spokesman for the local U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office, on Wednesday confirmed that Espinoza is in custody. As of Wednesday afternoon, he had not been returned to Mexico.

Keller said the original deportation stemmed from Espinoza being the victim of fraud by a "notario," or a person who is not an attorney who gave him legal advice.

Sounds like a personal problem. This is a case of buyer beware.After he has been deported case is closed. He returns and it caught up with him.

That’s what we should be doing to all these ‘immigrant advocates’ is making sure they are all legal

There needs to be a mandatory jail term for re entry after deportation, but I will not hold my breath waiting for republicans to move in that direction.

Great comment from one of the posters in the Star & Sickle. When Chipotle in Minnesota fired 450 illegal employees he did not see one of them boarded up. I’m sure the same goes for the Pei Wei restaurants in Arizona.
