A father of three from New Haven is set to be deported today back to Ecuador.
ICE officials have ordered Nelson Pinos back to the country after he has lived in the U.S. for 25 years.
A rally is planned in Hartford later this morning.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal sent a letter to ICE urging the agency to grant Pinos a stay of removal.
In part, it read, “Mr. Pinos is a father to three young U.S. citizen children, ages 15, 12 and 5. I am told Mr. Pinos was gainfully employed and has paid his taxes. While I understand and respect the difficult task ICE faces, I cannot understand how deporting Mr. Pinos is the best use of ICE resources."
In New Britain, a father there is also facing deportation today back to his native Ecuador.
Milton Serrano came to the U.S. back in 1995.
His most recent stay was also denied.
