Senator Richard Blumenthal plans to join a New Fairfield man to his final ICE check-in, ahead of Joel Colindres' scheduled deportation on the 31st.
Blumenthal and supporters will lead a rally outside immigration offices this morning to protest what they say is unnecessary and unjust action. He says details of new efforts to keep the Colindres family together will also be outlined.
The 33-year old father of two young children is married to a U.S. citizen. In 2015, Immigration Services approved his wife's application to sponsor Joel for legal status, but the process is not finalized yet.
He fled Guatemala in 2004 while facing death threats.
