The Story Behind The Interview

In English

A Mexican immigrant was recruited by the FBI to be an informant, under the promise of receiving his immigration papers. After the case was over, the federal investigation bureau changed its mind and made it available to the immigration authorities for deportation.

“They told me that they would help me with my legal status, they told me that if I helped them they helped me but at the end when everything went to court, they sent me to lock me up and they lost me in the system so I would not testify against the police officers. When there were no witnesses, I could not press charges against them, “said the immigrant who identified himself as Albino and asked not to show his face.

“I went on bail and I still have an immigration shackle on my leg so they know my location,” he added.

The man hired the services of immigration lawyer Natalie Ghayoumi who is using different strategies to avoid his deportation.

En Español

Un inmigrante mexicano fue reclutado por el FBI para ser informante, bajo la promesa de recibir sus papeles migratorios. Después de terminado el caso, el buró federal de investigaciones cambió de opinión y lo puso a disposición de las autoridades migratorias para ser deportado.

“Me dijeron que me iban ayudar con mi estatus legal, me dijeron que si yo les ayudaba ellos me ayudaban a mí pero a lo último cuando se fue todo a corte, me mandaron a encerrar y me perdieron en el sistema para que no testificara contra los policías. No habiendo testigos no podía ponerles cargos”, relató el inmigrante que se identificó como Albino y quien pidió que no le mostraran su rostro.

“Salí bajo fianza y todavía ando con un grillete de la inmigración en la pierna para que sepan mi ubicación”, añadió.

El hombre contrató los servicios de la abogada de inmigración Natalie Ghayoumi quien está utilizando diferentes estrategias para evitar su deportación.
