    N.C. - Riverside High school graduate Wildin Acosta to face tough immigration judge

    DURHAM
    Wildin Acosta will make his final bid for asylum in the United States when he appears in Charlotte Immigration Court on Tuesday morning.

    If Judge V. Stuart Couch rules against Acosta, the Riverside High School graduate will have 30 days to appeal or face an order of removal, which could lead to his deportation to Honduras.

    The immigration-focused activist organization Alerta Migratoria NC wrote in an email that Couch denied 81.6 percent of asylum cases during fiscal years 2011-16.

    As he left his home for school Jan. 28, 2016, Acosta was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents for being in the country illegally and missing a mandatory court appearance.

    After spending more than six months in Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin, Georgia, he was released on $10,000 bail.

    “I know what it means to be a refugee,” Acosta said at a rally in February. Of his time in detention, he added, “It’s the hardest thing that can happen to you.”

    Acosta has received support from members of the larger Durham community, including teachers, fellow students, Durham city officials and U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield, who sought his release and a hearing to consider his request for asylum.

    Acosta told immigration authorities he was fleeing gang violence in his native Honduras when he was stopped at the Texas border in 2014.

    He attended a court hearing on Dec. 17, 2014, but failed to show up for one in March 2015.

    Acosta’s arrest came a part of ICE’s nationwide campaign to locate and deport immigrants who crossed the border illegally.

    Why are we allowing courts to waste taxpayer money?

    Illegal aliens should not get any court hearing and should be subject to immediate deportation.

    There seems to be purposeful confusion here with these central americans. Some crossed the border and said "fleeing violence' and were escorted to anywhere there was a relative legal or illegal and rec'd the proposed $1700 a month with healthcare obama decreed. Some didn't follow up on their hearings because they are sneaky illegals going underground because their stories are false, yet they attended our schools paid for by our taxpayers - guarantee you they are receiving monies/food stamps/healthcare access also.

    Is this some kind of scam on Americans? What is trump doing to stop this faux program for central americans UACs, they NEVER LEAVE - 98% of them get to stay and eventually bring more relatives. There are hundreds of thousands of them and anchor babying too. The UACs escorted are not counted in the costs of illegals, they are not considered illegals - this fellow is because he did not have the decency to show up for hearings.

    This has to end - they are not civilized and should not be in this country. Can't travel to their counties outside of the few "tourists" resorts if you value your life. Why are we surrounded by them and on the dole too? The pics of them crossing the border show mostly well dressed and healthy - just looking for more of a $$$ payout than they can get in their country. Here have a free education on us with all the costly fanfares of ESL teachers, babies on us from pre birth to death while American citizens are deprived of "free" healthcare, cut our seniors to the bare minimum too.

    When is trump going to stop this - they are coming across the border daily, non-stop.

    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL

    Durham man Wildin Acosta’s deportation case continued until December

    By Kelly Kennedy
    Published: October 3, 2017, 7:53 am Updated: October 3, 2017, 10:58 am

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCN) — Wildin David Guillen-Acosta, a Riverside High School graduate, appeared before a judge in Charlotte Tuesday morning to see if he would be deported back to Honduras. No decision was made and the case has been continued until Dec. 5.

    The judge in the case approved Nardine Guirguis as Acosta’s new attorney. The continuance will give Guirguis time to look over the case.

    DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — Undocumented immigrants across the country are worried about their future in the United States and in Durham, one young man is fighting to stay in North Carolina.

    Wildin David Guillen-Acosta, a Riverside High School graduate, is set to appear before a judge in Charlotte Tuesday morning at 8:30 to see if he will be deported back to Honduras.

    Acosta was in Durham Tuesday morning before his hearing and spoke with CBS North Carolina, but did not want to go on camera.

    At 17 years old, Acosta says he fled Honduras to escape gang violence and came to North Carolina. Friends and supporters say that if he’s sent back to Honduras that he could be killed.

    “That’s the reason that he cannot go back so we are really worried about today what is gonna happen. He’s really nervous, he’s just thinking about his life right now [and] what is gonna happen,” said his friend Ivan Almonte.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Acosta in 2016 for missing a court appearance for being in the country illegally. He spent six months in a detention center in Georgia and is now out on bail.

    CBS North Carolina spoke with a woman whose husband was in the same detention center in Georgia that Acosta was.

    “I think what he’s doing is brave. I think what he stood up for in Honduras is brave and coming here is scary and brave and I’m completely against detention centers. I know what they can do. My husband was in a detention center,” one of Acosta’s supporters said.

    Her husband was deported to Honduras in December.

    Acosta and his supporters left for Charlotte around 6 a.m. If the judge rules against Acosta, he will have 30 days to appeal the decision.

    Just dismiss your old lawyer and get another one right before your court date. That's a typical maneuver for acquiring a court continuance.

    Judge orders Wildin Acosta deported, but not yet. Here’s why.

    DURHAM
    The Charlotte Immigration Court has ordered former Riverside High School student Wildin Acosta deported, according to the Durham organization Alerta Migratoria NC.

    The order came from Judge V. Stuart Couch, said Viridiana Martínez, director of Alerta Migratoria. Acosta will not be immediately deported, she said. He recently married his high school sweetheart, who has filed a petition for asylum. Acosta will be allowed to stay in Durham while a court is allowed to rule on the appeal based on her petition, she said.

    Couch gave a continuance to Acosta in October. In October, a spokeswoman for Alerta Migratoria NC said the continuance would allow Acosta’s new lawyer, immigration attorney Nardine Guirguis, the appropriate amount of time to review Acosta’s case as needed to best represent the new client.Neither Acosta nor his attorney, his supporters or members of the media were present during the judge’s ruling, Martínez said. “Instead of waiting to give that decision in a transparent manner ... he didn’t do that,” she said.


    Acosta maintains that he fears returning to his native Honduras because of rampant gang violence. “If I am deported, I know they would kill me,” Acosta said during an October interview.


    As he left his home for school on Jan. 28, 2016, Acosta was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents for being in the country illegally and missing a mandatory court appearance.


    After spending more than six months in Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin, Georgia, he was released on $10,000 bail.


    Acosta told immigration authorities he was fleeing gang violence in Honduras when he was stopped at the Texas border in 2014.


    He attended a court hearing on Dec. 17, 2014, but failed to show up for one in March 2015.


    Acosta’s arrest came as part of a nationwide campaign by ICE to locate and deport immigrants who had crossed the border illegally.
