The Trump administration deported a Muslim man Thursday who was detained by Border Patrol even though he was married to a U.S. citizen, held a valid work authorization and had a pending green card application.
Adnan Asif Parveen said he was served pork sandwiches repeatedly whilelocked up in Border Patrol custody, in spite of his religious practices, as HuffPost reported in February.
“I’m shocked it actually happened,” Jennifer Asif, Adnan’s wife, told HuffPost. “I knew it was a possibility, but I thought in the back of my mind the good guy would win. I guess the opposite is happening to so many people, so I shouldn’t be so shocked.”
Asif, a Spanish citizen who was born in Pakistan, has no criminal record in the United States, according to his lawyer, and has not faced government allegations of wrongdoing abroad. He was arrested on Jan. 11 at a Border Patrol checkpoint in Falfurrias, Texas, while driving a semi truck for work.
