Immigration and Customs Enforcement reported Wednesday that David DePape, suspected of assaulting Nancy Pelosi over the weekend, was in the United States illegally and may be liable to expulsion.
On November 1, ICE located a detainer against Canadian citizen David DePape with the San Francisco County Jail following his arrest on October 28.
If U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issues a so-called “immigration detainer,” it sends it to law enforcement bodies to inform them that ICE is planning to take custody of a subject. ICE then informs ICE of the release.
DePape’s sentencing is of no particular concern for the enforcement of substantial criminal deportations, as the procedure is recurrent in most cases. And, regardless of the verdict and sentence DUI, the us generally awaits the conviction and punishment before enforcing deportations.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data shows Jean DePape, a Canadian citizen, crossed the border at San Ysidro Port Entry in California on March 5, 2019, as a business traveler. In the country, it’s legal for visa holders to stay in the United States for 180 days.
During a previous break-in at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s house in San Francisco, DePape, 42, was suspected of committing a number of incidents, including assault, attempted murder, and attempted kidnapping.
DePape was charged in a single count of “attempted kidnapping of a U.S. official,” according to the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of California. Per an FBI affidavit also unsealed on Monday, the charge related to Nancy Pelosi, whom DePape told police he planned to hold “hostage.”
In Tuesday’s sentencing hearing for the first indictment in state, DePape entered a not guilty plea. And on Tuesday in a federal court, he entered a plea on state charges.
