Ice Deports Gay Man By Mistake Who Is Then Tortured And Killed
The man’s mother claims he was illegally deported to Honduras where he was tortured and then died in prison.
Ana Lopez sued the United States and Immigration and Customer Enforcement “Officer Garcia” for the death of her son, Nelson Javier Avila-Lopez, in Federal Court.
Lopez claims her son had a stay of deportation, through counsel, but ICE deported him anyway to Honduras, where he was “thrown, without formal charges, into the notorious Comayagua prison … where he suffered unspeakable torture for nearly four months alongside the sadistic criminals that he sought to escape.”
Her son died in Comayagua prison on Valentine’s Day 2012, in a fire that killed 357 other prisoners with him, his mother says.
