Sen. Bob Menendez Intern, Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta, Facing Deportation After ICE Arrest

Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta, 18, who worked as an unpaid intern for Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), is facing deportation after being arrested by federal immigration authorities. To make matters worse, he is a registered sex offender.

A U.S. official told The Associated Press that officials at the Homeland Security Department instructed immigration agents not to arrest 18-year-old Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta until after Election Day. Source

ICE categorically denies the claim made by the Associated Press that they were asked not to reveal the arrest until after the election:   ’The report is categorically false. ICE followed standard process in coordination with its federal partners and local prosecutors before taking appropriate enforcement action.’
