PATERSON, NJ – U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today condemned the Trump’s administration’s deportation of Malachy McAllister, an Irish national and longtime resident of New Jersey’s Ninth Congressional District.
“For over 20 years, Malachy McAllister has been a valuable part of our North Jersey community. His roots are in New Jersey. America is where he belongs. His deportation at Trump’s hand is a heartless decision and separates a man with medical issues from his family for no good reason that puts him and his family at risk. For years, my office has fought for a resolution to Mr. McAllister’s case. This is not the end. I will not give up trying to get Mr. McAllister back to the United States so he can remain here with his family permanently.”
