Marcos Villanueva’s oldest daughter Keyli said the prospect of her father’s deportation from the U.S. has been devastating.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained Villanueva on August 8, just two days after he testified in court to defend his 12-year-old daughter, according to his attorney Willard Bakerman.
The girl had accused her 51-year-old uncle of molesting her. A judge dismissed the case in July due to lack of evidence his family said, according to the O.C. Register.
