Wildin Acosta Fled Honduran Gangs. Now a Judge Could Send Him Back
Wildin Acosta fled Honduran gangs. Now a judge could send him back
Wildin Guillen Acosta, the Honduran native who graduated from Riverside High School in June, will travel to Charlotte on Thursday in a final bid for political asylum.
If the immigration judge rules against Acosta, he will have 30 days to appeal or face an order of removal, which could lead to his deportation to Honduras.
Acosta is due in Charlotte Immigration Court at 9 a.m. Thursday.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Acosta for being in the country illegally and missing a mandatory court appearance Jan. 28, 2016, as he left his Durham home for Riverside, where he was a senior.
