The illegal immigrant Irish community was shocked to discover that a popular immigrant who overstayed his visa was nabbed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, and is set to be deported.
John Cunningham is a prominent community figure in the Boston area, with a successful electrician business, but that didn’t stop ICE from arresting him for immigration violations.
“There’s a great deal of fear in the Irish American community and the Irish community,” said immigration lawyer John Foley, a friend of Cunningham’s.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has vowed to protect all illegal aliens in his city, and admonished an Irish politician for petitioning President Donald Trump on behalf of only Irish illegal immigrants.
