(Updated 1:52 p.m.) A federal immigration judge Thursday set a $4,000 bond for Josemaria Islas allowing him temporarily to leave jail and return to New Haven. Meanwhile:
A top gubernatorial aide joined New Haven activists at a Capitol rally in support of the Mexican immigrants plight . The state judicial branch announced it may change a policy that led it to hand Islas over to the feds. The feds said they will continue trying to deport Islas, whom they called a serial immigration offender.
Islas appeared in federal immigration court in Hartford. Later, at 11:15 a.m., about 35 people gathered outside the courthouse to celebrate news that a judge had set a bond in the case, enabling Islas to leave jail as soon as Friday.
Islas faces deportation procedures against him. The federal Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is trying to send him back to Mexico. An ICE official said Thursday that Islas has already been deported four times. At the rally, Islas brother denied that claim.
Megan Fountain of New Havens Unidad Latina en Acción informed supporters of Judge Philip Verrillos decision at the end of the rally.
