Pineda says the Argentine faces deportation after being denied a request that allows certain immigrants in the country illegally to stay.Rojas was set to attend the Miami premier of “The Infiltrators” on Tuesday.The documentary won two awards at the Sundance Film Festival last month. It centres on a mission to infiltrate the facility to get Rojas and others out in 2012, when he was detained for overstaying his visa.U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it can’t comment on the case.Adriana Gomez Licon, The Associated Presslast_img
