There may be some new developments today in the case of Rigo Padilla.
Padilla's lawyer is meeting this morning at the downtown Chicago offices of ICE, Immigration Customs and Enforcement.
"We hope that what we end up with is a celebration," Joshua Hoyt, executive director of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, said at a press conference moments ago.
Padilla, 21, was brought here by his parents when he was 6 years old. He was arrested for a DUI in January, which led to deportation proceedings. You can read the first, second, third and fourth posts here for more background on his case.
I will have an update on this story for you later this afternoon.
Clarification: An earlier version of this post said Padilla was meeting with ICE but his lawyer was there on his behalf.
