U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement

 Columbus clergy are helping a local resident stay in the United States. 

An Ohio businessman who has lived in the United States for 38 years and had been granted a temporary stay of his deportation to his native Jordan has been taken into custody by federal immigration officials.  

A task force comprised of local and federal law enforcement and run by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's homeland security division in Columbus has seized nearly 2.4 million dollar this year in proceeds from criminal activities.
