Lexius Saint Martin, 35, came to the U.S. as a child and was taken last month by ICE officials, who plan to deport him.
A crowd rallied on Saturday outside City Hall, calling on Maine’s top politicians to help Lexius Saint Martin, a Waterville man awaiting deportation to Haiti, return to Maine to his wife, children and unborn child.
Saint Martin, 35, came to the U.S. with his family from Haiti as a refugee when he was 11. He was taken Jan. 2 by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials as he was leaving his Oakland Street home to go to work. He is being held in a jail in New Hampshire.
