Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-Paterson) is applauding the Trump administration’s decision to stay the deportation of Malachy McAllister, a member of the Irish National Liberation Army during the 1990s.

McAllister fled Belfast 23 years ago after a gun and bomb attack on his home.  He lives in Rutherford  and runs a stone masonry business.

“The decision by the Homeland Security Department to allow Mr. McAllister to remain in America is terrific news. Mr. McAllister and his family have set roots in our community. America is where he belongs. I thank (acting Homeland Security) Secretary (Kevin) McAleenan for granting a stay. Common sense and human dignity prevailed in his decision,” said Pascrell.  “We have fought for decades and will continue to fight and use this time to work towards a permanent resolution for this case.”
