Anna’s lawyer Manny Arora previously revealed to Initiated that Anna could be deported as early as March 17 after losing her appeal to stay in the United States, saying, “Legally, they shouldn’t be able to deport him until at least the 17th. But it’s ICE, and there are a lot of documents in his case, so you never know if there was a mistake paperwork. In the end, they can do whatever they want.”

Anna opened up about her time at the ICE facility in an essay to Insider, writing, “My visa overstay was involuntary and largely out of my control. I have served my prison term, but am appealing my criminal conviction to clear my name. I did not violate any New York State or ICE parole rules. Despite all of this, I have yet to receive a clear and fair path to compliance.
