ICE Action Presses Timeline

An attorney for one of the founders of YubaNet news website, Pascale Fusshoeller, does not understand why Immigration Customs Enforcement agents acted so swiftly when taking Fuesholler into custody Friday after being arrested earlier in the week following a minor traffic incident.

Attorney Thomas A Johnson says the incident uncovered the fact that Fusshoeller was in the United States on an expired VISA. Johnson says that Pascale could have been issued a citation for providing false identification. However, the officer arrested her for felony false impersonation.

Johnson says that at any point a number of interventions could have taken place at either the state or the federal level that could have precluded the ICE action. As a result of no intervention Pascale is in custody at the Sacramento County Jail fearing for her future. Johnson says they are doing everything possible on Pascale’s behalf, but she is struggling.

Johnson and others are trying to get in front of a Federal Judge to place a stay on Fussehoeller’s deportation pending review of Pascale’s marital status as well as good standing and community involvement in Nevada County.

"she is being treated like a criminal"

If the shoe fits, wear it.

"it could have been avoided by thoughtful behavior"... and for a second I thought the attorney would be reasonable and suggest that Pascale should not have stayed for FIFTEEN YEARS, opened a business, driven without a license, and/or not represented herself as another person to law enforcement... but of course, all of those laws are just a joke. To me, thoughtful behavior entails not committing that entire laundry list of crimes (the ones we know she has committed) but instead, owing up to your wrong doings.

I am not that old, but back in my day, we admitted when we were wrong and didn't put the blame on other people/things. I don't know Pascale, but it troubles me that her and many, many other people continue to blame other people/things instead of owing up to their own mistakes and infractions (or in this case, their felonious behavior).

Well said my friend

Yeah let's deport someone that helps the community and not clean up the meth problem, such a better way to spend our tax dollars. Being a stickler about every law is not using
common sense or very wise IMHO.

You have no clue what an asset to our community she is.

a true asset to this community would be driving licensed and insured wouldnt run stop lights or signs and certainly would never lie to law enforcement personnel under any circumstance, that IS a crime.

sandy I an sure she has done some good things for our community, but remember she needs to answer for providing false information, I am sure it was out of fear, but no excuse, maybe if she had provided correct information she would have got a ticket for a unlicensed driver, and car possibly impounded(Maybe). The facts are the facts and if she wants to be here then follow all the rules set forth. as most of us try to do. everyone would have been treated the same way in this incident. what's compounded the issue is that her visa is expired for the past 15 yrs. what's her excuse? I wont speculate, but there's no excuse.
