Suspect Binh Thai Luc, 35, a Vietnamese citizen, was contacted by ICE agents while he was serving his sentence for robbery and assault with a deadly weapon at San Quentin State Prison.
After he was ordered to be deported, the agency sought the official documents it needed to return him to Vietnam, but never got them, said Gillian Christensen, ICE’s deputy press secretary.
U.S. law establishes that all aliens who face a deportation order can’t be held for more than 180 days. After that, if they can’t be removed from the country within the reasonably foreseeable future, ICE has to release them, she said.
Rare Honus Wagner card could fetch $1.5 million
ST. LOUIS — Bill Goodwin of suburban St. Louis has been in the collectibles business for a quarter of a century, but he said the 102-year-old baseball card he is putting up for auction is about as good as it gets.
Mr. Goodwin will begin an online auction for a 1909 Honus Wagner baseball card, one of the most sought-after sports collectibles in the world. Mr. Goodwin expects the card to fetch at least $1 million and perhaps as much as $1.5 million.
The card is owned by a Houston businessman who has asked not to be identified. The auction starts Tuesday and continues through April 19.
It isn’t the only valuable card that is part of the auction. Mr. Goodwin is also auctioning a rare Eddie Plank card that could be worth up to $500,000.
