Beristain owns Eddie’s Steak Shed in Granger.
Beristain’s family has argued he was denied due process in 2000 when he first received his deportation order. Beristain was picked up by federal immigration officials last month.
“Attorneys for Beristain, which include multiple law firms and organizations across the country, have stated they will continue to fight on behalf of Roberto, and will pursue all available legal and political remedies to bring Roberto back and correct the mistake immigration officials created nearly two decades ago,” Ansari said in the release.
Beristain was taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in Indianapolis in March.
An attorney for Beristain, Jason Flora, who is based in Indianapolis, in a March interview said that Beristain was doing a yearly check-in with ICE. Flora says Beristain has a work permit, drivers license, social security information, pays taxes and was in the process of obtaining an immigrant visa.
