The court has issued a temporary stay of removal for Manuel to give themselves time to fully consider the full motion for a stay.
“We are encouraged that the Eleventh Circuit has postponed action on Manuel’s removal for two weeks and that it is considering our legal arguments. We believe Manuel faces grave danger if removed to El Salvador and that removal before his case is fully heard is an affront to the First Amendment. Given this danger and the outrageous facts of his arrest, we will do everything to protect him and his First Amendment right of freedom of the press.” Statement from Mary Bauer, deputy legal director, Southern Poverty Law Center.
They ordered the government to not remove Manuel until November 30.
