According to a report on 12news.com, former Curry player Hector Majul has had his visa stripped.
Majul went back to his hometown in Mexico for a visit, but when he tried to re-enter the United States, he was denied, according to the report.
The report further stated that Majul had his legal papers in order and he’s made the trip to Mexico several times, but immigration officials insisted on this recent occasion that he was in violation of the law.
Majul played the last two years at Curry, scoring a goal and five points in 23 games. The report said that Majul had earned a scholarship at Neumann (spelled “Newman” in the report).
According to the report, after going through an immigration checkpoint at the Houston Hobby Airport, Majul was told he was being deported immediately. Officers questioned prescription pills he said he was carrying for his girlfriend. After his explanation, he was cleared, but the agents reportedly still detained him.
Having played youth hockey in Arizona, his Scottsdale host mom has created a Facebook page to raise awareness and to drum up support.
Majul has appealed his deportation, according to the report, but it was denied. The deportation order prevents him from entering the U.S. for at least five years.
