His wife, Sandra Chica, told NBC New York on Saturday that she was told Villavicencio could have been deported as quickly as Monday.
"Please ICE, do the right thing with my husband", said his wife, Sandra Chica.
When he failed to produce the required documents, the soldier detained him and called Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which established that the father of two girls, aged two and three, had been living illegally in the country since 2010.
"Mr. Villavicencio's expedited removal serves no legitimate public safety objective and the circumstances leading to his arrest and detention raise serious legal and policy concerns that warrant proper investigation and adjudication", Cuomo's letter said. They actually know me and the sergeant knows me for some time doing delivery, ' he said.
'They've got two little kids, so she'd have to struggle as a single mom, ' he told the New York Post.
Immigration agents arrested Pablo Villavicencio, 35, at the Fort Hamilton military base in Brooklyn, New York on Friday where he had gone to make a delivery. "I did not commit a crime", Villavicencio said in Spanish to PIX11 News earlier this week.

Judge Alison J. Nathan of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY ordered Saturday evening for the government to show why a temporary preliminary injunction should not be granted in the case of Pablo Villavicencio Calderon, an Ecuadorean immigrant, according to Villavicencio's lawyers. He never did. His wife, a US citizen, said they filed a petition challenging that order.
"Although we are disappointed that Pablo will remained detained, today's stay is a victory for him and his family, and also for due process and the fair administration of justice", said Gregory Copeland, the supervising attorney of Legal Aid's Immigration Law Unit.
The couple married five years ago and this year Villavicencio applied for his green card. "We ask ICE to release him and let him come back to us". Tell me how taking Pablo off the street makes our nation safer. Brooklyn City Councilman Justin Brannan said. He said that a state-provided attorney had talked with Villavicencio, who is being held at a New Jersey facility.
When he arrived at Fort Hamilton, guards requested identification and he produced a city identification card.
"Immigrant New Yorkers like Pablo Villavicencio provide for their families by working hard and making sacrifices, they shouldn't be ripped from their communities and their crying children for pursuing the ever dimmer American dream", he said.
