A construction worker hurt in last month’s collapse of the Hard Rock Hotel construction site in New Orleans has been deported to his native Honduras on Friday.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Bryan Cox said Delmer Joel Ramirez Palma, 38, was flown to Honduras from Alexandria International Airport, which is near several ICE detention facilities in central Louisiana.

The article goes on to state the following:

Border Patrol officers arrested Ramirez Palma two days after he fell several stories as the upper floors of the hotel project caved in on October 12.

The report states that Ramirez Palma, who was installing window framing on the building, had spoken to a supervisor about construction shortcuts prior to the deadly collapse.

Ramirez Palma had reportedly been fighting a deportation order since 2016, and had already lost an appeal on Oct 3.

He was arrested by Border Patrol two days after the collapse when he was out fishing and couldn’t produce a fishing license.

Immigrant rights groups and activists are denouncing the Trump administration for deporting Ramirez Palma.
