More than 100 people rally against pastor’s deportation

CEDAR RAPIDS — More than 100 people have gathered outside the Linn County Jail to rally against the deportation of an Iowa City pastor to Honduras.

Max Villatoro is a pastor at First Mennonite Church and a father of four children. His wife says he was arrested by immigration officials on his way to work Tuesday. Federal documents say Villatoro illegally came to the U.S. in 1995.

He pleaded guilty to a case of record tampering four years later.
