Slice of strife: Pizza delivery guy busted by ICE agents after delivery to Brooklyn Army base

A Brooklyn pizza delivery man was served up to immigration officials by soldiers at the Fort Hamilton Army Base — and the patriots kept the pie.

City officials called Wednesday for the release of Pablo Villavicencio, a father of two married to a U.S. citizen who faces deportation after his unexpected arrest last week by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

“This is absolutely ridiculous,” said City Council member Justin Brannan at a news conference calling for the native Ecuadorian’s freedom. “You’re tearing families apart. For what?

“Is our city, state and nation any safer today because they took a pizza delivery guy off the streets?”

Villavicencio, 35, and his wife lived with their daughters Luciana, 3, and Antonia, 2, in Hempstead, L.I., until his arrest Friday after bringing a pie to the Brooklyn military base where he’d delivered many times previously. The soldiers who called ICE kept the pizza before calling to report him.

“The American dream is shattered when (Villavicencio) went from delivery to detention,” said Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. “That is unimaginable. … We want this gentleman home. We want Pablo back with his family.”

According to the detainee’s wife Sandra Chica, her husband is locked up in a New Jersey detention facility and looking at deportation next week.

Villavicencio had filed for a green card and permanent U.S. residency based on his marriage to an American citizen. His daughters, clutching baby dolls, joined Chica and the politicians in calling for the family patriarch’s freedom.

“In one day, your life changes,” said Chica, 38. “It’s cruel that they separated my daughters from him. He was supporting the family. Now I’m going to be alone with these two babies.”

An email to ICE seeking comment on the case was not returned Wednesday.

A weeping Villavicencio, speaking by speaker phone, said he was a taxpayer who had delivered pizzas to the Brooklyn base without issues previously. Though he carried a valid New York City ID card, soldiers at the base initially gave him some grief before calling ICE to take him away.

“They treated me like a criminal, and I haven’t committed a crime,” he said. “My daughters need me, and my wife needs me … It’s a horrible thing.”

According to Chica, their two small girls are wondering when their daddy is coming home.

“They’re always asking me,” she said. “So many days and nights have passed, and their father doesn’t arrive.”
