The Bureau of Immigration (BI) is set to deport an American woman wanted by federal authorities in the United States for contempt of court and defying a court order in a child custody case. Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said fugitive Cyndie Mamuad Mesina, 54, would also be included in the BI’s blacklist and banned from the Philippines. Mesina was arrested on Thursday along Roxas Boulevard, Ermita, Manila, by agents from the BI’s fugitive search unit. Morente said Mesina was already an overstaying alien. She does not possess a valid travel document as confirmed by US authorities. Mesina was turned over to the BI’s detention facility at Camp Bagong Diwa, Taguig City, pending her deportation.
