M did stop eating while at the Houston Deportation Centre and has returned some 30lb lighter than he set off. He always loses weight when he does an appreciable amount of flying (so much flying to do, so little time to eat...) but 30lb in a short time is rather excessive and he looks positively scrawny. Last Saturday found us in casualty as he was so unwell. He was discharged to rest, drink lots of water and eat small light meals - he has done none of these and is now having difficulty in eating at all. However, little changes and pale, wan and thin as he is he has started to tackle the CAA in an effort to have his licences restored.</p> <p>I gather from the FCO that Houston Deportation Centre described M as being difficult to deal with ....(not so easy to live with sometimes).</p> <p>KK (M's wife)</p>Heading Home to the UK, 16 May 2008 07:34:00 GMTc7306cf9-8c9b-4f2c-8f21-f8b2637dc339:394Kirstie<p>Hello</p> <p>Have received some encouraging news from FCO this afternoon (Thurs.).  M is expected to be home soon. </p> <p>I have had no opportunity to speak to him but I gather that he has telephoned friends in Texas. I am told that he does not sound too well. I was probably correct in my assumption that he would stop eating in a protest re his predicament. </p> <p>Let's see what tomorrow brings. The next post may be by M.</p> <p>KK (M's wife)</p>Nil Information, 12 May 2008 16:26:00 GMTc7306cf9-8c9b-4f2c-8f21-f8b2637dc339:391Kirstie<p>Hello (Monday pm)</p> <p>M's friend travelled to Austin deportation centre to visit m today - M is allowed one person to visit for one hour once a week - Monday between 9am and 1pm.</p> <p>He was not allowed access to M as M is in "segregation"? Our equivalent of solitary confinement, I suppose. </p> <p>On receiving this information I telephoned the consular office in Houston. Perhaps more information can be discovered tomorrow. </p> <p>It may be that he prefers his own company at the moment.</p> <p>I hope that he is not refusing food - he alluded to this when being held at Austin State Hospital and I'm afraid that the conditions that were frustrating him then are now magnified.</p> <p>It would be good to know when he is likely to be back here in GB. I certainly find this somewhat protracted "nil information" time rather difficult, not least because one can only speculate on the true situation.</p> <p>KK (M's wife)</p>Only One Step Up From Jail, 12 May 2008 04:08:00 GMTc7306cf9-8c9b-4f2c-8f21-f8b2637dc339:390Kirstie<p>Good evening (Sunday pm) </p> <p>Still no positive news. I understand that M will be deported, probably within 10 working days if all is straightforward (can any of this be straightforward - none has been so far).</p> <p>I haven't spoken to M for 10 days and hope that he is OK. I suspect that that he's bearing up. I was told that a deportation centre is "one step up from jail". Perhaps he's more comfortable than here at home.  </p> <p>His friends haven't managed to track all his belongings - some appear to be missing including his video records of this trip and his GPS.</p> <p>Hope very much to hear more soon.</p> <p>KK (M's wife) </p>Out of the Frying Pan into a Sink, 07 May 2008 04:42:00 GMTc7306cf9-8c9b-4f2c-8f21-f8b2637dc339:382Kirstie<p>Hello</p> <p>(Wednesday am in GB) </p> <p>M is still being held at a deportation centre at Houston. This is confirmed by consular staff. There is no indication yet of when he will travel to GB, but I hope to hear soon (there is still washing up waiting).</p> <p>I have been told a variety of stories regarding this second detention though a clear common theme is that he was offered the opportunity of release on the condition that he signed papers accepting that he was intoxicated. He maintained that he was not and so would not sign. At this juncture the immigration/deportation system came into play.</p> <p>I have not spoken to M since Thursday and I don't think that consular staff have spoken to him yet. M's friends have been unable to speak to him by telephone as he has no money to buy a ‘phone card - and couldn't be sent any until we could quote his "alien number".  This number was given to me yesterday afternoon.</p> <p>Hopefully, he will be able to make contact soon. He will be pleased to hear that his little aircraft is safe. We are trying to track his belongings, but this is not easy without direct communication.</p> <p>I expect that he is fine. </p> <p>KK (M's wife)</p>Deportation from United States, 06 May 2008 03:50:00 GMTc7306cf9-8c9b-4f2c-8f21-f8b2637dc339:381admin<p>Hello</p> <p>Today I received news of M. I was in contact with the consular office late on Friday. The saga isn't over yet.</p> <p>I was told that he was invited to a restaurant for a beer (probably Thursday evening). He said he was outside sitting on a bench with other people, when he was picked up by the police. (This is in line with the information that I initially received via the FCO on Friday.) </p> <p>Police stated that he had been seen walking around town aimlessly with a gas can.</p> <p>M believes that the secret service traced him to this location by him using his credit card and the public intoxication charge was used to hold him until the Secret Service arrived. Three agents told Maurice he landed on a road near Crawford, and this is the reason for his deportation. Robert Rutt 237(a)(4)(A)(2) of immigration act.</p> <p>As admission you have engaged or at any time after admission were engaged in a criminal activity which endangers public safety or national security. </p> <p>He was given the opportunity for secret service to drive him to the airport for flight to London, and would not be deported. But he did not want the charges on his record for offenses he did not commit. </p> <p>When he refused, they shackled him in hand and ankle cuffs and chains, and taken to Deportation Center in Houston. </p> <p>M wants the media to know about this.</p> <p>KK (M's wife)</p>
