An immigration board has rejected an appeal from detained Spanish-language reporter Manuel Duran, bringing him closer to deportation back to his native El Salvador, The Commercial Appeal reports. Duran was arrested during a Memphis protest earlier this year and has spent about seven months behind bars. The ruling came from the Board of Immigration Appeals in Falls Church, Virginia. Duran could face deportation by mid-November, but he is now fighting his case at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.
