CJFE is concerned by the news of further delays in the immigration case of Emilio Gutiérrez Soto, a Mexican journalist now living in New Mexico, and one of the winners of CJFE's 2010 International Press Freedom Awards.

The Texas Tribune reports that the hearing has been postponed until May 2012 after Gutiérrez's lawyer, Carlos Spector, was subpoenaed to appear in another case causing a conflict with the scheduled hearing. Gutiérrez has been seeking asylum since he was forced to flee Mexico with his son in 2008.
