Sciota pizzeria owner fights to stop wife's deportation

According to a news report from poconorecord.com, “Of all the pizza joints in all the towns in all the country, the INS walks into his.”

“Now Zekri “Zack” Paputchi, owner of The Old Mill Run Pizzeria in Sciota, is frantically fighting to stop the Immigration and Naturalization Service from deporting his wife, Rukie, who, like Zack, is a native Bulgarian. After nearly 16 years in this country, including 11 in Monroe County, she’s under arrest, lodged in Pike County Jail and facing deportation. And after many years serving pizzas here, after the birth of two children in the United States and despite an unblemished record here, Zack Paputchi faces life as a single father of two, his own legal status still in limbo,” said the story. “A lawyer has filed an emergency petition to stop Rukie’s deportation, which may occur as early as today.”
