The US Visas of Ricardo Alberto and Luis Enrique Martinelli Linares, sons of ex-President  Ricardo Martinelli, arrested in Miami, were to have appeared before a Federal judge on Wednesday afternoon but Thanksgiving preparations delayed the hearing. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement ( ICE ) of the US Department of Homeland Security confirmed their detention.

"Both entered the United States legally, however, their visas were revoked in 2017 and since then they have been illegally in the United States," said ICE, spokesman Bryan Cox.

Prosecutor  Kenia Porcell confirmed the arrest and recalled that both were facing an Interpol red alert.
