Accused Paul Pelosi attacker was in US illegally on overstayed visa: sources
The man accused of attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband with a hammer was in the country illegally, ICE sources told The Post Monday.
David DePape, who was hit with federal and local charges Monday in the violent attack on 82-year-old Paul Pelosi, was in the US illegally because he overstayed his visa, according to sources.
The 42-year-old suspect was born in Canada in 1980 and was in the US as early as 2001, sources said, citing his valid Social Security number, which can only be obtained with a job.
The Social Security number was obtained in Hawaii, sources said. It’s unclear how long DePape stayed in the country past the legal threshold.
DePape faces charges from the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and other criminal counts. He was also charged federally with attempted kidnapping and assault.
