Sources with Immigrations and Customers Enforcement (ICE) have indicated David DePape, the man accused of assaulting Paul Pelosi with a hammer, is an illegal immigrant.
Sources cited both by Fox News and the New York Post state DePape had illegal status due to overstaying his visa.
He was reportedly born in Canada and emigrated to the U.S. about 20 years ago.
The Post notes that he obtained a social security number with a job in 2001, though there is no indication of how long he remained in the United States past the legal threshold.

The media have spent much of the time following the attack on Paul Pelosi portraying him as a right-wing conspiracy theorist (something that may ultimately prove true) but have downplayed his status as an illegal immigrant.
Any journalist with an ounce of integrity would add a question regarding DePape’s illegal status to their arsenal, especially in light of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s stance on illegal immigration and the fact that the couple lives in the sanctuary city of San Francisco.
Paul Pelosi was the victim of a heinous assault inside his San Francisco home after DePape reportedly broke in the Speaker’s home. He reportedly was seeking the Democrat congresswoman to hold her hostage and break “her kneecaps” if he caught her lying.
DePape, aside from being an illegal immigrant, now faces charges of assault and attempted kidnapping involving the family of a federal official.
He faces up to 50 years in prison according to a statement by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California.
RELATED: Pelosi Says Every Illegal Immigrant Has ‘Dignity and Worth’
It’s time for journalists to start lining up some hard-hitting questions for the Speaker of the House. Mainly – Does she still believe that all illegal immigrants have “dignity and worth”?
At a press gathering in 2019, Mrs. Pelosi invoked religion as a means of protecting the worth of an illegal immigrant, all of whom supposedly “have a spark of divinity.”
At the time she was referencing former President Donald Trump’s insistence on securing the border as being “not consistent with our faith, with our belief that every person has — has dignity and worth, that every person has a spark of divinity within them that we need to respect.”
The California Democrat came to the defense of MS-13 gang members when Trump referred to them correctly as “animals.”
“There is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person,” Pelosi said.
Will she be able to find that spark of divinity with DePape after he assaulted her husband?

We need a few more illegals to clean things up in this country because the Democrats certainly are not.
Looks like the chickens have come home to roost – you support illegal immigration – this is what you get – unfortunately, so do many other Americans who didn't support illegal immigration but got it anyway – you might consider changing your position on illegal immigration
Wow! Just what I expected. Someone with dark brown skin, non-English speaking, and from a sithhole country. No? Gee, if he had been brown and overstayed his visa, ICE would have been all over him. However...
This story stinks like an outhouse in july. Since when did the 3rd in line of succession for president not have Private or Government protection at their home? Obvious Propaganda value to the far left.
Why was this guy in his underwear in the first place? Also, Trump was called everything but human for deporting illegal aliens, so why is it ok for Nancy to allow this guy to be deported?
Wow, I'm glad this is just the writers opinion. The day after the attack local News quoting the Police, stated there were" no sign of a break in. Pelosi in his 911 call stated the Attacker was " his friend David ". They also reported emergency personnel were given entrance to the home by a third " unidentified " person, and that both Pelosi and the attacker were in their underware at the time. Now comes the typical Democratic party Propaganda Machine twist, and damage control, articles!
This whole store is rotten bologna and everyone knows it. A love affair gone wrong and Nincumpoop is so embarrassed she won't even make a statement. So much for her love of LGBTQ community.
When it comes down to "the heat of the moment" (sex) does being an illegal even matter? I think depape was either brought home by paul or invited by paul. Both the pelosie's (paul and nancy) have a severe alcohol problem - this time paul got hammered!
"Any reporter with an oz of integrity"...You just eliminated every Democrat Reporter in America.
Mrs Pelosi, well, how come you have no proper feelings for Donald Trump? Seems you only say what you think people would want to hear. You have not displayed or shown any respect towards Mr Trump..... you're full of double standards.
