PRESS RELEASE 
BI agents nab rowdy American in Cebu
Bureau of Immigration (BI) agents arrested in Cebu over the weekend an overstaying American who is the subject of numerous complaints from residents in his neighborhood for allegedly being an undesirable alien.
In a statement, Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente identified the American as 67-year-old Sunny Miller, who was arrested in Bgy. Punta, San Remigio, Cebu by operatives from the BI Intelligence Division. 
Morente said he issued a mission order for Miller’s arrest after the BI received a complaint from barangay officials who accused him of causing trouble, and committing acts that disturbed the peace and threaten the lives of residents in the community.
“The complainants also alleged that he has been engaging in gainful business activities without the appropriate permit and visa in blatant violation of our immigration laws,” Morente added.
The BI Chief said Miller will be slapped with a deportation case by immigration prosecutors prior to the issuance of an order for his deportation by the BI board of commissioners.
According to BI Intelligence Chief Fortunato Manahan Jr., Miller’s stay in the country already lapsed, making him an overstaying alien who may be subjected to summary deportation.
Manahan said the complainants accused Miller of resorting to harassment and intimidation, and that he allegedly occupied a land in the coastal area of the barrio which deprived fisherfolk from using the property to engage in fishing and other livelihood activities.
Manahan also bared that barangay officials in Punta also passed a resolution declaring him persona non grata for acts that are contrary to morals, good customs and public policy.
The American is presently detained at the BI’s holding facility in Cebu while undergoing deportation proceedings.

Here's an update

Cebu town residents want American deported for boorish behavior towards them

CEBU CITY – A group of residents in San Remigio, Cebu is asking authorities to deport an American for his alleged unruly behavior.

Residents of Barangay Punta accused Sunny Miller of harassing them ever since he arrived in 2018.

Miller, 64, of Michigan, was arrested by the Intelligence Division of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) last May based on the complaints of the residents.

The BI later discovered that Miller has been overstaying in the country. Miller was deported following his arrest but residents were surprised to see him returning to their place last June.

Prior to his deportation, the barangay council, in its session on July 16, 2021, declared the American persona non grata after residents filed a petition against him.

Last Sunday, 62 households representing 100 individuals gathered in an area near the American’s house to express their sentiments.

The residents questioned the return of the American after they suffered abuses in his hands.

According to the residents, the American claimed to own a 4,000-square meter lot in a coastal area. The residents claimed the American could not present documents to prove his ownership of the lot.

The residents said the lot that the American is claiming ownership of is owned by one Marlene del Gallego.

After the American built his house in their area, they were no longer allowed to pass in what they said a public road. The residents said they had no trouble using the road leading to their houses for years.
Before his deportation, the American padlocked the gate and residents could no longer pass through the road.

“When my husband died, we had to lift his coffin over the gate so we could just pass. He would not allow that the gate be opened for us to pass,” an elderly resident said.

The residents were also not allowed to swim in the sea fronting the American’s supposed property. “There was a time when he threw stones at children swimming in front of his property,” a female resident said.

Another resident said he had an encounter with the American after he was confronted while he was in the shore. “He was holding a bladed weapon so I struck him with a piece of wood,” the resident said.

There was also an incident when a fisherman was left bloodied after a physical confrontation with the American. “He accused me of being a thief,” the resident said.

In a document obtained by the Manila Bulletin, one Michelle del Gallego-Ngo wrote then BI Commissioner Jaime Morente to seek help regarding Miller’s presence in their property.

“This person is squatting on our property and being a nuisance to the residents in the area,” Michelle’s letter said.

Miller did not face reporters who went to his house to get his comment on the accusations hurled against him. Some household members told reporters to just talk to the foreigner’s lawyer.

So business as usual, except he is an arrogant foreigner instead of a rich Filipino acting that way.

This has his side of the story.

CEBU, Philippines — Some residents of Barangay Punta, San Remigio town in Cebu have questioned why an “undesirable alien” who was earlier arrested is back to their community.

One of the complainants, Monalisa Jarque, told the Bureau of Immigration that just when they thought the bureau has enforced its duty for the protection of fellow Filipinos by apprehending Sunny Miller, an American tourist, was earlier arrested for summary deportation on May 26, 2022. He was charged with three grave acts which provide no bail and was released less than a month. Now, he is back at the same barangay.

Jarque, in her letter, prayed that Miller’s bail be revoked, that a mission order be immediately granted to apprehend him once again and send him back to BI office in Bicutan, and that his deportation be processed immediately, so that peace and order will be restored in the community.

A Bureau of Immigration-Cebu officer, who requested not to be named but privy to the case, said that Miller was ordered released by BI Commissioner Jaime Morente after the latter posted a P50,000 bail.

“Due to health reasons,” said the officer when asked why he was allowed to post bail.

The officer, however, added that Miller was ordered to report to their office in BI in Bicutan every first Monday and Wednesday of the month.

“As far as I know, ni file og motion ang iyang lawyer nga anhi lang siya pa reporton sa BI-Cebu. As of now, we received no order from the commissioner nga ari siya sa Cebu mo report,” the officer said.

Another complainant, Michelle del Gallego-Ngo, wrote a letter to BI stating that Miller's apprehension was much celebrated by the residents who long suffered under his fear-mongering.

She questioned why the bail was granted and Miller ordered released on the premise that the charges are serious since they involve acts against the community, especially the fisherfolks.

“What happened to the protection of the public at the very least, discounting the plight of the Filipinos who have suffered at the hands of this foreigner? He has no reason to be released roaming around our country given his undesirability, his overstaying and his blatant disregard of the limits of his tourist visa where he decided to work and/or operate his so-called corporation,” said Ngo.

Ngo added that there is a need to immediately resolve the deportation proceedings against Miller.

Complainants Alfredo Arcipe and Francisco Arcipe have also filed a petition for deportation against Miller on August 17, 2021 saying that “his continued presence here in the Philippines could affect not only the residents of Punta, San Remigio, Cebu but also wherever in the country he may stay. Thus, the present petition to remove him from the Philippines in order to prevent any more damage to Filipinos”.

In a previous press statement, Commissioner Morente ordered the BI-Cebu agents the arrest of Miller, an overstaying American who was the subject of numerous complaints from residents in his neighborhood for allegedly being an undesirable alien.

Morente said he issued a mission order for Miller’s arrest after the BI received a complaint from barangay officials who accused him of causing trouble, and committing acts that disturbed the peace and threaten the lives of residents in the community.

“The complainants also alleged that he has been engaging in gainful business activities without the appropriate permit and visa in blatant violation of our immigration laws,” Morente added.

The BI Chief said Miller will be slapped with a deportation case by immigration prosecutors prior to the issuance of an order for his deportation by the BI board of commissioners.

According to BI Intelligence Chief Fortunato Manahan Jr., Miller’s stay in the country already lapsed, making him an overstaying alien who may be subjected to summary deportation.

Manahan said the complainants accused Miller of resorting to harassment and intimidation, and that he allegedly occupied a land in the coastal area of the barrio which deprived fisherfolk from using the property to engage in fishing and other livelihood activities

It would be curious to know the truth.

If what Mr. Miller says is true it's unlikely he will find an equitable solution.

Unfortunately, the truth isn't all that important.  Not only the case here, but it's all about being able to live and let live as best we can.

Right or wrong about the property. He should of been kind to thy neighbor. Lifting a coffin over the gate he won't unlock. A bit extreme in my opinion
