90 Day Fiance‘s Jay Smith has been in ICE custody since early July. And, based on the latest info from sister Ornella “Poochie” Raine Smith, the Jamaican tattooist is still there. The question on many 90 Day Fiance fans’ minds is whether or not Jay is going to get sent back to Jamaica. Will U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement send him packing? What’s the newest news?
90 Day Fiance: Jay Smith Still Locked Up
Recent Cumberland County court records listed Conroy St Christopher Smith (Jay) as out of custody. But, Poochie Smith recently said otherwise.
Jay was released from custody for his violation of protective order charges, but was turned over to immigration. There has been a lot of back and forth on social media over the last few weeks regarding the foreign man’s status in America. Claims on social media suggested Jay Smith was no longer in custody. But, court records showed he was still in custody. Based on the latest tea from his sister, it seems Jay Smith is still in custody.
A big question mark surrounding Jay Smith’s status is where he goes from here. Jay’s friend Kayla O’Brien set up a GoFundMe to help with legal expenses and anything he may have to do to remain on American soil.
The campaign quickly came close to meeting it’s goal and a few days ago, Poochie Smith said they’d be withdrawing the GFM money soon.
Some people reported the fund for violating GFM’s terms of service because users are not allowed to use the service to collect money to pay for legal fees. But there is a loop-hole which allowed Go-Fund-Me to approve the campaign.
Now, Jay Smith’s family says everything is “fine”. Meanwhile, 90 Day Fiance‘s Ashley Martson is adamant Jay will get the boot back to Jamaica.

Recent court documents showed Jay Smith was released by court order. But, there isn’t a date or a time stamp to accompany this.

This back and forth had some 90 Day Fiance fans thinking he was booted back to Jamaica.
In addition, Poochie Smith has been quiet of late online prior to this recent update. This is after spilling boiling hot tea on Ashley Martson in a series of IG posts. Were things under wraps on purpose regarding the Jamaican tattoo artist’s current whereabouts and deportation status?
In the latest update from Poochie Smith, she said her brother is still behind bars and waiting for his bail hearing. Addressing the rumors, she put the deportation speculation to rest. Poochie Smith admitted she purposely avoided answering questions regarding her little brother’s status. But, it seems she decided to put an end to the rumors once and for all.
What Happens to Jay Next?
Things were quiet online in the aftermath of all the tea spilling and mud-slinging that went on. But, it looks like Jay Smith is still in custody – for now. Based on what his sister revealed, 90 Day Fiance followers may need to wait until his upcoming court hearing to learn more.
There’s still no definitive answer on whether or not he will be deported back to his home country. For now, at least, it seems the Jamaican man is still on American soil.
