Arizona woman deported to Mexico despite complying with immigration officials

Arizona woman deported to Mexico despite complying with immigration officials

Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, who had lived in the USA for 21 years, is possibly the first undocumented person to be deported due to President Donald Trump's recent executive order on immigration.

ICE officials say that Garcia de Rayos is being deported because of a 2013 court order.

According to CNN, Garcia de Rayos, who is 35, the mother of two teenagers, and has been in the us since she was 14, is now being detained by ICE.

Garcia de Rayos was arrested in 2008 by Sheriff Joe Arpaio in a workplace raid targeting undocumented workers with fake papers.

But she was allowed to continue living in Arizona as long as she checked in with her local ICE office in Phoenix every six months, the report adds.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement held Rayos when she went to do her regular check-in with them at their Phoenix headquarters Wednesday. "We all knew something could be different this time with the new administration", Carlos Garcia, director of the immigrant advocacy group Puente Arizona, told the Los Angeles Times. The Republic carried a statement from ICE officials, which said only that she was detained because of her prior conviction.

In the footage, protesters can be seen chanting and shouting as they tried to block the van as they feared the mother was being taken to the border.

Phoenix Police arrived at about 10 riot gear, and reported that they made about seven arrests at the demonstration without incident. "She went in with the lawyer and didn't come out".

In an earlier Thursday press release, ICE said de Rayos was designated for deportation in 2013.

"Lupita has been doing yearly check-ins with ICE and nothing happened", said Lucy Sandoval, an activist who has been working with Rayos's family.

PHOENIX An Arizona mother of two who lived in the United States for more than 20 years was deported to Mexico on Thursday, becoming one of the first to be swept up in the Trump administration's crackdown on illegal immigrants in the United States, her attorney and family said.

But after she was arrested on Wednesday, authorities "began procedures" to send her back to Mexico, according to the New York Times. It lost the case on appeal, but Arpaio disbanded the task force that conducted the raids. And one particular "Guadalupe Garcia" tweet shows the problem with Trump's deportation executive order, and it's heartbreaking. The order states that undocumented immigrants should be deported if they've been charged with any criminal offense.

The 36-year-old's family told NBC station 12 News that she fought the order, which was for a voluntary deportation. "We base that off of our two USA citizen children, the fact that she is a victim of one of Arpaio's raids". The sudden decision to deport Garcia de Rayos seems to be based entirely on Trump's deportation order.
