Phoenix, Arizona, Protesters Fear Mom's Deportation After 21 Years

That means ICE could have made a decision to ignore the priorities and deport her before anyway. But in 2008, she and several other employees who worked at a water park in Mesa, Arizona were arrested on suspicion of identity theft and using forged documents in order to gain employment. "(Her) immigration case underwent review at multiple levels of the immigration court system, including the Board of Immigration Appeals, and the judges held she did not have a legal basis to remain in the U.S".

Crowds, chanting, "No one is illegal", gathered outside the ICE headquarters all afternoon and evening to protest against her detention.

"Rather than tracking down violent criminals and drug dealers, ICE is spending its energy deporting a woman with two American children who has lived here for more than two decades and poses a threat to nobody", he said.

The ministry also noted that the Mexican government, its embassy in the USA and the consular network there would "continue to provide assistance and protection to all Mexicans who require it regardless of their immigration status". After each meeting, the married mother of two went back to her family. She has been in the United States, according to the New York Times, since the age of 14, when she came into the country illegally. President Donald Trump, during his election campaign, promised to deport all undocumented immigrants, then softened his rhetoric, saying he first intends to focus on criminals.

In 2013, an immigration judge found Garcia de Rayos had no legal stance to remain in the USA and issued a voluntary departure instructing her to leave the country, Ybarra-Maldonado said.

About seven people were arrested during the protest, according to Phoenix police.

They were all eager to praise former President Barack Obama for allowing her to stay illegally despite her status.

"Lawyers from two of the nation's leading civil rights' groups said Ms. Rayos might be the first undocumented immigrant to be arrested during a scheduled meeting with immigration officials since Mr. Trump took office".

The protesters said they initially succeeded in stopping the vehicles from leaving, but said they later left the grounds by another exit, the The Associated Press said. Garcia de Rayos' husband and 14-year-old daughter joined protesters outside ICE office.

This time, according to her attorney, Ray Ybarra-Maldonado, the Mexican consulate informed him that Garcia de Rayos, whose two children were born in the US, was deported to Nogales, Sonora, on Thursday.

Protesters surround a van at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Phoenix, Arizona, on Wednesday night. Advocates say her arrest signals a clear shift by the Trump administration to deport people considered a "low priority" for removal under President Obama.

Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration studies, which supports Trump's immigration policies, agreed that ICE may have been responding to the executive order, "which returns a great deal of discretion to ICE officers in the field to enforce immigration laws as they were written".

What Trump's executive order has done is to is put in place rules that punish everyone but criminals.

Trump's executive order last month expanded border securities to include undocumented immigrants who committed any criminal offense.
