Phoenix, Arizona – On Wednesday, protesters in Phoenix blocked a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) van to stop the deportation of Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, 36, who was convicted for working illegally 8 years ago. In 2009, De Rayos was convicted of a felony for identity theft while working illegally, she served her sentence and reported to ICE in a regular basis.
The protest took place at the Phoenix ICE facility. De Rayos was ordered to report to the ICE facility on Wednesday where she was taken into custody under Trump’s executive order to deport criminal illegal aliens.
ICE in van convoy around 11:10 p.m. transported De Rayos to another facility for deportation. Protesters briefly blocked the van, which DE Rayos was in. De Rayos will be the first deported criminal undocumented immigrant from Phoenix under the Trump executive order. At least 7 protesters were arrested without use of force, according to Phoenix police.
