Apparently a Woman who has been in the U.S. illegally for years has been arrested by ICE.

Some people think it's an over-kill because she has evidently been getting a pass from ICE when "checking in" several times before.

And we have protesting happening too.

Some are suggesting this could be the first arrest in some new "order" from Trump ?

A real "tearjerker".


Protesters ring ICE in Phoenix: Could woman in custody be the first deported because of Trump's orders?

For four years, federal immigration authorities have given Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos a pass to remain in the U.S. rather than deport her back to Mexico.

That changed Wednesday, when Garcia de Rayos went to check in as usual at the central Phoenix offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Instead of being released, she was taken into custody, while her husband, two children — both U.S.-born citizens — and a group of supporters watched in tears.

And by Wednesday night, her case had become the latest epicenter of the national debate over immigration enforcement. Before midnight, after hours of protests outside the ICE office on North Central Avenue, federal vehicles left the facility, possibly with Garcia de Rayos inside.

I guess she should have started her path to citizenship years ago. Then she would be sitting at home with her family right now.

There is a path to legal citizenship. If you have not put in any effort to try to do this, I have no sympathy for you. There are going to be some hard times ahead, but these people are breaking our laws.

So even under Obama's "felons get deported" rule she should've been deported, and still wasn't.

Meh. She'll be back by St. Patrick's Day.

I had a buddy who was arrested for growing pot, he was doing it for 20 YEARS and they never bothered him.

He should be, like, given a pass because of time or sumptin.

This is exactly the kind of garbage americans are sick of. Everyone wants something from us for nothing or we are prejudice and racists.
You have had "decades" to legalize and didnt? Good riddance. No wonder our taxes are so jacked up, we have to pay for all these people who arent even on the books, then we cant even get any help for ourselves because its all used up helping people who arent even living here leagally.

Given pass after pass after pass and she still failed in all that time to become a citizen. Given chance after chance and still refused to obey the law.
Nope. Sorry. No sympathy.

She committed a felony, stealing someones identity. So although I feel bad for her family, she should be deported.

She should have been deported when she was found guilty in 2013, then her family would have had time to adapt and make decisions by now.

For those who think that she shouldn't be deported because it hurts her family, two questions.

1# Do you shed tears for the person whose identity she stole? What if that person lost their house because of this theft?

2# Shouldn't this argument apply to all crime. "Well you are found guilty of burglary young man, but we can't jail you because it would be creul to remove you from your family".

I am sorry this woman is being punished, but she committed a serious crime and now must face the consequences of her choice.

Not sure why she wouldnt have obtained a green card or become a citizen in that time but theres no denying that this is a sad situation.

Cant be easy to be removed from a place you call home, separated from her husband and kids...

Have a heart man.

Not disputing what either one of you are saying.

I'm saying that regardless of the law, its still a sad situation.

I'd like to hear opinions for people on the other side.
I'd like to see a coherent legal and moral argument that is convincing enough for her to stay.

I do not want to see an argument that is a bunch of fluffy feelings. Lots of people do crimes and are taken away from their family.

She knew she was an illegal with a felony. Anyone who watches the news knows they are going home first. Why was it anyone's job but her own to correct this situation?

All the pain, all the heartache and all the consequences that her family will have to live with are from her own doing.

I'm sure most here find it sad, but she has NO ONE to blame but herself. She caused this, 100%.

having a heart is not an argument.

If people are going to start protesting using that as an argument it means we are very close to an attempt for a socialist revolution.

My heart is going to take a lot of strain to hear this same story 8 million times.

No lefties here yet?
Bitching about the cold-hearted uncaring conservatives?
Vowing their support for an admitted felon?

I am surprised.

Whooops, I missed gladtobehere's post.
