Demonstrators arrested during protest over a woman's deportation

Garcia was ordered deported during an immigration check on Wednesday.

Trump's recent executive order prioritizes deporting undocumented workers who have committed chargeable criminal offenses, including using a fake Social Security number. President Trump is tearing families apart, undermining public safety and will ultimately hurt our economy.

Protestors blocked the van that was carrying Rayos and taking her to the border.

Police posted on Twitter that they arrested about seven protesters, but added that the demonstration was mainly peaceful.

Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos is seen locked in a van on February 8, 2017, outside ICE headquarters in Phoenix. She was detained and within 24 hours she was deported to her native Mexico.

"I'd ask him 'why he would want to take her from me?' She hasn't done anything wrong and I'm not scared of him", said Garcia's daughter Jaqueline, of what she would ask President Trump if she could.

Her 16-year-old son Angel said: "She's always there for me. There's no waiver she can submit", Maldonado said. She was married there, worked there, and raised a family there. "She hasn't done anything to harm anyone".

Garcia de Rayos's children were born in the United States and they remain there with her husband.

Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos was taken into custody on Wednesday and deported to Mexico on Thursday.

"The case of Mrs. [Guadalupe] Garcia de Rayos illustrates the new reality that the Mexican community faces in the United States due to the more severe application of immigration control measures", the statement reads.

Garcia de Rayos might be the first undocumented immigrant arrested during a meeting with immigration officials since Trump took office, lawyers from civil rights groups told The New York Times.

Trump campaigned on a promise to reform the US immigration system and secure the border with Mexico, a country he accused of sending its "most unwanted people into the United States", including drug dealers and rapists.

Later, speaking at the shelter, Jacqueline said: "We don't deserve to go through this; no family deserves to go through this". "This is where we formed our lives and this is where our children were born".

Garcia de Rayos, CNN reported, was arrested in 2008 during a workplace raid and was convicted one year later of criminal impersonation - a felony charge in Arizona.

After spending six months in jail, she was released. In past visits, she answered questions that were put to her and went home. She never had a problem until now.

An immigrant mother in Phoenix granted leniency during the Obama administration was deported to Mexico on Thursday in what activists said was an early example of how President Trump plans to carry through on his vow to crack down on illegal immigration.

Maldonado reportedly submitted a request for a stay on her deportation, but ICE did not say anything about the request or the timing for her deportation.

"ICE did what the laws and the procedures of the immigration laws of this country have prescribed for it before any immigration, or any executive order", said Sen.
