ICE Arrest of Illegal Immigrant With Likely Intent to Deport Sparks Controversy and, Get This, Protests

To be honest, I think this is #TheResistance -- Bureaucracy League -- creating a Demonstration Model in order to put a bad face on Trump's immigration orders.

The woman arrested is a long-time illegal with a husband and two (legal) children. But she has an arrest record -- a fairly minor thing. She was arrested at an ICE work-site raid. The article doesn't say (Correction: It does say, but way down at the bottom; see Updates below) but I guess she was arrested for working illegally. (Yeah, and then a bit more.)

She reported in to immigration (apparently she had been doing so for a while, and the bureaucrats there were giving her a free pass) and was arrested by ICE.

Like I said, this feels an awful lot like what lawyers call a "test-case," where an agitation group casts its defendant for a morality play they want to stage. They pick the most sympathetic defendant, one who is only barely breaking the law they hope to defeat, and engineer things so that this will be the first prosecution -- and the first loss for the prosecution. And becomes the "face" of the defendant group in the media.

Think I'm crazy?

In anticipation that Garcia de Rayos could be taken into custody, the group Puente Arizona organized a rally outside the Central Avenue offices of ICE earlier Wednesday. The group advocates to stop the deportation of undocumented immigrants.

So this group just happened to rally outside the ICE offices before Garcia de Rayos showed up there. Almost like... oh I don't know, almost as if it was all a stage-managed affair.

Updates: Commenters say she had an arrest record for identity theft -- "criminal impersonation" -- which that AZ Central article actually does mention but very near to the bottom of the article, where they can expect lazy readers like myself, and 90% of the population, to have by then long stopped reading.

They also say she had a deportation order issued against her in 2009 which became final in 2013. I guess Obama's illegal Executive Orders stayed that final deportation order.

Finally, via Twitchy, it seems this woman has now been deported back to Mexico.
