Seven people were arrested in Phoenix on Wednesday night after protesters blocked an Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) vehicle.

The protest was to stop the detention and deportation of an illegal alien and convicted felon, Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, 36.

A wife and mother of American citizens, Rayos was considered a “low priority” for deportation during the Obama presidency, despite the fact that she had been convicted of felony identity theft in 2008, according to a report from The Los Angeles Times.

Under the Obama administration, having false papers was not serious enough to warrant deportation; all de Rayos had to do was check in with ICE officials every six months following her conviction.

De Rayos learned that the Trump administration would treat her differently when she arrived at the ICE office for her routine check-in.

Instead of being released as usual, she was taken into custody and put into an ICE van.

“Ms. Garcia de Rayos is currently being detained by ICE based on a removal order issued by the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review which became final in May 2013,” according to a statement put out by ICE.

Her husband and son rallied the support of people who went so far as to block the van that she was in. Many were chanting and crying during the protest, which was filmed by Fox News.
