SAN BERNARDINO (CBSLA) — A newborn is without his father Friday after immigration agents detained the man as he was taking his wife to deliver the baby.

“I feel very bad right now,” Maria del Carmen Venegas told CBS2 News in Spanish as she held her baby boy while still in her hospital gown.

Her husband Joel Arrona was driving his wife to the hospital for a scheduled Cesarean section Wednesday afternoon when they had to stop to get gas. That’s when their car was approached by two SUVs. Maria said they were officers with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The article goes on to state the following:

Maria said the family is working on hiring an attorney to get Arrona released.

ICE made the following statement to another media outlet Friday evening.

“Mr. Arrona-Lara, a citizen of Mexico illegally residing in the United States, was taken into custody Wednesday by ICE Fugitive Operations Team officers in San Bernardino, Calif. Mr. Arrona-Lara is currently in ICE custody pending removal proceedings with the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR).

  1. Let’s get this straight. The baby was to be delivered to Ceres cesarean, so, the mother WAS NOT in labor.
    If the baby is born in the U.S. it becomes an ANCHOR BABY.
    ICE agents were doing their jobs.
    Make the mother have the baby in Mexico!!!

  2. If this is supposed to generate sympathy, she was probably also here illegally so if she wants to be with her husband the choice seems simple. Rather than trying to get her husband back from Mexico, she can go back to Mexico. I hear Mexico is lovely this time of year.

    • Richard I agree 💯 with you I don’t understand WHY they come here and remain illegal ,it’s wrong so they both need to go back to their home land ,or do what they need to do to be legal ,JUST THAT SUMPLE !!!!

  3. Exactly….they need to take their buttocks back where they came from and the US needs to strip the citizenship from all these anchor babies. What idiots in Congress allowed that bill to pass anyway?

  4. Agree with previous,
    She can easily go back to Mexico and have the baby with family present, like her relatives did for centuries,
    It’s a simple solution don’t let the emotions get in the way of the facts.
    They know that the law had been broken, like any good citizen of any Nation is to follow the laws of that country.
    Adios Amigo

  5. If he had not come here illegally there would have not been a problem. He cause this himself all those years ago when he entered the country illegally. No sympathy here.

  6. NO sympathy coming from me. The chances that this was just a fluke that they found him is slim to none, they must have been looking for him in order to arrest him when and where they did. If she didn’t want to have him taken away then he should’ve come here the legal way. Is she also an illegal alien, if she is then she needs to be deported as well? I don’t care that they have children born here it was their decision to come illegally and they should be deported and take their children with them if they are so concerned about their family being “torn apart”. The adults make these decisions knowing that it will effect their children. I have zero sympathy with this woman’s plight she brought it on herself!

  7. I totally agree with all the above posts. COME HERE LEGALLY and you won’t have this sort of outcome. How hard is that to understand???

  8. hopefully this will put the fear of God into some illegals and they will start to self-deport. But let’s face it, this story is from California.. He will be free in a week. Back to his cushy house with all his welfare benefits ( 5 kids) UGHHHH this makes me sooo annoyed.

  9. No sympathy from me either. They both are probably illegal aliens and need to
    leave our country. Our government needs to change those anchor babies – two
    illegal don’t or should not make a legal one. They came to suck the tit of the American welfare cow. Get the hell out of my country. Come in the proper way and support yourself!, and if you, stay in Mexico.

  10. If the mom is here legally she ought to be able to speak English. If she needs her husband then wait for him in Mexico

  11. They should have arrested the baby machine also! She will probably find another dumb ass to get her knocked again as soon as possible. I hope they take her and that kid to be with her boyfriend it whatever he is.

  12. Said it before and I’ll say it again…They are here ILLEGALLY. I’m not going to have any sympathy for those who break our laws and then just expect sympathy when they get caught. Go have your babies in your own countries! We can’t even take care of our own apparently!

  13. He is wanted in Mexico for murder. They have had 5 children all anchor babies! If you are going to tell a story, get out all the facts!!!
