  • Activists Seek To Halt Deportation Of Man Detained By ICE While Dropping Daughters At School

Avelica-Gonzalez, who has three other children besides the daughter he was driving that day, has two criminal convictions on his record from years ago, MacLean told the Daily News. This week, Avelica-Gonzalez was picked up by ICE officials while dropping his daughters off at school in Pasadena, California, for a decade old DUI conviction.

A heartbroken 13-year-old girl wept uncontrollably as she recorded customs agents handcuffing her father and taking him away in a black auto. Mirales told KABC. "We want to be able to find resources to help this family go through this process".

ICE officials are also using dubious new tactics in the attempt to detain undocumented immigrants.

Rómulo Avelica-González, 48, had dropped his 13-year-old daughter at school on Tuesday when he was pulled over by immigration agents while his wife and 12-year-old daughter were still in the vehicle, advocacy group NDLON says. Once he pulled over, two cars surrounded his truck and arrested him. Trump's administration, on the other hand, has reportedly been deporting undocumented immigrants with and without criminal records. "It would impact us horribly".

Mr Avelica-Gonzalez is reportedly being deported to Mexico because of a DUI conviction, which dates from nearly 10 years ago. "It's awful to feel and see your family being broken apart".

It follows months of splintering relations culminating a row over a botched renewable heating initiative. Irish nationalists support a united Ireland, and want a "border poll" on unification.

ICE spokesperson Virginia Kice confirmed to ABC News that officers with one of the agency's Los Angeles-based fugitive operations teams took Avelica-Gonzalez into custody during a vehicle stop Tuesday morning. "And how do we move forward?'" Mireles told KABC.

Ricardo Mirales, the executive director of the girl's school said the school community would try to help.

"Everybody on November 9 was afraid", Mireles told LAist". He is still reportedly being held in a detention facility outside Los Angeles, but NDLON is petitioning for his release, and protesters are demonstrating outside the facility.

In the video police tell the family that they will help get their auto home as Avelica-Gonzalez's wife does not drive.

"
If widespread immigration violence exists in our nation, it is committed by the hands of ICE who commit violence by taking away fathers, mothers, never to be seen again", Lopez said. "He ask [s] you do not deport him".
