FROM Juan Martinez
High-Profile Mexican Mother of American Boy Deported Last year, Elvira Arellano was convicted of using a false Social Security number to get a job at O'Hare International Airport. Instead of presenting herself for deportation, she sought refuge in Chicago's Adalberto United Methodist Church and began publicly advocating immigration reform that would provide a path to citizenship. This weekend, she came to Los Angeles to speak. Yesterday, as she was leaving the Queen of Angeles Catholic Church, her car was surrounded by 15 or 16 agents of ICE. Last night, she was deported. Juan Martínez is Assistant Dean of the Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, where he heads the Hispanic Church Studies Department.
