Protests broke out last night in Phoenix, Arizona, where immigration officials arrested Guadalupe García de Rayos. She had showed up to check in at the immigration office as she's done regularly for eight years — since she was picked up in a work-place raid for using a fake Social Security Card. Until yesterday, it was just a formality; she's been allowed to leave. This time was different, and today, she was deported. Daniel González, who covers immigration, Latino issues and minority communities for the Arizona Republic, has been following the story.
