Police: 7 arrested following protest outside ICE office

- Seven people were reportedly arrested, as protesters gathered outside the Phoenix office for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Wednesday night.

People at the protest were reportedly trying to block a van that is believed to be carrying a woman named Guadalupe Garcia De Rayos. Garcia, who is allegedly an undocumented immigrant and lived in the country for 22 years, is reportedly scheduled to be deported under an executive order issued by Donald Trump.

The protest intensified throughout the night, and a Tactical Response Unit was seen standing alongside the van that is believed to be carrying Garcia. Garcia was reportedly charged with identity theft in 2009. She was reportedly held in an ICE facility for six months, and later released on a fine to her husband.
