Illegal Alien Arrested, Deported Protesting Outside Phoenix ICE Office

Bookmark and Share

From Robin of We the People Rising California's Crusader

"The NotOneMoreDeportation website states that an illegal alien, Jaime Valdez Reyes, was deported after protesting in front of an ICE detention center in Phoenix.

Members of NotOneMoreDeportation are outraged that a PROTESTING illegal alien in front of an ICE detention center was actually deported. Of course, this should be the norm, not the exception...

It is admitted, in the letter below, that he has a DUI."

Jaime Valdez-Reyes

To: John Sandweg, Action ICE Director; Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, National ICE Public Advocate

I am writing to ask that you allow Jaime Arturo Valdez Reyes (A#201288309) be returned to the United States, after he was deported unfairly. On the night of February 24th, Mr. Valdez Reyes was deported without notice to his attorney or to his family, and while he has a pending appeal in the 9th circuit court. Jaime’s only charges are for one DUI. He made a small mistake and served his time. He should not also be facing separation from his family for the minor charge.

Jaime’s parents both live in Phoenix. Jaime’s fiancee, Berenice, is a U.S. citizen. Jaime’s family has already suffered enough from deportation. His brother was killed when he returned to Mexico. Jaime’s parents are terrified that their only living son will also die if he remains deported.

I ask that you immediately allow Jaime to return to his family.

I await your response.


The path has not been easy. On the night of February 24th, Jaime Valdez-Reyes, one of the hunger strike participants was deported to Mexico. He was removed as punishment for defending his civil rights.

Meanwhile, the Phoenix police outside removed the family members outside, and arrested two Arizona activists, Carlos Garcia from Puente, and Erika Andiola from DRM Dream Action Coalition.

The families and hunger strikers returned to the ICE offices the next morning, and they have been there ever since. Carlos and Erika were released by the police the next day, and have both said that what is important is to continue to fight for the release of those inside detention, and to ask ICE to bring Jaime back.

Unfortunately,our administration has not followed America's immigration laws. This has resulted in many people who are here illegally thinking that if they have been here for a while, and "set down roots," then they should not be deported. Our country, like every viable country has immigration laws! We can't let people come and go at THEIR will and still consider ourselves a country. I personally believe that people who have come here illegally should be deported, REGARDLESS of whether they have committed other crimes! They aren't suppose to be here! Our resourses are for OUR people here in America, and we owe illegal aliens NOTHING! My condolences for the GREAT misunderstanding to the "...not one more!" crowd...America isn't Disneyland!

I believe that you are mistaken about Jaime being with the hunger strikers outside of the Phoenix ICE headquarters. His father was one of the hunger strikers outside of Phoenix ICE and was striking because Jaime had been in detention and was awaiting news on his appeal. Jaimie was deported in spite of that appeal. (Yay ICE!!!) However, one of the detainees in Eloy was released after 13 months... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=741823195842533&set=a.137253172966208.20604.111467578878101&type=1&theater (BOO!!!)

Here's is their version of what happened... http://youtu.be/nj4rjbwwAgU The police gave them a warning during the afternoon telling them to leave. I took video of the police telling them to leave... http://youtu.be/oaddzZ015pg At first they started folding up chairs and packing up but then they started moving across the street... http://youtu.be/UQ8eRjZxzOg and http://youtu.be/I4aiUaWJCb8 Their lawyer showed up and the next thing I heard was they were still there... until the police finally raided them and tore up their little camp and took it away.
