ICE Detained a Man Taking His Pregnant Wife to the Hospital

Customs Enforcement agents leave the Yamato Engine Specialist plant in Bellingham Washington after raiding the plant for illegal immigrants Feb. 24 2009

Joel Arrona-Lara, 36, was driving his wife to a hospital in San Bernardino, California, on Wednesday when he stopped for gas.

But on Saturday, ICE told CBS Los Angeles Arrona-Lara was picked up because he is wanted by law enforcement authorities in Mexico on an outstanding homicide warrant. ICE stated that the Executive Office for Immigration Review has begun removal proceedings.

According to The Washington Post, Haley didn't say whether the arresting ICE agents considered delaying Arrona's arrest until after the birth or if they could have escorted Venegas to the hospital, given her condition.

Some stories included - albeit buried deep in the story - that ICE arrested Arrona-Lara on charges of murder out of Mexico while others ignored the key detail.

A California woman has said she had to drive herself to the hospital and give birth without her husband after he was detained by immigration agents. They do not have legal authorization to live in the U.S. but all five of their children are United States citizens, she said.

"She said to help her tell the judge that [Arrona-Lara] is a good man ... that he needs to be back here with his family because his family needs him", said a young boy.

Arrona Lara has never been in trouble with the law, she said.

An immigrant in the US illegally who was detained by federal immigration officers in San Bernardino this week while he was driving his pregnant wife to the hospital had an outstanding warrant for his arrest in Mexico on homicide charges, authorities said Saturday.

"They left her at the gas station to fend for herself", the couple's legal representative told NBC. They do not have legal authorization to live in the US, she said.

She said she complied with the agents' request for identification. The surveillance footage shows the agents handcuffing the 35-year-old Arrona and taking him away, leaving a sobbing Venegas alone at the gas station.

Garcia said Venegas remains in the hospital.

She had her baby boy, the couple's fifth child, on Friday, García said.

Arrona, however, had left home "in a hurry", according to his attorney, Emilio Amaya García, so he was unable to present ID. "He had to wait for his son for so long, and someone just took him away".

Lori Haley, again speaking on behalf of ICE, said yesterday, "ICE continues to focus its enforcement resources on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security ... All of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States". The lawyer also accused ICE of endangering the lives of the mother and the child.
