Groups Protest Undocumented Mom’s Deportation to Mexico

LOS ANGELES – Activists blasted immigration authorities on Thursday for deporting a mother of two U.S.-born children.

Blanca Cardenas, an undocumented Mexican national married to a U.S. citizen, was arrested by Los Angeles Police Department officers on Feb. 22 when she resisted eviction from the North Hollywood home where the family had resided for eight years.

The lender foreclosed on the home and sold it to another party after the couple stopped paying their mortgage, but Blanca Cardenas said she and her husband had obtained an injunction against the eviction.

The LAPD arrested Cardenas on a trespassing charge.

Once in custody, her fingerprints and personal data were checked against the Immigration and Customs Service database under the Secure Communities program. The search revealed that she had been deported in 2002.

Blanca Cardenas was turned over to ICE, which deported her to Tijuana, Mexico, late Wednesday, according to Javier Rodriguez, representative of the Los Angeles-based Dec. 12 Boycott Coalition.

“She is a ‘low priority’ undocumented immigration. Mother of two U.S. children, one of them 19 months old, married to a (U.S.) citizen and without a criminal record,” Rodriguez said, alluding to new ICE guidelines that prioritize deportation of criminals and people who pose a security risk.

The Dec. 12 group and other organizations, including the TransNational Mexican Brotherhood and Occupy LA, are planning to protest Cardenas’ deportation at a March 10 event in downtown Los Angeles, Rodriguez said. EFE
