SUPPLIED US officials say Joel Arrona Lara was detained due to an outstanding arrest warrant in a homicide case in Mexico

In a statement released from ICE, the agency claimed that Joel had an outstanding warrant of homicide charges in Mexico against him.

"Mr. Arrona-Lara is now in the custody of ICE pending deportation procedures before the Executive Office of Immigration Review", according to a spokesperson.

Activists were infuriated by the arrest of Arrona-Lara, especially in light of the fact that Venegas had to drive herself to the hospital.

ICE agents tapped on the window of the couple's vehicle and told Arrona-Lara to get out.

Kevin Spacey’s new film makes just $126 at USA box office opening
Director Ridley Scott reshot all of Spacey's scenes in All the Money in the World , replacing him with Christopher Plummer . Hollywood Reporter say the film could struggle to hit $1,000 across the full weekend.

The officers then asked for identification from both Arrona and his wife.

While a couple was hurrying to the hospital to deliver a baby boy, ICE agents arrested the husband, who is allegedly wanted in Mexico on murder charges. According to Amaya, witnesses at the gas station said ICE agents were there when Arrona-Lara's auto pulled up and that the agents seemed to approach the family randomly.

Venegas showed the agents her ID, but said her husband did not have his with him.

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

"[I asked], 'Why are you taking my husband?' and they said somebody had reported us. He had to wait for his son for so long, and someone just took him away".

"Mr. Arrona denies any criminal history in Mexico and he is unaware of any criminal proceedings in Mexico in which he is named as a defendant", the legal team said in a statement.

She told Univision that her husband had never been in trouble with law enforcement. They do not have legal authorization to live in the USA but all five of their children are United States citizens, she said.

Though the Ice Fugitive Operations Team prioritizes arresting immigrants who are transnational gang members, child sex offenders and those with previous convictions for violent crimes, the agency's statement said it "will no longer exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement". "All those who violate immigration laws would be subject to an immigration arrest and, if a final order determines their removal, be deported from the United States". In April 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered federal prosecutors on the US-Mexico border to adopt a "zero tolerance" policy towards undocumented immigration, a hardline approach that lead to the separation of thousands of families.

But the family's lawyer, Emilio Amaya of the Community Services Center of San Bernardino, says he has been unable to find any legal proceedings against his client in Mexico. The couple has five children who were all born in the US, and thus have been rewarded with birthright citizenship despite their parents not having come to the country legally.
