Protest Planned In National City Over Border Patrol Arrest Of Mother

The U.S. Customs & Border Protection Agency doesn't make immigrants feel great when they do nonsense like this. That's why we need to hold their feet to the fire Video of border agents' arrest of mom in National City sparks outrage

When asked on Twitter for more details about the alleged transnational smuggling organization, the San Diego-area Border Patrol's official account responded that it could not release more details "as this is part of an active investigation".

The arrest took place in the Southern California city near San Diego about one block from a high school, according to The Washington Post.

In a statement, officials said: "Perla Morales-Luna was identified as an organizer for a transnational criminal smuggling organization operating in San Diego". They said she was not a low-level cartel flunky but was "intimately involved" in human smuggling operations, which made her a priority target for agents.

In the video you can hear sounds of her three young daughters, all USA citizens screaming as she was taken away. She has arranged for her sister to care for her three daughters, aged 17, 15 and 12.

Morales-Luna remains in border patrol custody awaiting transfer to I.C.E for deportation.

Mr. Trump has proposed $25 billion to build new and replacement fencing along the U.S. -Mexico border, and to hire more agents and expand technology to stop migrants attempting to sneak in.

National City Councilwoman Alejandra Sotelo-Solis told CBS8 she didn't witness the arrest but later spoke with people close to the family.

Roy is the longest serving serving legislator who got elected from Shella constituency for seven consecutive terms since 1988. He added: "Congress has the wherewithal to create a turnaround in any situation".

Morales-Luna denies being part of a smuggling organization and "has no idea what they're talking about", Moreno said.

He suspects that agents might have deliberately turned the arrest into a "spectacle". One of the officers hands her daughters the keys to their home before driving away with their mother.

"Due to her unwillingness to self-surrender and the fact that she was an illegal alien present in the United States, she was deemed a flight risk, and a targeted enforcement operation was approved for her arrest", the document alleges.

"The video clearly shows (that) the arresting agents carried out their duties appropriately, even when faced with a barrage of insults and confrontational agitators", the memo asserts. Therefore, once she was in custody, agents immediately departed the area.

With her three daughter's watching, the agents pried her grip away and shoved her into a waiting van.
