WATCH: Woman Complains That ICE is Deporting Illegal Aliens

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities family feels they’re paying a huge price for standing up for immigrants’ rights.

Last month, Luis Candela Gonzalez was taken into custody. His attorney says Candela came to the U.S. illegally, but they believe he was targeted for arrest because his wife Sandra was featured in a newspaper article last month, standing up for immigrants’ rights.

ICE tells us they make arrests based on the threat someone is to security. Luis Candela’s attorney says he did enter the country illegally, the father of three is not a threatening person.

The phone is the only way this couple of 16 years connects these days. A saga that was detailed in this 6 minute documentary that’s been viewed 26,000 times.
