Evangelical pastor went to his appointment with ICE and was arrested because he had a deportation order 25 years ago

On Monday July 24, Noe Carias went to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Building in Downtown Los Angeles for his yearly meeting, which he has been doing for years. Unfortunately he was denied stay and was detained by I.C.E. Avance Latino, along with many other organizations were outside the offices in support of Noe Carias. Since 7:30 in the morning the several organizations held a prayer vigil, chants in support of Pastor Noe and a Press Conference. Noe Carias is not a criminal, his only crime was jumping the border illegally around 22 years ago. Noe Carias has been married for 14 years now and has two kids, ages 5 and 6. He is the only one in his family whom is undocumented. We are all devastated from this sad news. Noe Carias is one among thousands who share the same situation.
