Prayer Vigil Held for Pastor Carias in front of ICE Headquarters in Downtown Los Angeles. Organizations, Public Leaders, Pastors and many more joined together to pray for Pator Caria's Release from Adelanto Detention Center.
Carias, 42, is being held at the Adelanto Detention Facility, in California's high desert, for crossing the border illegally in the 1990s. The Guatemalan native had been trying to correct his immigration status since 2014, and ICE had granted him yearly stays. That ended this year at his most recent ICE check-in, when Carias was informed he would be arrested and deported. Carias is one of the undocumented immigrants the administration of former President Barack Obama considered less of a priority, as ICE officers focused on deporting felons. Under President Donald Trump, the policy has shifted. (CNN)
