‘Authorities eventually released her on Wednesday after she spent a month in detention, Hiba Ghalib, her attorney, told The Huffington Post’.
“She was sleeping on a hard floor with no blankets. There were roaches everywhere,” her attorney said’.
‘Elizabeth Hernandez-Carrillo was at home in Lilburn, Georgia last month when Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents stormed her building and arrested her in a raid, locking her in a detention center with the intention of deporting her to Mexico’.
‘But she insists she’s a U.S. citizen, even though she’s faced a deportation order for several years’.
- ‘She was born in Mexico and moved to the U.S. with her mother and stepfather ? a U.S. citizen ? when she was 10 years old, Ghalib said’.
- ‘Up until recently, Hernandez-Carrillo assumed she would remain a permanent resident through her stepfather, who legally adopted her after he married her mom’.
- ‘But she eventually discovered that her birth father was actually a citizen himself, making her eligible for citizenship’.
