    Deported mom's kids prepare to face Trump

    Deported mom's kids prepare to face Trump

    Updated 3:43 PM ET, Tue February 28, 2017



    Washington (CNN)Angel and Jacqueline Rayos-Garcia stood side by side outside the US Capitol on Tuesday.

    In a matter of hours, the teenagers plan to be inside, in the same room as the president they blame for their mother's deportation.

    Two Arizona lawmakers invited them to be their guests when President Trump addresses a joint session of Congress.

    The teenagers took their first-ever flight to be here.

    It's been less than three weeks since their mother, 35-year-old Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, was apprehended in Phoenix and deported back to Mexico.

    Today is her birthday.

    "I'm sad that I don't get to spend the day with her," 14-year-old Jacqueline said, "but I'm proud to be here."

    Her 16-year-old brother, Angel, agreed.

    "We're the face of all those people who want to speak out but can't," he said. "So we're here, speaking for them."


    Jacqueline Rayos-Garcia speaking at the US Capitol Tuesday.

    Did Trump's policies spur deportation?

    Garcia de Rayos' case has drawn widespread attention. Protesters in Phoenix attempted to stop her deportation earlier this month by trying to block an Immigration and Customs Enforcement van.

    Her lawyer argues that her deportation was a direct result of Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration, which prioritizes the deportation of undocumented immigrants who are convicted or charged with crimes.

    Garcia de Rayos came illegally to the United States in the mid-1990s with her parents when she was 14. She was arrested in 2008 during a workplace raid and convicted one year later of felony criminal impersonation.

    US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials have said there was nothing special about Garcia de Rayos' case. She committed a crime, was placed under a deportation order, and her time had come, they said.

    She became the subject of a removal order in 2013 and was placed under court-ordered supervision. For years, she reported regularly to a local ICE office -- until this month, when officials took her into custody and deported her.

    Since then she has been living in Acámbaro, in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato.

    Rep. Raul Grijalva and Rep. Ruben Gallego, both Democrats from Arizona, said they are honored to have Garcia de Rayos' children join them at the Capitol for Trump's speech.

    The two teens are courageous for speaking out, Grijalva said in a statement last week.

    "Their example is a bright light of hope for immigrant communities across this country who are fearful that Trump will come for them next," he said. "Their fight is all of our fight, and I am proud to stand side by side with them in opposition to these atrocious policies."

    Taking in their first flight

    Weeks ago, Jacqueline cried before television cameras as she described what it was like to see her mother's face looking out at her through the ICE van window.

    "No one should ever go through the pain of having their mom taken away from them," she said, "or the pain of packing her suitcase."

    On Monday night, she and her brother -- both of whom were born in Arizona -- each carried only a small backpack as they headed to the Phoenix airport for their first airplane flight.

    Their father made signs of the cross over them before they went into the security line.

    That's something the teens say their mother used to do every night. Now, it's become their father's role to bless them before bedtime.

    Angel was impressed by the security scanners at the airport. On the plane, Jacqueline sat in the window seat, gazing at the landscape below.

    She wished her mother were still by her side, taking in the scenery.

    "It's not fair that she's not with us," Jacqueline said.

    They are FREE to go spend time with their mother in Mexico. Sell out, pack up and get out...must not be so sad that they are unwilling to do that.

    People move all the time to be near their parents...whether it is an elderly parent, or new baby, or a sick parent. I have not lived near my family for 40 years...you gotta do what you gotta do!

    No excuse to stay here...go to Mexico.

    DO NOT BRING THIS LYING, IDENTITY STEALING, THEIF BACK INTO OUR COUNTRY. LEAVE HER IN MEXICO.

    IT'S NOT FAIR SHE STOLE SOMEONE'S IDENTITY AND ALSO LEFT US TAXPAYERS ON THE HOOK PAYING FOR HER ANCHOR BABIES.
    TO BECOME AN AMERICAN YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR VALUES ...NOT YOUR LOCATION

    STAY HOME AND BUILD AMERICA ON YOUR SOIL

    The illegal alien anchor babies and the Democrats conveniently leave out the most important facts of the deportation.

    She was not deported because she is just a hard working mom.....

    She was deported because she is a convicted felon.

    She stole a U.S. citizen's social security number and convicted for identity fraud.

    So little girl, your mother is a criminal and yes she did hurt somebody, a U.S. citizen that will spend
    the next 10 years trying to fix her credit and income earnings with the Social Security Administration.

    Your mothers illegal presence in the U.S. was not all about just working hard to raise her anchor babies
    and suck dry the American taxpayers.

    Now she should be charged for child abandonment.

    You are your parents responsibility, not the American taxpayers and you need to go back to Mexico with your
    criminal illegal alien mother.
