    Illegal alien who sued Maryland county for wrongful arrest detained by ICE

    A prominent Maryland immigration activist -- who lives in the United States illegally -- was detained Tuesday by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents despite a court order allowing her to remain in the U.S., her attorneys say.

    Roxana Orellana Santos, who successfully sued Maryland’s Frederick County in 2009, was detained during a routine immigration check-in with Baltimore officials.

    Attorney Nick Katz told the Frederick News-Post that Santos has been attending routine check-ins with the immigration enforcement agency since an arrest more than a decade ago.

    Katz said the agency has refused to release Santos despite her scheduled appearance in court next week in connection with her civil case against Frederick County.


    “Roxana feels she belongs here,” Katz said. “She’s away from her children...She has a case pending with the Board of Immigration Appeals. They could deport her today before that case is heard.”



    Political pundits and late-night comedians may mock them but 'walls work,' says Jason Piccolo, former special agent and supervisor with the Department of Homeland Security.



    Santos was arrested in 2008 while sitting on a curb eating lunch after Frederick County sheriff’s deputies asked to see her identification. She gave them an identification card from El Salvador and was arrested on an outstanding immigration warrant related to her failing to show up to court after crossing into the country illegally years before, the Baltimore Sun reported.

    She filed a civil rights lawsuit against the county, arguing they had violated her rights by subjecting her to unreasonable searches and seizures, the newspaper reported.


    In 2013, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 4th Circuit determined Santos’ Fourth Amendment right to reasonable searches and seizures had been violated by the sheriff’s department. The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear the case.


    According to the Frederick News-Post, Santos is scheduled to appear at a mediation hearing related to the lawsuit.

    “We presented that information to the ICE agents. They disregarded that,” attorney Jose Perez told the newspaper. “We will do everything within our power to correct this travesty. There was no reason to take Roxana into custody.”


    On Tuesday, activists with CASA de Maryland staged a protest outside the federal building in Baltimore. Four people were arrested and issued citations for allegedly blocking a roadway.

    Deport her today...WE do not care about her "feelings". Her family is free to go with her.

    She is a criminal trespassing illegal alien, a foreign citizen, who broke our laws and worked under false documents!

    These illegals are not stupid...they know they have to show up in court.

    The "I didn't know" excuse does not fly anymore. She KNEW exactly what she was doing.

    Her domestic abuse is not our problem either. They are so good at FAKE documents...then change your name, print off your FAKE documents, and go move somewhere else in your country.

    They are liars, cheaters, scammers and criminals!

    BOOT HER OUT WITHOUT A DIME OF OUR MONEY!

    NO MORE LAWSUITS BY THESE SCAM ARTISTS!

    A Salvadoran woman has won a temporary restraining order against U.S. immigration officials after she was unexpectedly detained last week amid mediation for her 2009 civil rights lawsuit in Maryland.

    U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake issued the restraining order Monday, directing the Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement not to remove Roxana Orellana Santos from the United States, according to court records.

    The order does not guarantee her release, but is a “positive first step” toward her release, Santos’ attorney, Nicholas Katz, said Monday.

    Santos’ attorneys filed a habeas corpus petition last week in U.S. District Court in Maryland requesting her release after she was unexpectedly detained Tuesday during a routine check-in with ICE in Baltimore.

    Santos has completed the check-ins with ICE officials since she was first arrested by Frederick County sheriff’s deputies in 2008. Santos later won a civil rights lawsuit against the county stemming from that arrest.

    Deputies at the time asked to see her identification while she was sitting on a curb eating lunch. They arrested her on an outstanding immigration warrant related to her failing to show up to court after having been detained after crossing into the country years before, court records state.

    A court found Santos’ Fourth Amendment right to reasonable searches and seizures was violated by the deputies.

    The Frederick County resident and her attorneys are in negotiations with Frederick County officials to determine the extent of damages. Santos also is seeking policy changes within the sheriff’s department as a result of the lawsuit.

    Santos was unable to attend a court-ordered hearing Monday to continue those negotiations because of her detainment.

    ICE officials’ decision to detain Santos came as a shock to activists and her civil rights attorney Jose Perez, who said a judge ordered in 2017 that immigration officials allow Santos to remain in the United States until the case had been settled. Perez notified ICE of the ruling Tuesday but said Santos was not released.

    Activists with CASA de Maryland, a nonprofit that helped Santos file her civil rights suit, gathered in protest outside the federal building in Baltimore where Santos was being held Tuesday. Four people were arrested and issued citations for allegedly blocking a roadway.

    Representatives for ICE and Homeland Security could not be reached for comment.
