Chris Link of the ACLU says there are rights that immigrants and their families should know if federal agents come to their houses.

Mexican woman with work permit detained by ICE near her Fairfield home

Maribel Trujillo, who was caught up in local Koch Foods immigration raids about 10 years ago, had been concerned last year that she was going to be deported. But after churches wrote letters on her behalf to area federal politicians, she was granted a year-long work permit that lasts until this July, said her pastor at St. Julie Billiart Church in Hamilton, Father Mike Pucke.

She was given a global positioning system ankle bracelet in February during a required six-month appointment with immigration officials, not long after President Donald Trump took office. She was told to again meet with agents in Columbus a month later, Pucke said.

In March, agents told her to “come back in April with essentially a ticket” back to Mexico.

She did buy tickets, for later this month, for her and her youngest daughter, Daniela, who will be 4 in June, but she and her lawyer did not mention them to the agents on Monday because they didn’t ask about them.

Her husband, Gustavo Gonzalez, was to remain here with their three oldest children, Pucke said. He and others who had accompanied her to Columbus “were exultant” on the ride home and celebrated with Chinese food at the home of her brother-in-law, who is a citizen, Pucke said.

“I have no idea why an ICE agent would release her on Monday and then snatch her on the street,” Pucke said.
