Protesters against deportation of Arizona womanProtesters on Wednesday night blocked official vehicles attempting to leave a an immigration office in Phoenix where earlier in the day a woman had been arrested and possibly ordered back to Mexico after more than two decades in the United States.

Guadalupe García de Rayos, a 35-year-old mother of two American citizens, was taken into custody during a routine meeting with officials at the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement office, the New York Times reported. Rayos has been required to check in with ICE every year since 2008, when she was caught working under a fake Social Security number. The New York Times reported that the meetings were typically quick and routine, consisting of little more than "a brief review of her case and some questions."

But after she was arrested on Wednesday, authorities "began procedures" to send her back to Mexico, according to the New York Times.

Emmett Till Murder Trial Witness: I Lied

Emmett TillOn a steamy hot September day in 1955, in a racially segregated courtroom in Sumner, Mississippi, two white men, J.W. Milam and his half-brother Roy Bryant—a country-store owner—were acquitted of the murder of a 14-year-old black Chicago boy. His name was Emmett Till.

And in August of that year, while visiting a Deep South that he didn’t understand, Till had entered a store to buy two cents worth of bubble gum. Shortly after exiting, he likely whistled at Bryant’s 21-year-old wife, Carolyn. Enraged, Bryant and Milam took matters into their own hands. They would later admit to local authorities that they’d abducted Till three nights later. And when they finished with him, his body was so hideously disfigured from having been bludgeoned and shot that its horrifying depiction—in a photo in Jet magazine—would help to propel the American civil rights movement.
