Media ignore key detail in story about ICE arresting father driving pregnant wife to hospital

Venegas, who was ready to go into labor, then had to drive herself to the hospital, where she had gave birth to a baby boy, alone. Agents with ICE questioned the couple and asked for identification, Venegas said.

Venegas, who can be seen sobbing in gas station surveillance footage, confirmed that her husband, who is from Mexico, has been living in the USA illegally for 12 years, according to AP.

Venegas said she began pleading with officers because the couple was three blocks from their home and were on the way to the hospital.

Joel Arrona was heading to a San Bernardino, California, hospital with his pregnant wife for a planned cesarean section when Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers detained him, forcing his pregnant wife to complete the journey and deliver the baby without him. "My husband needs to be here".

According to a statement from ICE, the agency's Fugitive Operations Team detained Arrona-Lara and he is in custody with pending removal proceedings.

He was also dismissed from Ridley Scott's drama film All the Money in the World and Christopher Plummer was hired to replace him. In a statement, distributors Vertical Entertainment defended to decision to release the film with Spacey's scenes intact.

Gas station surveillance footage showed agents in two black SUVs pull up to the gas station and quickly apprehend Arrona-Lara.

In a statement released from ICE, the agency claimed that Joel had an outstanding warrant of homicide charges in Mexico against him. "I never thought. that they would take him away, that they would hand him over, and that they would leave me at the gas station".

Arrona-Lara remains in detention at the Theo Lacy Facility in Orange County, Amaya said.

"Mr. Arrona denies any criminal history in Mexico and he is unaware of any criminal proceedings in Mexico in which he is named as a defendant", his defense team said in a statement. "All of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States". She said they do not have legal authorization to live in the USA, but that all five of the couple's children were born here and are US citizens. In April 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered federal prosecutors on the US-Mexico border to adopt a "zero tolerance" policy towards undocumented immigration, a hardline approach that lead to the separation of thousands of families.

Arronas legal representative, Emilio Amaya García, told The Post he believed Arrona was not suspected of crimes within the United States, but did not say if he was suspected of crimes elsewhere. "They put the well-being and safety of the mother and baby at risk".
