Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

College Sports Star Fighting Deportation

Rate this Entry

ESPN has reported that Ayded Reyes, a star Pacific Coast Conference cross-country athlete, is currently scheduled to appear before an immigration judge in March 2012, to determine whether she will be deported to Mexico.  She came to the United States as a two-year-old, and doesn't know a single person in all of Mexico.

Reyes, the top ranked women's junior college cross country athlete at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, California, was jailed for five days this past October after being encountered by police sitting with her boyfriend in a parked car.  This five day period of incarceration was used as a means to pressure Reyes into signing off on her own deportation.  Standard procedure.  

Reyes was smart, and strong enough to resist ICE officers commenting "If they make me go back, I will be lost."

U.S. Rep. Bob Filner (D-Calif.) has introduced a private bill (H.R. 3281), which if passed and signed will put a stop to Reyes pending deportation.

I'll keep you posted if updates on this story become available.
