They’ll hold the torch for her. Protesters were ready when Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos met with federal immigration authorities. For eight years, officials had allowed the undocumented Mexican to stay with her American children in Phoenix, provided she visited annually to answer questions. But President Trump’s new policy deports anyone who’s run afoul of the law, as Rayos did when charged with using a false social security number.
