Arrests as protesters fear deportation for Mexican mother

Seven people have been arrested at protests outside a US immigration office in Phoenix, amid fears a woman was due to be deported to Mexico.

Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, 36, was taken into custody during a routine check in at the centre, US reports say.

The mother of two has been living in the US illegally since the age of 14.

Protesters, who feared her deportation under President Donald Trump's clamp down on immigration, blocked a van believed to be carrying Ms de Rayos.
