Immigration agents arrest man while he is driving his pregnant wife to hospital

美国一男子驾车送临产妻子医院途中遭移民局逮捕



The husband is in the US illegally but had simply forgotten his identification at home

该男子在美国非法滞留,但他将身份证明落在了家中

当移民局在加油站扣留自己的丈夫后,产妇Maria del Carmen Venegas不得不独自驾车前往医院生产。

A pregnant woman in California said she had to drive herself to hospital to give birth because immigration authorities had taken her husband on the way there.

一名来自加利福尼亚的孕妇称,由于美国移民局在加油站将自己的丈夫逮捕,她自己不得不独自驾车前往医院生产。

Maria del Carmen Venegas said her husband Joel Arrona Lara was driving her to the delivery room in San Bernardino, California, a city east of Los Angeles.

当时,Maria del Carmen Venegas的丈夫正开车载她前往圣贝纳迪诺当地的医院产房,该城市位于洛杉矶东部。

The couple had stopped at a petrol station when surveillance footage showed two vehicles with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents question the couple about identification documents.

根据监控录像,该夫妇将车停到加油站时,有两名美国美国移民及海关执法局的官员上前盘问,并要求其出示身份证。



Mr Arrona is originally from Mexico and has been in the US for 12 years without legal authorisation, Ms Venegas confirmed.

Ms Venegas承认,她的丈夫是墨西哥人,在未取得合法身份的情况下,已经在美国生活12年了。

She noted he has never been in trouble with the police before and is the sole provider for the family.

她又补充说,自己的丈夫从未给警察惹麻烦,而且是家里唯一的经济来源。

ICE confirmed in a statement Fugitive Operations agents had detained Mr Arrona on 15 August and said he would remain in custody pending deportation proceedings.

美国移民局在一份声明中确认,人员追捕特工于8月15日拘留了Arrona,他们会继续拘留该男子,并等待执行驱逐出境程序。

The agency said it "will no longer exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement."

移民局称“美国的所有非法移民将不再享有豁免权”

The agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment on why they had chosen the couple’s vehicle at the gas station to ask for identification nor why they had not allowed Mr Arrona to go to their home nearby to retrieve his ID card.

但是,被问及为何会选择在加油站逮捕该男子,以及为何拒绝他回家取回身份证明时,移民局并没有立刻做出回应。

Ms Venegas told the news station she had not even been able to tell her husband about their newborn son as yet. It is unclear why ICE was not allowing her to communicate with him.

Ms Venegas告诉当地电视台,她甚至还把孩子出生的消息告诉自己的丈夫。但是,移民局为何拒绝他们之间的联系,目前仍不为人所知。

"The last thing he knew was that I was here in the hospital. I'm sure he's worried,” she said.

她说“自己的丈夫只知道她到了医院。他现在一定非常担心!”

ICE has come under harsh criticism after its role in separating more than 2,000 children from their families at the US-Mexico border and placing them in detention facilities, often causing psychological trauma to them according to medical experts.

在美国——墨西哥边境,美国移民局因将2000多儿童与家庭拆散,并将其安置在拘留设施中而遭到批判。根据医学专家称,移民局的这种行为会给这些孩子们带去心灵创伤。

Several politicians and candidates running for office this year have called for the abolishment of the agency, which had been established in the wake of the September 11th attacks as fears of national security abounded.

现在,多个竞选政党人员和候选人呼吁取缔这个建立于911事件后的安全机构。
【评论】MAYDAYEITHER THEY ARE LEGAL OR THEY ARE NOT. THE USA HAS ENORMOUS PROBLEMS WITH THAT MEXICAN BORDER BUT IN ANOTHER COUNTRY THESE LEGAL ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS WOULD HAVE TAKEN HER TO HOSPITAL AND ARRESTED HIM.

不管他们是合法还是违法移民,美国政府在美国——墨西哥边境上的做法存在非常大的问题。如果是在其它国家,这些警察在执法前,一定先会把人送到医院才会逮捕。

MRNIGELCHRISTOPHERHe broke the law for 12 years and then expects sympathy.

这个男人违反美国法律12年了,现在反而来博得大家的同情了?
Tom ThumbThe husband is in the US illegally but had simply forgotten his identification at home. BUT?! That but would belong there had it been legal instead of illegal. Suppose he had his ID with him. He'd STILL have been detained because he's here illegally.

该男子在美国非法拘留,但他将身份证明落在了家中。但是?只有这名男子拥有合法身份的前提下,这个“但是”才适用。可他根本没有合法身份,所以最后他还是会被逮捕的。



Sage3Either way, they could have shown some humanity and allowed him to take his wife to the hospital, accompanying him. Somehow they forget to be humane.

不管怎么说,他们应该表现地更加人道一些,允许这个男人陪着他妻子去医院。但他们就是忘了怎么人道地对待别人。

Yulin2016He was arrested because MEXICO had a murder warrant out for him and asked ICE to apprehend him. Great unbiased reporting on this site LOL

之所以这个男人被逮捕,是因为墨西哥对他下了谋杀逮捕令,并申请美国移民局前去逮捕他。这网站的新闻报道可真是够公正的,呵呵。
