A heart-wrenching story about an abused ‘undocumented transgender woman’ that was detained by ICE is leaving out some details.
The headlines on social media are painting the Immigration agency in a negative light while being very sympathetic to the illegal immigrant.
If people just read the headlines and don’t click the link, they’re getting a very skewed picture of the incident.
Here is the CBS story:

Hey, ICE, that’s pretty cold. (Pardon the pun)
Seriously, doesn’t that make ICE look heartless?
Well, here’s the part that none of them mention.
It’s in the CBS Story when you actually click the link.
This poor, abused ‘undocumented transgender woman’ was deported 7 times and previously arrested for domestic violence, assault, and false imprisonment.
Check it out.
KDBC obtained documents filed in federal court stating that Homeland Security Investigators (HIS) Border Enforcement Security Taskforce (BEST) Agents received information that an individual who had been previously deported was in the United States. The information stated that the individual was residing at the Center Against Sexual and Family Violence. IT also stated that the individual had previously been arrested for possession of stolen mail and illegal re-entry into the United States and sentenced to 12 months and a day…
…According to the affidavit filed by federal agents, the individual has been removed from the United States six times and voluntarily returned to Mexico one other time.
Her alleged criminal history includes convictions for false imprisonment in 2013; assault, probation violation, domestic violence in 2011 and false imprisonment-minor-parental in 2010.
