Abstract Lilian Calderon, 30 years old, is a Guatemalan immigrant and mother of two was brought to the U.S. when she was three years old. In January 2018, Calderon and her husband visited U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) near their home in Rhode Island to take the first step towards becoming a lawful permanent resident. Immediately after her successful interview with USCIS officials, Calderon was suddenly arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and sent to a detention facility in Boston.
On February 5, 2018, the ACLU of Massachusetts with support from the ACLU of Rhode Island sought her immediate release and a court order blocking immigration officials from deporting her until she is given a hearing. The filing argued that Calderon's detention violated her constitutional rights.
