On May 18, Claudia Rueda was arrested outside of her aunt’s home by agents with the United States Customs and Border Protection. The agents claim they were involved in a drug investigation in the area but neither Claudia nor the six other individuals arrested were brought in on drug charges. Rueda believes her detention happened in response to her protest against her mother’s arrest days earlier. Now, Rueda plans on applying for DACA.
