On Oct. 22, Anahi Jaquez Estrada’s mother received a dreaded phone call.

The phone call didn’t come from ICE or even from Jaquez Estrada’s attorney. It was from the 27-year-old’s cellmate and friend at the ICE detention facility in Aurora.
“The immigration system that we’re in, I think, is very hard to understand. She tried to become legal and it just became a nightmare for her, to be honest.”
Alma Mota, Jaquez Estrada’s older sister
