Karina Acosta, a pregnant Roswell High School senior, was stopped for blocking a fire lane by a local policeman. She was then questioned about her immigration status because she could not produce, nor had any record of a driver’s license. Acosta was ultimately handed over to immigration officials who deported her back to Chihuahua. Citizens of Roswell protested against the deportation arguing the Supreme Court prohibited school authorities from inquiring about immigration status. A similar case in Albuquerque ended with an out of court settlement between police and the family they attempted to deport. Roswell school officials noted that attendance was significantly down over the subsequent weeks as parents and students feared the same would happen to them. A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Acosta and the officer assigned to the school has been reassigned.
