US deports Mexican woman who was among 25 immigrants detained in Texas after border protest

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement has deported one of 25 immigrants who last month surrendered to U.S. authorities at the Texas-Mexico border to protest immigration policies.

ICE said Tuesday a judge determined 23-year-old Rocio Hernandez Perez was ineligible for immigration relief. No explanation was provided on the Mexican national's case.

ICE spokeswoman Leticia Zamarripa tells The Associated Press that Perez "was removed from the country." The Mexican Consulate confirms Perez was sent back to Mexico City.

The 25 are among 34 immigrants who crossed an international bridge from Mexico into Laredo on Sept. 30, knowing they did not have the legal status to enter America.

Those being held spent years living in the U.S. after being brought to the country illegally. They're demanding they be allowed to return to the U.S.
