The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now requesting that an immigration judge deport Colotl back to Mexico, the country where she came from when she was 10-years-old.

ICE officials cited that Colotl’s prioritized deportation was mainly because of her arrest record, where in 2010 she was taken into custody after driving without a license and for being in the U.S. illegally. Officials also said Colotl made a false statement to police at the time.

“Jessica Colotl, an unlawfully present Mexican national, admitted guilt to a felony charge in august 2011 of making a false statement to law enforcement in Cobb County, Georgia,” the statement from ICE to FOX 5 stated. “Under federal law, her guilty plea is considered a felony conviction for immigration purposes
