Viral Video Shows ICE Officers Dragging Man To The Ground As His Kids Watched In Terror
A video that is going viral shows U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers breaking a man’s car window to arrest him as his family watched in terror.
The video, which was posted on Facebook, shows ICE agents telling Florencio Millan-Vazquez, 32, that they had a warrant for his arrest and deportation, but they would not show the man the documents.
According to the man’s wife, who is listed on Facebook as “Pucca Love,” the couple was trying to take their “sick daughter to the hospital” when they got stopped.
In the video, ICE agents can be seen asking to see documentation from Millan-Vazquez.
After about 25 minutes of recording, the officers smashed Millan-Vazquez’s window and pulled him out of the car and onto the ground, where they handcuffed him. Millan-Vazquez’s children can be heard in the recording crying and saying they are scared. He is currently being held by the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department.
According to NBC News, ICE claims that Millan-Vazquez was ordered out of the country by a federal immigration judge in 2011. He returned to Mexico but was issued an expedited removal order by immigration officials after reentering the country five days later.
