FL Congresswoman Stops Father of Four's 4 a.m. Deportation

A last minute plea at a town hall event stopped a father of 4's deportation as Congresswoman Frederica Wilson took action.

More from Think Progress:

Hours before Rena Rivas was set to be sent back to Mexico, his 18-year-old son Carlos made a plea at a townhall meeting with Congresswoman Rep. Frederica Wilson (D) to halt Rene Rivas’ 4 A.M. deportation. After making a personal call to the ICE agent in charge of Rivas’ case, Rep. Wilson was successful in stopping the deportation, but Rivas remains incarcerated in ICE legal limbo.
