The workers faced felony fraud charges for using a fake ID when they sought medical care.

In February, Rodriguez was getting ready for work when he suspected an intruder in his home and called the police for help . Cops handcuffed Rodriguez, took his wallet, and drove him to an ICE field office where he was then detained by immigration officials.

Then the mechanic, his wife — a U.S. citizen who was also asked for her papers — and their child were detained for four hours until ICE arrived. In Mount Holly Springs, which is surrounded by sprawling farms with immigrant workforces, Police Chief Thomas L. Day Jr. said he had called ICE for decades

Macarreno’s lawyer Luis Cortes told The Daily Beast that deportation for his client, a 32-year-old father of three, is a “realistic possibility,” said Cortes. The carpenter fled to the United States 14 years ago to escape violence in Honduras. “His brother was shot and killed, and one of his friends was chopped up in pieces in El Salvador,” Cortes claimed.

In his hometown community, Macareno actively participates in church and helped increase the Spanish-speaking congregation, according to his attorney.

Police said they discovered Macarenno’s warrant from 2004 when running his information through the National Crime Information Center database, but “it was later determined that the warrant in question was administrative in nature and that it had been entered in the...database the same way a criminal warrant would have been entered.”

Maccarreno’s attorney, Cortes, said his client had a “run in with immigration officials in Texas” in 2004 and received an “in absentia order” from ICE when he missed a court hearing to review his deportation case. According to the American Immigration Council, immigration judges can issue an in absentia order when the government has properly notified undocumented immigrants of their court dates.

Cortes said he plans to fight the deportation by trying to reopen the 2004 case and request a hearing before an immigration judge. If the request for a stay of deportation based on merit fails, Macareno “will be deported back to Honduras in a matter of days,” said Cortes.

Tukwila police said “going forward, officers will not be responsive to administrative warrants issued by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, nor will it collaborate with the agency.”
