ATLANTA — This video was filmed in February.

But this month, U.S. Immigration and Customs and Enforcement revoked Jessica Colotl’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Colotl, 28, is challenging the decision in court, reports said.

Here’s what she said in February:

"Just because someone is driving without a license or ends up in jail for a minor traffic violation ... [they] should not have to be deported," said Colotl, who is now 28. "I think that's a cruel and usual punishment that's actually against the Constitution."

Latina Youth Once Threatened With Deportation Speaks Up

  • Scott Molnar

    You are not being deported for driving without a license. You are being deported because you are in this country illegally. They only found out about your status when you were caught driving with out a license. No where is it unconstituional to charge someone and punish them for an additional crime when they are caught for something else.
