Children evicted following their mother's ICE detention

On a rather muggy July morning, 21-year-old Omar Arellano Cruz and his 16-year-old sister Kimberly are in a time crunch to pack up all their possessions, clear out of the home and relocate to a new place.

While Omar calculates financials and reads through page after page of an application to a potential apartment, Kimberly, along with a handful of volunteers from the Latino outreach nonprofit Mi Familia Vota, stuff belongings into boxes and pile the contents of their home into a U-Haul.

As much as evictions are never planned, Omar, Kimberly and their youngest brother, 12-year-old AJ, weren’t prepared for the shock and financial constraints that comes from suddenly forced to move.

Their mother Adriana Arellano Cruz, was detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on July 10 and still remains at its detention facility in Henderson. The children, all U.S. citizens, have been forced to deal with the aftermath.

I don't even have the energy anymore to express how pissed off I am.
