ICE Agent Caught On Camera Shoving An Immigration Attorney, Resulting In Broken Foot

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

The immigration issue isn't happening only in border states. It has moved into the heartland.

A Kansas City immigration lawyer representing a mother, father, and their three-year-old son was shoved by an ICE officer as she attempted to enter a building with her client.

The entire episode was caught by numerous cameras as Netflix was on location filming the event, as well as 30 peaceful protesters.

Andrea Martinez and a fellow attorney had arranged to meet with ICE agents at 3 a.m. to reunite the six-months-pregnant mother, Kenia, with her son Noah. Kenia had been detained by ICE and separated from her son for weeks following a traffic stop.

The father, Luis, was carrying Noah into the building, followed by Martinez, when ICE agents ushered Luis inside and then attempted to shut the door, barring Martinez from entering. As she shouted, "I'm their attorney," one ICE agent shoved her back, causing her to fall to the ground, scraping her knees and ankle and breaking her foot. 

He then shut and locked the door.
