He is married to American citizen Lace Rodriguez, and the family had lived together in Phoenix. Guerrero, an undocumented worker from Mexico, said he was detained by the U.S. Border Patrol after being stopped for speeding and drug possession, held for three months by ICE and then deported March 4 to Nogales, Mexico. Guerrero had lived in the United States for 17 years. He and Rodriguez, a medical student, have two children, and she is nine-months pregnant with a third. The splitting up of families has become a major issue as the U.S. works towards immigration reform. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
