she was caught using a fake Social Security number during a raid in 2008 at a water park where she worked

It then outlines the laws Obama set up:

The Obama administration made a priority of deporting people who were deemed a threat to public or national safety, had ties to criminal gangs, or had committed serious felony offenses or a series of misdemeanor crimes

and immediately says that "Ms. Rayos did not fit any of these criteria." It acknowledges that both her, and her husband are undocumented, and her children go on to say that:
