Seven protestors were arrested outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in Phoenix Wednesday night to protest the detention of a woman who had been living illegally in the United States since she was a teenager.

Immigration experts say the case is likely the first casualty of a shift in immigration policy coming out of Washington. Here & Now‘s Robin Young speaks with KJZZ reporter Jimmy Jenkins (@newsjunkyjimmy), who was there.
