How did she get on ICE's radar?
During the legal battle, she appealed a court order to voluntarily deport.
Rayos' husband and children joined about 200 protestors that attempted to block ICE vans from taking her away.
Ms Rayos was 14 when she left Acambaro, a city in an impoverished corner of the Mexican state of Guanajuato, and sneaked across the border into Nogales, Arizona, a three-hour drive from Phoenix.
Garcia, who is allegedly an undocumented immigrant and lived in the country for 22 years, is reportedly scheduled to be deported under an executive order issued by Donald Trump.
Garcia de Rayos, the mother of two USA -born children, was convicted of felony impersonation and served six months in detention.
"Ms. Garcia's immigration case underwent review at multiple levels of the immigration court system, including the Board of Immigration Appeals, and the judges held she did not have a legal basis to remain in the US", the agency added.
"No one should ever have to be separated from their mother", he said.
Her 16-year-old son Angel said: "She's always there for me. No one should have to go through this".

Mexico is warning its citizens in the USA to "take precautions" following the deportation of a Mexican woman who had lived in the U.S. for more than 20 years.
She spoke to reporters in Mexico and explained how she was targeted not just by President Trump's hard-line policies but by notorious Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who routinely targeted Latinos. However, the former president was known to be easier on people like Garcia de Rayos.
Demonstrators can be heard shouting "Power to the people, no one is illegal!" and "Justice!"
"Besides the few people engaged in criminal acts, most people out here are peaceful and exercising their rights properly", police said. Everyone remains safe so far.
"Some protesters at the ICE building have chosen criminal conduct instead of free speech", the statement read. They didn't know if Rayos had still been aboard.
Garcia de Rayos, who has two children who were born in Arizona, was warned by activists and her lawyer that she could be deported. (A 2011 memo from the department states that enforcement actions - arrests, interviews, searches, and surveillance - should not occur at sensitive locations, which includes hospitals, churches, and schools.) But she chose to take her chances. He still remembers the first time ICE arrested her.
