A group of El Paso officials are calling for the return of a Walmart shooting victim who was deported. Two county commissioners, three city representatives, and four state legislators came together Tuesday in support of the immigrant only known as Rosa.

ICE officials said Rosa was deported for overstaying a 30-day visit to El Paso, but the group of legislators believe she should be returned with humanitarian parole so she could testify in the alleged shooter’s trial. Rosa’s attorneys said she applied for a U-Visa, which allows victims of crimes to stay in the United States.
