Trump's order is a major departure from former President Barack Obama's deportation priorities, which focused primarily on deporting undocumented immigrants convicted of serious crimes and allowing those with long ties to the US and no significant criminal background to remain in the U.S. Seeing her get taken away in a bunch of vans like she was like a huge criminal.
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. Her lawyer claimed she didn't know the woman whose identity she was accused of stealing. Her husband, Aaron Reyes, is also undocumented.
Crowds, chanting, "No one is illegal", gathered outside the ICE headquarters all afternoon and evening to protest against her detention.
Garcia de Rayos was among the workers arrested in one of then-Sheriff Joe Arpaio's first investigations into Phoenix-area businesses suspected of hiring immigrants who had used fraudulent IDs to get jobs.
Officials warned Mexicans in the U.S.to be cautious, aware of their rights and to stay in contact with their local consulate.
She arrived in the USA over 20 years ago and has two American-citizen children.
"We all knew something could be different this time with the new administration", said Carlos Garcia, director of the advocacy group Puente Arizona, to the LA Times.
The case has been viewed as a outcome of President Donald Trump's recent expansion of immigration laws. Protests are already quickly building up around García de Rayos's case - and that's something that previously led Obama's team to call individual ICE offices to tell them to cut it out.
Phoenix Police Sgt. John Howard confirmed to ABC News on Thursday that seven people were arrested and charged with obstructing governmental operations and obstructing a public thoroughfare.
That all changed on Wednesday, though, as Trump's executive order has returned "a great deal of discretion to ICE officers in the field to enforce immigration laws as they were written", the Center for Immigration Studies' Jessica Vaughan notes.
Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos has become a high-profile example of President Trump's approach to illegal immigration.
She was consequently ordered to self-deport in 2013, but was given a pass under the Obama administration's relaxed immigration standards, which mainly targeted "violent criminals or people who pose a threat to national security".

"But Garcia de Rayos was allowed to continue to live in Arizona, under supervision and with regular check-ins with ICE, as member station KJZZ reports".
Phoenix police arrested seven people who tried to block a van carrying Garcia de Rayos.
In a statement, ICE said Rayos' removal was finalized by the Department of Justice in May 2013.
What Trump's executive order has done is to is put in place rules that punish everyone but criminals.
