AURORA, Colo. -- An Aurora family is looking for a way to bring back and husband and father who was just deported to Mexico by immigration officials.

Jose Luis lived in Aurora with his wife and four children. He owns a small business and is also a minister.

The Immigrant Rights Coalition says he was a law-abiding man who broke just one law: Entering the United States again after being deported in 2004.

The coalition believes the president's executive action should protect someone like Luis.

"The reason why is because this program is depending upon the discretion of our local field office and our local field office seems not to be applying the discretion that's been asked of them," Immigration Rights Coalition spokesman Brendan Greene said.

The family's lawyer is now considering a civil rights lawsuit that cites lack of due process.
