A rally was held in Pasadena Thursday calling for the release of a man who was taken by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents last month. Carlos Ortiz’s daughter said her father doesn’t have a criminal record and wants answers from authorities.

The issue of Pasadena becoming a sanctuary city will be discussed by the Pasadena City Council on March 27 and members of the public are welcome to attend, city spokesman William Boyer told KTLA.
