NATIONAL CITY, Calif - A video that shows a Southern California woman being arrested by U.S. customs officials in front of her three daughters has prompted outrage on social media.

Thirty-six-year-old Perla Morales-Luna was walking down the sidewalk in National City, CA, on Saturday when she was picked-up by U.S. border patrol agents.

Federal authorities say Morales-Luna is in the country illegally and is part of a criminal smuggling organization.

Criminal smuggling organizations are conduits for the movement of narcotics, illicit goods, criminals, and illegal immigration.

In the video, Morales-Luna's three daughters can be heard sobbing and call for "mom" as she was taken into custody.

Morales-Luna remains in border patrol custody awaiting transfer to I.C.E for deportation.

The daughters, meanwhile are staying with a family member.
