Top Mexican Official Is Concerned About Arrest Of Illegal Immigrant Gang Member
A man is detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents
17 February, 2017, 00:44
U.S. immigration officials have detained a 23-year-old man from Washington state, who was authorized to remain in the country under a program established by the Obama administration.
US authorities detained a Mexican immigrant protected by an Obama-era program that defers deportation for thousands of young illegal immigrants known as "dreamers", the man's lawyer claimed in a court filing this week.
Ramirez Medina was a recipient of DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
About 750,000 young immigrants - referred to as DREAMers (because of the protections sought for them by the DREAM Act) - were shielded from deportation and received work permits under President Obama's 2012 executive actions that de-prioritized the deportations of undocumented immigrants with no criminal records. A Washington State Patrol trooper said Ramirez went 5 miles over the speed limit in Thurston County, and Ramirez listed an Olympia address. He stressed that Medina's DACA status had been renewed, meaning he had been reviewed a couple of times for the program by the government. It allows young people who were brought into the country illegally as children to stay and obtain work permits. But when immigration officials showed up at his door on F to arrest his father, they took him as well. Those immigrants were considered an enforcement priority because of criminal convictions or affiliations, the official said.
Ramirez, who was born in Mexico, is being held at an immigration detention center in Tacoma, Wash.
Ramirez's attorneys say that both he and his brother thought they were protected from deportation under DACA, created by President Obama to temporarily shield immigrants brought illegally to the U.S.as children, as the brothers were. "During targeted enforcement operations, ICE officers frequently encounter additional suspects who may be in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws", the summaries said.
That's all in preparation for a hearing in the case that Donohue set for 10 a.m. Friday. Rosenbaum said Mendoza "was repeatedly pressured" by ICE agents to "falsely admit affiliation" in a gang. "Daniel Ramirez Medina should be released immediately". The agents asked Ramirez if he was in the United States legally and he said he was.
But an ICE spokeswoman told Bloomberg BNA Feb. 15 that he's a "self-admitted gang member".
Those protected under the program, often called Dreamers, gives them at least temporary rights to work in the US and can help them eventually seek legal status.
ICE said in a statement Ramirez is a "self-admitted gang member" arrested on February 10 "during an operation targeting a prior-deported felon". "And while utterly implausible and wholly fabricated, these claims still would not be sufficient evidence that Mr. Ramirez is a threat to the public safety or national security".
Emily Langley, a spokeswoman for the USA attorney's office in Seattle, said Tuesday afternoon it would be premature to comment on the lawsuit.
"It is unacceptable that DREAMERS, who were brought to the U.S. as children and have grown up and gone to school here are being detained", Cantwell said in an e-mailed statement.
