DACA Dreamer Deported To Mexico - Advocacy Groups

DHS said Montes admitted the illegal entry under oath in interviews conducted in Spanish and signed the arrest documents. Susan Collins said Wednesday that the deportation of a 23-year-old man alleged to have had protected status in the USA contradicts President Donald Trump's own stated policy on the issue. Montes was first approved for DACA in 2014 and successfully obtained a renewal in 2016.

The problem, though, is on the part of the story both sides agree on: Montes tried to sneak back into the U.S. on February 19 and was caught by Border Patrol. But it said Montes acknowledged under oath that he entered the country illegally on February 19, forcing him to lose status because it was an admission that he left without required permission. DHS says he acknowledged entering illegally. The Border Patrol arrested after him after he climbed over a border fence in the California border town of about 40,000 people.

Established in 2012, DACA covers some 750,000 young people brought to the U.S.as children.

An undocumented immigrant who was deported to Mexico, despite having immigration protections, has filed a lawsuit against the USA government.

"DACA enrollees are not being targeted", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday on Fox News.

"We have a USCIS-issued document that shows he was authorized to work".

The case has raised questions about the administration's policy toward DACA recipients.

"The federal government made a promise to Juan Manuel and all DACA recipients", Preciado told The Post. How he was deported?

On Tuesday, Montes filed a lawsuit in Southern California's U.S. District Court, which stated that ICE failed to provide documentation explaining the legal basis for his deportation. "The reason they're called "Dreamers" because that's the most sympathetic term that could be apply applied to people", he told CNN, last year, arguing that even migrants under the age of 10 should be subjected to the law. DACA status is renewable every two years.

The case became an instant flashpoint.

Advocates on Tuesday accused the government of improperly deporting a man who should have had protected status in the US - but the Department of Homeland Security disputes their claims. "To me, it's one of the most hard subjects I have, because you have these incredible kids", Trump said.

Montes said he first came to the U.S.as an undocumented immigrant as a 9-year-old in 2004. DHS has said that anyone covered by DACA needs to get pre-clearance before leaving the country, and that Montes crossing the border from Mexico showed that he violated that condition, thus voiding his DACA status.

While conservative pundit David Frum drew attention to Montes' criminal record on Twitter, none of his convictions were serious enough to prohibit him from receiving DACA protections.

"I'm disturbed about reports that a Dreamer with DACA protection has been deported", Sen.

"I intend to hold him to this commitment", said Durbin.

Democrat Nancy Pelosi, minority leader in the House of Representatives, commented on the report, saying in a statement: "Another promise cruelly broken by President Trump, this one with heartbreaking consequences for fearless young DREAMers across the nation". "And it's troubling if we don't know where our assets are".

"First non-valedictorian DREAMer deported".

King, of Iowa, posted a picture on Twitter of a filled U.S. Border Patrol mug Tuesday.

He suffered a traumatic brain injury as a child that left him with learning disabilities that meant a constant struggle to keep up in school and everyday conversations, according to Hincapié. Montes is suing the federal government. "Juan Manuel deserves due process".

Washington, D.C. lawmakers spoke out about Montes' deportation Thursday, split along party lines.
