Undocumented immigrants fearful Trump will end 'Dreamer' program

Undocumented immigrants fearful Trump will end 'Dreamer' program

If these claims are true, he would be the first DACA-protected undocmented immigrant to face the wrath of Trump's newly-energized deportation force. "The government shouldn't treat anyone this way - much less someone who has DACA".

Customs and Border Protection said Montes was arrested after climbing over a border fence in downtown Calexico and admitted under oath that he had entered the country illegally. A spokesman said they only have record of him being deported after scaling the border wall on February 19. Authorities now acknowledge that Montes, qualified for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program but still defend the decision to return him to Mexico.

A highly unusual and racially charged episode from the 2016 campaign suddenly resurfaced this week when a federal judge whom President Donald Trump repeatedly criticized was assigned to hear the case of a man who claims he was improperly deported.

USA Today noted that Montes was not a "poster child" for DACA.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has insisted the administration has not detained or deported anyone with an active DACA status, but several former DACA recipients have been detained and, in some cases like Montes', the government has maintained that a violation of the program forfeited the status.

The federal judge who President Donald Trump tried to discredit for his "Mexican heritage" will be overseeing a case involving a controversial deportation, USA Today reported. The supposed incident occurred just days before the Trump administration's February 21 announcement that it would leave DACA protections, which affect undocumented individuals who entered the country as children, intact. On Wednesday, the judge was assigned a blockbuster case: The lawsuit filed by a dreamer who argues that he was unlawfully deported.

Reports of Trump White House Shake-Up Are 'BS' - But Something's Going On
White House aides told The New York Times that the president hoped this weekend's Mar-a-Lago meeting would help smooth tensions . He actually said 'cuck, ' as in "cuckservative, '" the administration official told The Daily Beast .

"I was nervous and didn't know what to do or say, but my home is there", Montes added in a statement provided by his lawyers, who filed suit on his behalf in San Diego. But the lawsuit alleges that the incident described by Border Patrol happened days after his initial deportation.

The lawsuit, which is brought under the Freedom of Information Act, has already become a flashpoint in the Trump administration's immigration policy and the President's murky position on DACA.

"Juan Manuel has been unequivocal in his assertion that he never voluntarily left the country while he had DACA", said attorney Nora Preciado. "We will see them in court".

Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez, 23, arrived in the United States when he was 9. It grants them renewable two-year periods to stay, during which time they can study and work if they keep out of trouble.

The agency said Montes was once convicted of theft and sentenced to probation.

The government has issued almost 800,000 DACA permits since President Barack Obama introduced the program in 2012 and almost 700,000 renewals.
