Dreamer Arrested After Speaking on Immigration in Mississippi

Jen Mc Guire12 min ago

In his first address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, President Trump announced he was setting up an office that investigated crimes committed by undocumented immigrants.

As part of his new immigration policy, President Donald Trump is calling on local law enforcement agencies to assist the federal government in identifying and detaining people living in the country illegally.

Her attorneys are working to prepare a package with personal statements about Vargas from people who know her, in hopes of it landing in sympathetic hands that will grant her a trial instead of immediate deportation.

Thomas Byrd, spokesman for ICE, would not immediately comment.

In a statement later on Wednesday, ICE confirmed Vargas' March 1 arrest, describing her as "an unlawfully present Argentinian citizen".

Yerlyn Castro, a legal assistant at Katja Hedding Law Firm in Murfreesboro, Tenn., said the firm is in conversations with three undocumented immigrants without criminal records who were detained February 22 in their Birmingham apartment.

Bill Causey, of West Cape May, owner of the Antique Doorknob, an antique shop, said the county's economy will suffer if the agreement is signed.

As far as ICE was concerned, the action was routine.

"Those three men were picked up in a trailer park and all the kids in that trailer park didn't go to school the next day after that. That's why we're there", Perez said.

An organisation that represents immigrant groups has issued new advice to Irish people in the US.

"We're gonna show great heart, DACA is a very, very hard subject for me, I will tell you", Mr. Trump said.

Which results in more raids and more arrests.

"The corrections officers aren't going to be stopping anybody on the street", he said.

Thornton, who said he does not want Cape May County to be considered a "sanctuary county", said he supports the move. "It was like they knew who we were and they were looking for us". Four were let go because an immigration judge had previously released them on bond pending removal proceedings, the ICE spokeswoman said. Under the MOU, ICE agreed not to engage in immigration enforcement while the other agencies are conducting investigations at a work site.

It says the focus has been on people from seven countries named by the president and those with deportation orders or criminal histories.

The order steps up two controversial programs - Secure Communities, which coordinates sharing of biometric data between local jails and ICE officials, and 287 (g), which deputizes local police as immigration enforcement officers and has been linked to racial profiling in Latino communities. By ignoring their voices and barring their entry into this country, we are putting an already vulnerable population even more at risk. "It's not like there's killings on the street". She spoke on behalf of other DREAMers and her family. Enforcing labor standards is a "claims-driven process" because of the limited resources of federal and state enforcement agencies, she said.

"I think that there's a strong legal argument to be made that no, the waiver that was given by her parents when she was 7 does not carry over to now when she's 22 years old".
