ICE Arrests Immigrant After She Reveals Her Illegal Status at Press Conference

ICE Arrests Immigrant After She Reveals Her Illegal Status at Press Conference

ICE arrested 22-year-old DACA recipient Daniela Vargas on Wednesday shortly after speaking at an immigrant press conference in Jackson, Mississippi.

Ms. Vargas's father and brother were detained by immigration officials who arrested them outside the family home last month.

Daniela Vargas, who came to the USA from Argentina when she was 7 years old, previously had a work permit and deportation reprieve under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

The detainee's attorney said the young woman's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status had expired and that she was in the middle of her renewal application process to remain in the country. "Disturbing that ICE may have followed her from an immigration press conference", he tweeted.

"You know who we are, you know what we're here for", agents told Vargas, the Clarion-Ledger reported.

"I don't know if this is immigration showing us that DACA applicants are fair game until their DACA is approved", Peterson said.

"The fingerprints police collect when booking someone into custody are automatically shared with federal immigration authorities, whether that police department wants to share them or not".

Vargas is now being held at an ICE detention facility in Louisiana.

Early warnings and actions indicate that President Donald Trump's appointees may have just a scenario in mind.

She eventually chose to speak at the news conference because, according to a friend, "She thought sharing her story might help people".

"I'm really anxious about Chicago with the surge in murders as well as the one data - one of the metrics that has been reported in Chicago shows a dramatic reduction in stops and arrests in Chicago by the police department", Sessions said, according to Politco.

And although many schools are helping educate undocumented students and parents about their rights, it's important to remember that not every educator is advocating on behalf of immigrant students.

'Why they would move forward the way they have is, honestly, mind-boggling, ' she said.

Police and county officials said they have been getting reports of people grocery shopping at night for fear of being arrested by immigration agents, and there has even been talk of people being rounded up and questioned.
