ICE To Release Detained 'Dreamer' Daniela Vargas

ICE To Release Detained 'Dreamer' Daniela Vargas”

She had successfully applied for Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status twice before she was detained earlier this month.

On Friday morning, her attorneys said Vargas would be released under an order of supervision.

Danielle says that her father has never been charged with a crime here in the U.S., her brother, just a shoplifting charge.

The Clarion-Ledger reported that after her release, Vargas was driven back to MS by the same friend she was with when she was detained. Tumlin said on a conference call Vargas "spoke up" and "for that she was picked up and put in detention".

Federal agents detained Vargas on March 1 just minutes after she criticized USA deportation policies at a news conference in Jackson. "But it is important to underscore that this detention should have never transpired in the first place", she added.

Vargas' attorneys and an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Tom Byrd confirmed her release. She came out of hiding to speak at the news conference.

Daniela Vargas spoke out at Immigration Press Conference calling to open discussion with local community leaders and law enforcement agencies.

Vargas, who came to the United States from Argentina when she was 7 years old, was being treated as a "visa overstay" meaning she does not have the right to a bond or a hearing. According to her lawyers she could not renew it on time due to financial constraints.

Vargas said agents entered her family's west Jackson home, unannounced and turned everything upside down.

"Court filings regarding the reason and manner of arrest and detention continue to be pursued in an effort to secure Daniela's rights", the press release says. "We maintain our commitment to the rights of all persons in the USA, regardless of immigration status", Peterson said in a statement.

The Trump administration has said it is putting a priority on the deportation of criminals, but the Department of Public Safety, acting on Trump's immigration enforcement executive order, has given wide discretion to immigration and border officers in deciding whom they take into custody. "This is not court-ordered", Stehlik said. This is direct retaliation for her speaking out at the event.
