Agency says deported man had no special status

Agency says deported man had no special status

USA immigration officials failed to provide a legal explanation for the first-known deportation of a "Dreamer" under President Donald Trump's administration, attorneys said in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday.

The Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services didn't immediately respond to NewsHour requests for comment.

As first reported by USA Today, U.S. Customs and Border Protection approached Juan Manuel Montes on February 17 in Calexico, California, and asked for identification.

Juan Manuel Montes, brought to the United States at the age of 9 from Mexico and twice granted deportation protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, was deported in February, USA Today reported. The attorneys said Montes qualified for DACA in 2014 and renewed his status for two years in 2016. Within three hours, he was back in Mexico, becoming the first undocumented immigrant with active DACA status deported by the Trump administration's stepped-up deportation policy.

The post First protected DREAMer deported under President Trump appeared first on PBS NewsHour. He filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California on Tuesday, accusing the government of failing to provide any documentation that explains why he was deported.

A young Seattle man was detained in March after the government said he admitted to gang ties, while an Argentinian woman was detained and later released after she spoke out about Trump's immigration policies at a news conference in Mississippi. He had past criminal convictions for driving without a license and shoplifting, but his record did not exclude him from the program and his paperwork was not set to expire until 2018, according to USA Today.

"Just last month Secretary Kelly promised me that no one with DACA would lose this protection unless they violated the terms of DACA", Durbin said.

Trump has been evasive regarding Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III's dislike of DACA.

His record - minor traffic offenses and one misdemeanor offense - should not have disqualified him from the DACA program, according to the lawsuit. He took special education classes in order to finish high school, after being faced with learning disabilities from a brain injury he suffered as a child.

Trump hasn't indicated since then that he'd roll back protections on so-called DREAMers, or DACA enrollees, under the program.

A second officer arrived and drove Montes to the port of entry, where he was detained, questioned and asked to sign documents, the lawsuit says.

DHS says he also has a conviction for theft for which he received probation.

"There I worked and studied at the same time". He again was detained, questioned and asked to sign documents before being returned to Mexico. "I liked it there more than here".

United We Dream, a Washington D.C. based immigration advocacy group, condemned Montes' deportation.

"Juan Manuel was funneled across the border without so much as a piece of paper to explain why or how", said Nora Preciado, one of the attorneys with NILC.
