Deportation for Dreamer?


Daniel Ramirez Medina, a 23-year-old immigrant from Mexico with no criminal record, was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers when they entered his father’s Seattle home. Medina entered the United States illegally as a child, but was later given a work permit through President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. He does not have a criminal record.

DACA protects 750,000 people who were brought into the U.S. illegally as children, shielding them from deportation by giving them the temporary right to work in this country. The Trump administration now threatens this program, promising to crackdown on nearly 11 million illegal immigrants, the majority of whom come from Latin American countries.

Medina is challenging his detention, arguing that, under the DACA program, the detention is a violation of his constitutional rights. Unfortunately, he is not the only one facing this injustice. ICE officers have arrested over 680 people who entered the country illegally. Although Trump has yet to explicitly state his position on DACA since taking office, these arrests present an ominous future for those granted a DACA card.

These operations, according to Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, have been conducted in at least a dozen states, though he claims they are routine and not out of the ordinary. Nevertheless, there is a real fear that the Trump administration will continue to escalate immigration enforcement efforts.
