California Demands Information About Immigration Raids
Governmental immigration authorities have arrested the 22-year-old woman from Jackson, Mississippi, Wednesday after she had spoken to media about the arrest and detention of her relatives.
On Feb. 15 ICE agents arrested Vargas' father and brother during a raid on their home.
She recalled watching ICE agents taking away her father and brother and said: 'I was scared for my life'.
Under DACA, undocumented immigrants who came to the US before they turned 16 were eligible for two-year renewable visas that would allow them to stay in the country to work or go to school provided they didn't commit any crimes. Vargas and her family first came to the USA from Argentina on a three-month visa when she was seven years old, and she later received DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
Vargas spoke about her fears of being deported on Wednesday while advocating for a pathway to citizenship for all illegal immigrants.
When HuffPost emailed with her on Tuesday, Vargas - who was planning to go back to school to study to be a math professor - said she was moving around because she was "afraid to stay in one spot and be taken back to Argentina".
Vargas is now being held at an ICE detention facility in Louisiana.
Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown is allied with the leaders of local law enforcement agencies across the nation who are justly anxious about the prospect of stepped-up federal efforts to round up those who are here without permission, even those who have committed no serious or violent crime, and send them back to countries they may not have seen in decades. "I just watched them handcuff my dad and take them". Lin said he didn't know whether his predecessor's layoff was also tied to the recent arrests. What happens next depends on what I.C.E. wants to do.
"They have no right to enter your house unless they have a warrant signed by a judge", said Anibal Romero, a Newark lawyer.
However, he did say that the memo calls for the hiring of 10,000 more ICE agents in the next year to begin more actions.
Vargas's arrest "was a real shock to people", he adds-not only those in the immigrant community, but to other groups as well.
"If ICE comes to the city of Newark and decides to do a raid, we don't have the right to stop them", East Ward Councilman Augusto Amador said.
The Democratic leaders have introduced several proposals since December to provide legal services and other taxpayer-funded assistance to undocumented immigrants. They filed a Freedom of Information Act request Monday with the Department of Homeland Security.
Boughton says Danbury will cooperate with ICE enforcement, and will work as a "force multiplier" in a city with an estimated 5,000 undocumented immigrants.
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.
