Known DREAMer Deported Under President Trump

19 April 2017, 09:45 | Leonard Manning

Yet Trump declined to revoke the DACA protections Obama had granted to more than 750,000 undocumented immigrants, repeatedly saying he had a soft spot for these young people who are leading productive lives and have few, if any, ties to the countries of their birth.

Attorneys have filed a motion in California requesting details from U.S. Customs and Border Protection of Montes's interaction with the officer who initially detained him.

Montes' suit says he came to this country when he was 9 years old, and had been visiting a friend in Calexico, Calif., in mid-February and walking toward a taxi stand when he was approached by an officer from U.S. Customs and Border Protection who asked him for identification.

While the Trump administration is moving swiftly to crack down on illegal immigration, President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has been left in place, for now.

An agent approached Montes in Calexico, California, on February 17, and he allegedly had no identification or proof of "DACA status" with him.

Juan Manuel Montes, 23, was deported to Mexico despite having DACA status.

For the first time under President Donald Trump, federal agents deported an undocumented immigrant who was brought to the United States as a child, USA Today reported.

Montes has been in the US since he was 9 and had qualified for DACA twice; he was protected until 2018. According to the lawsuit, Montes unsuccessfully attempted to re-enter the USA a few days later.

Trump fires back at protesters demanding tax returns: 'The election is over'
He was the first major-party nominee in four decades to not release his tax returns, saying it was because he was under audit. Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas said, the "President says he's still under audit", to a booing crowd.

In Jackson, Mississippi, a young woman said she was detained after speaking at an immigration press conference.

Representatives for Montes did not have an answer as to why DHS would not have a record of Montes' DACA status. He then worked two years picking crops in California and Arizona.

"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.

He suffered a traumatic brain injury as a child that left him with learning disabilities that meant a constant struggle to keep up in school and everyday conversations, according to HincapiƩ.

The spokesman also said that Montes' DACA status had expired in August 2015 and that he had been convicted of theft for which he received probation.

Trump hasn't indicated since then that he'd roll back protections on so-called DREAMers, or DACA enrollees, under the program. "I liked it there more than here".

Montes said he couldn't understand anything he was signing and was not given any copies. He again was detained, questioned and asked to sign documents before being returned to Mexico.

Customs and Border Protection said it could not discuss Montes' case because of a privacy policy. Montes filed a complaint Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Southern California, saying U.S. immigration officials failed to provide documentation explaining the legal basis for his deportation, even after his attorneys contacted the Border Patrol and requested information under the Freedom of Information Act, according to the National Immigration Law Center.
