Detained DACA Recipient Released, But Dreamers Still At Risk

Detained DACA Recipient Released, But Dreamers Still At Risk

At a news conference in Jackson, Mississippi, Vargas said a path to citizenship was "necessary for DACA recipients, but also for the other 11 million undocumented people with dreams". But Vargas failed to renew her status at the end of the mandated two-year period in November.

Vargas' attorneys and an Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Tom Byrd confirmed her release.

Vargas is still not safe from deportation, but will be able to live outside of immigrant detention as she awaits a final decision on her case.

"U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) took Daniela Vargas, 22, an unlawfully present Argentinian citizen, into custody March 1, during a targeted immigration enforcement action in Jackson, Mississippi", the statement said. She is being held at an ICE detention center in Louisiana. She spoke at a press conference on March 1 in front of City Hall in Jackson, recounting the moment ICE agents arrested her father and brother just weeks before.

Vargas has been in the USA since her parents brought her here from Argentina at the age of 7.

Vargas arrived in the United States with her family when she was 7, and she was granted permission to live and work in the US thanks to President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

"There's power in many voices standing up and saying this is wrong", said Karen Tumlin, legal director of the National Immigration Law Center.

Elmore said he was concerned that a deportation order against Vargas has not been rescinded.

The exact terms of her release are unknown, her attorneys noted Friday in a press release. "Not every person will be fortunate enough to have the kind of backing that Daniela was afforded". She reapplied in February but her application was still pending when she was arrested.

"She was very surprised this morning when this all happened, and very relieved", Peterson told reporters on a conference call.

They plan to pursue "court filings regarding the reason and manner" of Vargas' arrest and detention. We maintain our commitment to the rights of all persons in the United States, regardless of immigration status.

Meanwhile, her attorneys will pursue further legal action, including a request for a stay of attempts to remove from the country.
