US detain legal immigrant in Seattle
« on: February 15, 2017, 09:16:14 AM »


A Mexican man protected from deportation has been detained in his Seattle home. Daniel Ramirez arrived in the US illegally as a child but had obtained a work permit under Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Daniel Ramirez Medina, a Mexican immigrant living and working legally in the US, was taken into custody last week after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents swept his father's Seattle home.
Ramirez arrived in the US illegally as a seven-year-old in 2001 but was granted a work permit and protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The program was introduced by the Obama administration in 2012 and protects some 750,000 people who were brought to the US illegally as children, sometimes referred to as "DREAMers" as many of the individuals were also eligible for conditional residency under the DREAM Act legislation.
Ramirez is being held in Tacoma, Washington. He filed a legal challenge in Seattle federal court on Monday, accusing the government of violating his constitutional rights.
