Federal authorities deported 23-year-old California resident Juan Manuel Montes, who has lived in the U.S. since the age of nine and twice received Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals protections under Barack Obama’s administration, in what appears to be the first case of a DACA-protected “DREAMer” being deported under President Donald Trump.
According to USA Today, Customs and Borders Protection officers approached Montes in Calexico, California on Feb. 17, after Montes had left his wallet in a friend’s car.
Just three hours later, Montes found himself deported to Mexico.
“Some people told me that they were going to deport me; others said nothing would happen,” Montes told USA Today. “I thought that if I kept my nose clean nothing would happen.” Read more (4/18/17 5:40 PM)
Trump will once again have to face U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the Mexican-American judge whose impartiality Trump famously questioned during the campaign because of his Mexican-heritage.
The Trump administration will now have to go before Curiel in the case of Juan Manuel Montes, the first undocumented “Dreamer” protected by the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program to be deported during the Trump administration.
The 23-year-old Montes was arrested and deported in February while visiting his girlfriend in Calexico, California.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents claimed that his DACA had expired, but Montes’ lawyers have reportedly produced evidence showing that his protected status does not expire until 2018.
Curiel has been asked to rule on whether the CPB must release information on Montes’ arrest and deportation to his team of attorneys. Read more (4/20/17)
