FEEL-GOOD STORY OF THE DAY: Illegal Alien “Dreamer” Arrested After Presser Is Deported Without Hearing

Excerpted From The Hill: A 22-year-old who was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials early Wednesday, moments after giving a speech at an immigration press conference, will be deported without a hearing, according to her lawyer.

Daniela Vargas spoke at a press conference in front of city hall in Jackson, Miss., and was driving away with a friend when ICE officials pulled them over and detained her, her lawyer said, according to The Associated Press.

Her DACA status expired last November, and because she was saving money for the renewal — which costs $495 — her new application wasn’t received until Feb. 10.

On Wednesday, a spokesman for ICE said Vargas would go through court proceedings to determine whether she is eligible for some type of relief, adding that the agency would take no further action until those proceedings were completed.

But Abby Peterson, Vargas’ attorney, said ICE agents told her on Thursday that they would instead pursue immediate deportation without a court hearing or bond because Vargas entered the country through the visa waiver program, which allows certain foreign nationals to enter the U.S. for under 90 days without a visa. (Argentina was previously part of the program, although it no longer is.) By using that program, her family waived some of their rights, Peterson said. Keep reading
