Trump immigration raids target fewer criminals than Obama raids

492659324-man-is-detained-by-immigration-and-customs-enforcement

USA immigration officials have detained a 23-year-old man from Washington state, who was authorized to remain in the country under a program established by the Obama administration.

Manuel Sada said that Mexico is concerned about what the arrest might signal for the 600,000 Mexican migrants brought to the U.S.as children who were granted temporary legal status in the USA under president Obama's 2012 deferred action for childhood arrivals, or DACA, order.

Monday, ICE released another statement saying the president directed their department to focus on removing those in the country illegally who have been convicted or charged with criminal offenses, pose a public threat, and people who have been deported and re-entered the country illegally. In 2014, Daniel became part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program.

Daniel Ramirez Medina was taken into custody last week by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in Seattle during a raid on his father's house and transferred to a facility in Tacoma, Washington, despite having committed no crime, according to the habeas corpus petition. The case raises questions about what it could mean for Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.

Ramirez was picked up by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers who'd arrived at his home looking for his father, who came to this country from Mexico, according to advocates. A Washington State Patrol trooper said Ramirez went 5 miles over the speed limit in Thurston County, and Ramirez listed an Olympia address.

Barber says the increased enforcement actions are directly related to a new executive order signed by President Trump which significantly broadened the priorities for ICE deportations. It allows young people who were brought into the country illegally as children to stay and obtain work permits. "We're fine. They didn't take anyone inside my home because we all have our proper documents", Herrera said. But advocates have anxious that his administration could upend the DACA program and use personal data collected from applications to target scores of immigrants for deportation.

This was one of the first times a DACA applicant has been taken into custody, and it is creating anxiety among the over 700,000 young people who had applied for DACA and their families.


For that reason, and not because of a change in policy under the Trump administration, Justice Department officials said, authorities detained 23-year-old Daniel Ramirez Medina.

"ICE officers took Mr Ramirez into custody based on his admitted gang affiliation and risk to public safety".

Ramirez has filed a complaint in federal court against his detention; according to the Reuters story, he's still being held at the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center as of today.

In the latter case, ICE has claimed the man had gang affiliations, but has declined to say how it knows that. She said they had to come up with a $5,000 bond for him to remain free pending the hearing.

AS A candidate, Donald Trump pledged "zero tolerance for criminal aliens", a stance, stripped of its tough-guy rhetoric, that might not have represented too drastic a departure from President Barack Obama's prioritization of undocumented felons for deportation.

His attorneys argue Ramirez is being "presently detained without justification" and that he presents "no threat to national security or public safety".

Are we a country that honors its promises? "So we're expecting some answers back". The agents had an arrest warrant for Mr. Ramirez's father.
