U.S. immigrant detained by authorities in Seattle

U.S. immigrant detained by authorities in Seattle

Trump, a Republican who took office on January 20, has promised a crackdown on the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, most of whom come from Mexico and other Latin American countries.

U.S. immigration officials have detained 23-year-old Daniel "El Loco" Ramirez Medina, who was authorized to remain in the country under a program established by the Obama administration.

Daniel Ramirez, who has no criminal record, was arrested in his father's home in the city of Seattle on Friday. He is believed to be the first of around 750,000 "DREAMers" brought to the United States illegally as children to be detained in recent immigration raids, and lawyers have filed a petition in federal court seeking his release.

However, Adams said he believes Ramirez was apprehended by mistake.

"Immigration enforcement came to pick up his dad and then picked up Mr. Ramirez at the same time", said Martinez.

Richeson declined to comment further on how ICE established that the man was a gang member.

Under DACA, foreign citizens brought to the country illegally as minors were protected for deportation and given a work permit, valid for two years after each renewal. They took him to a processing center, where, according to a lawsuit filed on his behalf, Ramirez once again told an ICE agent that he had a lawful work permit.

He was detained by US Customs and Enforcement Agents, who were looking for his Father.

A hearing on Ramirez Medina's detention is scheduled for this Friday.

The Homeland Security secretary called the focus of the recent raids, which resulted in the arrests of almost 700 undocumented immigrants, "consistent with the routine, targeted arrests carried out by ICE's Fugitive Operations teams on a daily basis".

An ICE spokeswoman has alleged that Ramirez is a "self-admitted gang member" and a "risk to public safety". Ramirez first obtained DACA protection in 2014 and renewed his protection in 2016, the complaint filed against him stated.

Medina is one of more than 680 immigrants arrested and detained by immigration officials last week, including 41 people in the NY area. Mark Rosenbaum, one of Ramirez's lawyers, responded that Ramirez "unequivocally denies being in a gang" and that the statement from Richeson is inaccurate.

Given Ramirez Medina's legal status - which remains intact despite a new executive order by president Trump targeting undocumented migrants - the reason for his arrest is unclear.

The US President has previously said those people were "here illegally" but "shouldn't be very worried", adding: "I do have a big heart".

'We're going to work something out that's going to make people happy and proud, ' he said. The agents had an arrest warrant for the father. But the document states one of the ICE agents replied, "It doesn't matter, because you weren't born in this country". In the meantime, ICE should release Daniel from detention immediately.
