The "DREAMer" was had been granted deportation protections, not once but twice, under the DACA program created by President Barack Obama.
U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel will rule on the lawsuit brought by 23-year old Juan Manuel Montes, a California resident who was approved for protected immigrant status under the Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. But court records show a misdemeanor for shoplifting, which doesn't bar him from DACA. Montes also had been arrested for theft and sentenced to probation, although Montes' lawyers argue that conviction is not grounds for revocation of DACA protection. DHS says he acknowledged entering illegally.
According to the article, he told the officers he left his wallet in his friend's auto and, because he didn't have his ID or proof of his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status, he was deported.
The Department of Homeland Security claimed Wednesday Montes no longer qualified for DACA. He said the administration's enforcement priorities are people who committed crimes in the United States and pose a threat.
"Based on the rulings that I have received in the Trump University civil case, I feel justified in questioning whether I am receiving a fair trial", Trump said. But in February, Montes was approached by a suspicious Customs and Border Protection agent.
Montes' case is believed to be the first case of a DACA "Dreamer" having been deported. "Border Patrol, this one's for you", King tweeted, with a link to the story and picture of a beverage.
"Juan Manuel was funneled across the border without so much as a piece of paper to explain why or how", Preciado said. On Wednesday, the judge was assigned a blockbuster case: The lawsuit filed by a dreamer who argues that he was unlawfully deported.
Montes was taken to a Border Patrol station where, he alleges, he was made to sign documents and not allowed to see an immigration judge or attorney.
Palestinians in Israeli prisons begin hunger strike
The last mass hunger strike occurred in 2014, when hundreds of prisoners protested the use of administrative detention. More than 1,000 prisoners in six Israeli prisons have joined the strike, making it one of the largest in recent years.
However, the lawsuit contends that the fence-climbing incident happened separately - days after Montes was initially deported by Border Patrol agents.
Curiel also presided over the settlement of two lawsuits from former students of the Trump U. wealth seminar courses against the then-President-elect in November.
"His DACA status expired in August 2015 and he was notified at that time". When he asked to retrieve them, the border agents would not let him do so.
Mr. Trump had promised to protect these individuals from deportation, even as he pledged, on the campaign trail and in the Oval Office, to crack down on immigration. Rather than continue to provide half-truths and varying assertions, DHS should respond to our request for documentation.
One of Trump's harshest rebukes came from House Speaker Paul Ryan, who described the language as "sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment". He is now in Mexico.
"But my home is there", Montes said.
Montes received renewed DACA protections in January 2016, which keeps him enrolled through 2018.
