Rumors Of Immigration Raids In Oregon Create Panic Among Immigrant Community

A 23-year-old Mexican man who was brought to the United States illegally at the age of seven has been arrested and detained, despite having a valid work permit.

While ICE won't likely receive much criticism for removing a person wanted for murder (there was at least one) or individuals who had been convicted of sexually assaulting minors (there were at least two), the concern stemming from the arrests has less to do with the 38 NY denizens who had criminal convictions than the other three who did not.

A Mexican immigrant brought illegally to the United States as a child but with no criminal record and on a work permit has been arrested.

ICE agents took Ramirez to a Seattle processing center where he told them that he had a work permit. The complaint shows a copy of his latest DACA renewal, from May 5, 2016, which shows it is in effect for two years following that date.

DACA allows people who arrived illegally in the United States as children to gain rolling two year work permits and escape deportation as long as they do not get a criminal record.

"We are hoping this detention was a mistake", Dettmer said.

Immigrant advocates say immigration authorities began conducting a sweep of rural areas near the city to arrest undocumented immigrants.

Ramirez was transferred to the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington and was expected to face deportation proceedings with Department of Justice's Executive Office for Immigration Review, Richeson said. This will likely be the first time we hear why ICE claims Daniel Ramirez is a gang affiliated and the evidence they may have.

Update 4:26pm: Senator Maria Cantwell's office says that she is working with Senator Patty Murray to make contact with ICE over Ramirez's arrest. The Guardianreports a hearing has been scheduled for Friday.

That alarmed Verizon officials, who immediately launched their own investigation into the losses. Reuters reports that the final price reduction could in fact be as high as $350 million.

"Since the start of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in 2012, approximately 1,500 recipients have had their deferred action terminated due to a criminal conviction, gang affiliation, or a criminal conviction related to gang affiliation", the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, under which immigration enforcement agents operate, said in a statement. "Daniel Ramirez Medina should be released immediately".

Trump can withdraw DACA through an "operational memo" because Obama implemented it through one, said William Stock, president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

"It is unacceptable that DREAMERS, who were brought to the USA as children and have grown up and gone to school here are being detained", Cantwell said in an e-mailed statement.

Ramirez-Medina's father was not taken into custody, despite that being the purported objective of the raid.

Daniel Ramirez Medina, 23, "stated 'no, not no more, ' when asked if he is or has been involved with any gang activity", the documents said.

Legal experts say that unless the Trump administration revokes the program, DACA recipients should still be protected.

His lawyers have filed suit in federal court in Washington state arguing he is being "presently detained without justification" and he presents "no threat to national security or public safety".

People in the program are sometimes called "dreamers", in reference to the proposed Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors legislation, aimed at setting up a path to permanent residency for immigrants, which failed to pass.

"Where do we stand" when agency employees are given "such indiscriminate discretion" that anyone's rights could be violated-even those of citizens?
