Juan Manuel Montes may be the first "DREAMer" deported under Donald Trump

Juan Manuel Montes, 23, is believed to be the first undocumented immigrant deported to Mexico under the Trump administration despite having permission to live and work in the United States.

The Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and United States Citizenship and Immigration Services didn't immediately respond to NewsHour requests for comment.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Dan Hetlage said Montes was arrested by the Border Patrol after illegally entering the U.S.by climbing over a fence in downtown Calexico. He says he told them that he has DACA status and left his wallet in a friend's auto, but the officers wouldn't let him retrieve his ID.

"Some people told me that they were going to deport me, others said nothing would happen", Montes told USA TODAY from his aunt and uncle's home in western Mexico.

The deportation, his lawyers claim, is the first of its kind under the administration of President Donald Trump, a fact disputed by the Department of Homeland Security.

He was approached by Border Patrol agents in Calexico, California and prohibited from getting his wallet from a friend's vehicle so that he could prove his status, USA Today reports.

Border agents then took him to a local station where he signed documents without being allowed to see an immigration judge, seek counsel or obtain copies of the papers he signed, the suit alleges.

So now you have to live in NY , which according to smartasset.com, has a cost of living 68.8% higher than the national average. What does it mean, indeed - especially for current, future and prospective State University of NY at Fredonia students.

A young man who was protected from deportation under an Obama-era program aimed at allowing immigrants brought to the United States as children to stay was sent back to his native Mexico by US border authorities, USA Today reported on Tuesday.

The group's advocacy director, Greisa Martinez, who has DACA protection, said Montes' case is proof that people like herself are at risk despite what Trump said.

"I do have a big heart", he added.

The lawsuit says that Montes has cognitive disabilities due to a traumatic brain injury suffered as a child, but graduated high school by taking special education courses and had enrolled in community college, though he was working as a farmhand prior to his deportation.

The deportation goes against what Trump has said about children who come to America and spend most of their lives in the country. The organizations said at least 10 DREAMers are in federal custody. "We'll be coming out with policy on that over the next period of four weeks". Spokeswoman Jenny Burke said the department had no record of him renewing his DACA status after it expired in 2015, only a record of him being caught climbing the wall on February 19. Preciado said the lawsuit was filed to determine "what happened" in February and that they are unable to move forward without additional information. Montes sneaked back into the US the next day - with his wallet this time - but got scared and turned himself in to CBP, the lawsuit says.

Several DACA recipients have been detained by immigration officials in recent months, causing many to question if their reprieve from deportation is valid under the Trump administration.
