First Known DREAMer Deported Under President Trump
SAN DIEGO—A man has been sent to Mexico in what an advocacy group says is the first known deportation of someone who was part the DACA program to shield people who came to the U.S. as young children. The National Immigration Law Center sued the federal government Tuesday (April 18) in San Diego to obtain records on Juan Manuel Montes, who was detained by the Border Patrol in February in the border town of Calexico. “I was forced out because I was nervous and didn’t know what to do or say, but my home is there,” said 23-year-old Montes in a statement released by his lawyers. “I miss my job. I miss school. And I want to continue to work toward better opportunities. But most of all, I miss my family, and I have hope that I will be able to go back so I can be with them again.”
