"As the quotes above indicate, President Trump and Speaker Ryan have sought to reassure young people with DACA that they won't be priorities for immigration enforcement, and that they don't have to worry".
Dreamer: Ramirez-Medina was one of Barack Obama's dreamers, protected by DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) act.
The move ushers in new questions about what life will be like for immigrants brought to the U.S.as children - as Ramirez was, when he was 7 years old.
"Mr. Ramirez - a self-admitted gang member - was encountered at a residence in Des Moines, Washington, during an operation targeting a prior-deported felon", U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Rose Richeson said in a statement.
The complaint continues to state that following his arrest, Ramirez's father granted ICE officers permission to enter his home so he could inform his two sons about his arrest.
A hearing on Ramirez Medina's detention is scheduled for this Friday.
Officials said they were looking for people who shouldn't be in the country, either because they have a criminal history or they have a deportation order signed by an immigration judge. "If not, then ICE has to explain why they arrested and detained a 23 year old who has been screened and cleared twice by their own agency".
A Seattle-area man who was brought to the US illegally as a child but was protected from deportation under a policy by President Barack Obama is suing the federal government over his arrest and detention last week.
On Monday, Ramirez petitioned the Western District of Washington courts.
Ramirez's detention detonated strong reactions from immigration advocates, especially in the wake of increased immigration raids over the past week and the deportation of Arizona resident Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, who was apprehended as she voluntarily complied with a yearly inspection at her local ICE headquarters. "The statement issued tonight by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is not accurate". "It's unconscionable that Daniel, who trusted the government and registered under DACA, was picked up and sent to a detention center", said Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) in a statement. Under BRIDGE, the temporary relief afforded to Dreamers by DACA would be formally protected by law.
Emily Langley, a spokeswoman for the USA attorney's office in Seattle, said the Justice Department was still reviewing the case. The agents had an arrest warrant for the father.
Mr Ramirez has filed a lawsuit challenging his detention, which states: "The agents who arrested and questioned Mr Ramirez were aware that he was a DACA recipient, yet they informed him that he would be arrested, detained and deported anyway, because he was not 'born in this country, '".
