Lawsuit: Man deported after being part of protection program

20 April 2017, 06:55 | Laverne Osborne

The feds deported a young man back to his native Mexico in apparent defiance of President Trump's pledge to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as children - the first time a so-called Dreamer had been given the boot, a new report said Tuesday.

After spending an evening with his girlfriend in Calexico, Calif., on February 17, Juan Manuel Montes, 23, who has lived in the U.S. since age 9, grabbed a bite and was waiting for a ride when a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer approached and started asking questions. Officials say he admitted he entered illegally and that he was "convicted for theft for which he received probation".

The illegal immigrant "Dreamer" who's become a cause celebre for advocacy groups after his deportation earlier this year had actually lost his legal status by leaving the US without permission, negating his permit under President Obama's deportation amnesty, federal officials said Wednesday.

This undated photo provided by the National Immigration Law Center shows Juan Manuel Montes, 23.

"We look forward to presenting our case to the court, because our client has the right to know why and how he was physically removed from the United States when he had permission to live and work here", said Monica Ramirez Almadani, one of Montes' attorneys. "The U.S. Border Patrol has no record of encountering Mr. MONTES-Bojorquez in the days before his detention and subsequent arrest for immigration violations on February 19, 2017".

Montes' case has received global attention because Trump had pledged to exempt people enrolled in the DACA program from being deported under his tougher enforcement policies toward undocumented immigrants.

The federal judge who President Donald Trump tried to discredit for his "Mexican heritage" will be overseeing a case involving a controversial deportation, USA Today reported.

According to his attorneys, Montes came to the US when he was 9.

U.S. Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican, applauded Montes' removal in a tweet that linked to a story in USA Today, which first reported the case. Trump has promised to end undocumented immigration into the country-but has wavered on the specifics of the DACA policy. Living in the United States since he was nine, he studied welding at a local community college, helped support his family by working in agricultural fields in California, and had an active work permit, his lawyers said. I miss school. And I want to continue to work toward better opportunities. In a January interview with ABC News' David Muir, the president addressed DREAMers, telling them they "shouldn't be very anxious". CBP claims that Montes' DACA protection expired in 2015, but his lawyers say they have documentation showing otherwise.

He had minor run-ins with the law, four convictions to be exact: one for shoplifting and three for driving without a license.
