The immigrant's attorneys said he has no criminal convictions, the gang claim is not true, and claimed he was "repeatedly pressured by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to falsely admit affiliation", The Times reported.
He's never been convicted of a crime, has a valid work permit and a job.
He was detained by US Customs and Enforcement Agents, who were looking for his Father.
Fellow protester Rolando Avila, 32, is in the same situation as Ramirez Medina was in before his arrest Friday. Together more than 680 people were arrested by ICE according to a statement from the agency.
"We're actually taking people that are criminals, very, very, hardened criminals in some cases with a tremendous track record of abuse and problems", Trump said. She says the national enforcement efforts are sending shock waves through Utah's immigrant communities.
Q13 News spoke with attorneys with the Hawkins Law Group and Barrera Legal group, both based out of Seattle, who have joined Daniel Ramirez Medina's legal team. The federal government has explicitly given Ramirez permission to live and work in the U.S. Unless Ramirez's DACA status is formally revoked, he retains a liberty interest and a property right in retaining his DACA benefits.
"While ICE has not provided an explanation of why they detained this young man, we do not want to create unwarranted concern", the organization said.More news: Father: 'Fabinho favours Manchester City move'
According to court documents, Ramirez was born in Mexico and brought to the USA when he was about 7 years old. He first received DACA status in 2014, then had it renewed past year, his attorneys say, meaning he should have been protected until 2018.
Greisa Martinez, advocacy director of United We Dream and herself a DACA beneficiary, said Tuesday that Ramirez's detention is proof that Trump can't be trusted.
The Homeland Security secretary called the focus of the recent raids, which resulted in the arrests of almost 700 undocumented immigrants, "consistent with the routine, targeted arrests carried out by ICE's Fugitive Operations teams on a daily basis".
He said he had a work permit and the "C-33" code on his identification to prove his legal residency. ICE agents had no warrant to arrest Ramirez, nor did they secure one after detaining him.
"It doesn't matter", the agent responded, according to the lawsuit, "because you weren't born in this country".
Court documents state Medina has been in custody for more than 70 hours without probable cause. Indeed, his arrest itself likely violated his constitutional right to be free from unreasonable seizures.
"ICE must provide answers & release Daniel immediately".
ICE provided a tally of 655 people arrested in New York, California, Illinois, Texas, Missouri, Kansas, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana and Wisconsin.
