The paper did not correct her abuse of the term "immigrant", which refers to alien individuals given a permanent right to reside in the US and work without restrictions-not foreign criminals squatting on USA territory.
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.
A 23-year-old immigrant who was cleared to work and live in the US under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has been deported. His lawyers say Montes responded that he had left his wallet in a friend's auto and did not have an identification on him.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Montes was deported to Mexico without explanation on February 17, despite the fact that his DACA status and work permit were valid.
WASHINGTON ― Immigrant rights advocates were dismayed on Tuesday by reports that the first undocumented immigrant with active Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals protections was deported under President Donald Trump.
Montes told USA Today he grabbed a bite and was waiting for a ride in Calexico, Calif., when approached by a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer.
The deportation goes against what Trump has said about children who come to America and spend most of their lives in the country.
While it has been good news that Trump has failed to live up to some of his other promises, like repealing Obamacare and enacting a Muslim ban, this is one broken promise that will tear apart innocent families and hurt the country in the process.
He lived with his mother and a younger brother, who was born in the USA and, thus, is a citizen.
A young Seattle man was detained in March after the government said he admitted to gang ties, while an Argentinian woman was detained and later released after she spoke out about Trump's immigration policies at a news conference in Mississippi. He started taking welding classes at a Southern California community college and paid for it by picking crops in California and Arizona. Just last month Secretary Kelly promised me that no one with DACA would lose this protection unless they violated the terms of DACA.
He suffered a traumatic brain injury as a child that left him with learning disabilities that meant a constant struggle to keep up in school and everyday conversations, according to Hincapié.
Montes has a record: three traffic violations and a shoplifting charge.
"They detained me, they took me to a center, they asked me a lot of questions, and I signed a lot of papers", he said.
"Juan Manuel was funneled across the border without so much as a piece of paper to explain why or how", stated Nora A. Preciado, a staff attorney at the National Immigration Law Center, (NILC) which put out the statement. "I liked it there more than here". He was also not given copies of the documents he signed, the lawsuit states.
Trump hasn't indicated since then that he'd roll back protections on so-called DREAMers, or DACA enrollees, under the program.
