Immigrant Rights Advocates Demand Release of Gang Member


Immigrant rights groups are disregarding facts, and the self-proclaimed declarations by an arrested DACA immigrant, as they demand that the detainee is given immediate freedom.

On Tuesday, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials stated they had rounded up and arrested Daniel Ramirez, an illegal immigrant in America through President Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Ramirez is being held because he has gang affiliations and is a self-admitted gang member. That admission alone places Ramirez in violation of DACA policy and makes him a priority deportation, even under an Obama administration.

Greisa Martinez, director of United We Dream, is accusing President Trump of “breaking his own promises” because ICE will be deporting Ramirez, and called the move”the latest evidence that Mr. Trump is trying to make good on his [alleged] promise to oust illegal immigrants from the country.”

“Daniel must be given his freedom, now. Under Trump’s America, no one is safe. Donald Trump and Republicans must say, in no uncertain terms, that DACA recipients are safe.”

Rose Richeson, an ICE spokeswoman said, “ICE officers took Mr. Ramirez into custody based on his admitted gang affiliation and risk to public safety.”
