'Dreamer' deported because he forgot ID, couldn't prove status

'Dreamer' deported because he forgot ID, couldn't prove status

Montes had left his wallet in a friend's auto, so he couldn't produce his ID or proof of his DACA status and was told by agents he couldn't retrieve them.

An illegal immigrant who received temporary legal status under former President Obama has been deported to Mexico, the first known removal of a so-called "Dreamer".

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 United States as children - the first time a so-called Dreamer had been given the boot, a new report said Tuesday.

A case involving a man who was deported to Mexico despite having permission to be in the USA under a program that shields young immigrants has landed in the courtroom of a judge whose impartiality was questioned by Donald Trump during the presidential campaign because of his Mexican heritage.

Border agents then took him to a local station where he signed documents without being allowed to see an immigration judge, seek counsel or obtain copies of the papers he signed, the suit alleges.

Montes, who has reportedly lived in the US since he was 9 years old, apparently forgot his wallet in a friend's vehicle and was unable to show any identification or proof of his DACA status.

Greisa Martinez, the group's director who has DACA protection, said Montes' case proves that people like herself are at risk despite what Trump said.

"Some people told me that they were going to deport me; others said nothing would happen", Montes told USA Today from western Mexico where he has been staying.

"I was forced out because I was nervous and didn't know what to do or say, but my home is there", Montes said in a statement. I miss school. And I want to continue to work toward better opportunities.

Three hours later, he was deported to Mexico. "But most of all, I miss my family, and I have hope that I will be able to go back so I can be with them again".

CBP and USCIS did not immediately respond to a request for comment. "Border Patrol, this one's for you". "The government shouldn't treat anyone this way - much less someone who has DACA".

The case may help define Trump's approach to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which was introduced in 2012 by President Barack Obama.

He pursued a welding degree from a community college and worked as a farmworker for about two years in California and Arizona.

King said last week that he was "very disappointed by the lack of action" Trump had made on reversing DACA after pledging to end the program during his 2016 election campaign.
