US Rep. Steve King toasts Border Patrol over deportation

The advocacy group says the 23-year-old Montes had permission to work and live in the United States in the program that was introduced in 2012 to shield people from being deported.

"Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez was apprehended by the Calexico Station Border Patrol after illegally entering the U.S.by climbing over the fence in downtown Calexico", DHS spokesman Matt Lapan told the TheDC. The center and the law firm of Covington & Burling filed a lawsuit Tuesday under the Freedom of Information Act, seeking all CBP documents with information about why he was removed from the United States. His DACA status was good through January 25, 2018, according to the DHS. Montes, who could not produce identification to corroborate his DACA status, was said to have left his wallet in a friend's auto. Under the program, DACA recipients can legally work in the USA, obtain identification and in some cases receive driver's licenses.

Montes filed a complaint yesterday with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, saying that the government failed to provide documentation that explained the legality of his deportation.

But despite Trump's promise, Montes was deported.

Once in Mexico, Montes had a friend deliver his wallet and identification to him and he crossed into the US on February 19 where he turned himself in to CBP authorities who again escorted him out of the country, according to court documents. "We believe him", Nora A. Preciado, a staff attorney at the Los Angeles-based National Immigration Law Center, said in a statement Wednesday. "No one should have to file a lawsuit to find out what happened to them".

Trump previously said he wouldn't roll back the DACA policy, created by his predecessor Barack Obama, and told ABC News that DREAMers "shouldn't be very worried" about deportation. He added: "I have to deal with a lot of politicians, don't forget. There is a lot of things being looked at in terms of the circumstances surrounding that", Spicer said.

Representatives for Montes did not have an answer as to why DHS would not have a record of Montes' DACA status. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, portrayed the administration's stance as in favor of "an indiscriminate deportation dragnet of appalling inhumanity". The Department of Homeland Security says it has no record of that encounter, but say they deported Montes after he was caught trying to re-enter the country illegally. Curiel will now have to decide whether Trump's administration can legally detain and deport individuals who were guaranteed the right to live and work in the U.S.

Montes has four criminal convictions-one for shoplifting and three for driving without a license-but these do not disqualify him from DACA protections.

"I intend to hold him to this commitment", said Durbin. The FOIA lawsuit alleges that this was a separate incident that occurred a few days after the deportation, in which Montes turned himself in after 30 minutes back in the United States.
