ICE To Release Detained 'Dreamer' Daniela Vargas


Vargas will likely return to her friends and family in MS shortly to resume her daily life and pursue her dreams.

In a statement to ABC News last week, ICE spokesman Thomas Byrd said Vargas was arrested "during a targeted immigration enforcement action in Jackson, Mississippi".

"We're gonna show great heart, DACA is a very, very hard subject for me, I will tell you", Mr. Trump said at a press conference in February.

Being brought to the states at age 7 on a visa, DACA, Deffered Action for Childhood Arrival, status is now expired but her renewal application has been submitted and is pending.

The details of her release were not immediately available.

Daniela Vargas spoke out at Immigration Press Conference calling to open discussion with local community leaders and law enforcement agencies.


After days of speculation, lawyers representing Daniela Vargas said the woman from Jackson, Miss., who was in the US illegally, would not be deported anytime soon.

"Disturbing that ICE may have followed her from an immigration press conference", Sen. Peterson said that it was expected that Vargas would soon be returning home.

Vargas, originally from Argentina who came to the U.S.as a child, also was in the house when ICE came for her father and brother on February 15, but agents declined to arrest Vargas then. But her DACA status expired in November, and her renewal application hadn't been processed at the time of her arrest.

Daniela Vargas, 22, spoke to reporters at the press conference in Jackson, Mississippi, on March 1, sharing her fears of being deported following the arrests of her brother and father.

Abigail Peterson, another lawyer for Vargas, said her client was relieved to be out of custody. Not every person will be fortunate enough to have the kind of backing that Daniela was afforded and we need to make sure that the enforcement priorities do not allow other individuals like Daniela to be unjustly detained for deportation.

"I think that she's doing pretty well given everything she's gone through", Peterson said. This is direct retaliation for her speaking out at the event.
