Detained Mississippi immigrant to be released

Vargas arrived in the United States with her family when she was 7, and she was granted permission to live and work in the USA thanks to President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Daniela Vargas, a native of Argentina who was detained by USA immigration agents after she publicly criticized Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids, is expected to be released, her attorney Nathan Elmore said Friday.

"I've been here for 17 years and this is the most scared I've ever been", Vargas said, with her voice trembling.

Daniela Vargas, who was arrested on March 1 after leaving a press conference in Jackson, Miss., was released on Friday. ICE issued an ominous warning for other DACA recipients via its Twitter account on Friday, tweeting that DACA is "not a protected legal status" and that "deferred action does not prevent DHS (Department of Homeland Security) from executing a removal order".

Her attorneys say, "We expect Daniela to return to her friends and community in MS shortly to resume her daily life and pursue her dreams".

Her attorneys said they are continuing to pursue legal action "regarding the reason and manner of arrest and detention.to secure Daniela's rights", the SPLC said. "We maintain our commitment to the rights of all persons in the USA, regardless of immigration status".

Sights set for modest achievements in Syria talks
Both sides agreed on the need that the issue of fighting terrorism be among the priorities of the agenda of talks aimed at solving the crisis in Syria.

ICE spokesman Thomas Byrd confirmed Vargas was released but said he didn't have any additional information.

Vargas was brought to the United States by her family from their native Argentina when she was just 7, Peterson previously told BuzzFeed News.

In a subsequent written release Vargas' attorneys said that Vargas is to be released today, March 10, 2017 under an Order of Supervision, the exact terms of which are unknown. But Vargas failed to renew her status at the end of the mandated two-year period in November. ICE's assertion that her detention is "routine" is absurd and seems anything but. Vargas hid in the closet.

Last week, we brought you the story of Daniela Vargas, the DREAMer who was detained without a hearing after speaking at a press conference.
