BREAKING: Illegal Holds Press Conference About Being Illegal, then ICE Showed Up

By

Daniela Vargas, an illegal immigrant who had gone into hiding, held a press conference in Mississippi, apparently to tell the media how scared she was of being deported.

Then, she discovered that the days of lawlessness are over – after her press conference, she was promptly detained by ICE on her way back home.

Vargas is a so-called “DREAMer,” an illegal immigrant who was brought to the country as a child by their parents or some other border-crossing adults.

Via the New York Post:

Federal immigration agents arrested a 22-year-old immigrant moments after she detailed her fears of deportation during a news conference in Mississippi on Wednesday, according to reports.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents swooped in and cuffed Daniela Vargas — a so-called “Dreamer” granted deportation reprieve under President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy — for overstaying her visa as she left the rally in Jackson, the Clarion-Ledger reported.

ICE agents arrested her father and brother outside their home last month but Vargas hid in a closet, and agents later handcuffed her, and then released her, the Ledger reported.

She went into hiding and came out to speak at the news conference but moments later ICE agents pulled over her friend’s car as the two were driving home, according to the paper.

A judge will determine whether or not Vargas must return to Argentina.
