SEATTLE (AP) — The U.S. government must stop asserting without evidence that a Mexican man it’s trying to deport has gang ties, a federal judge in Seattle ruled Tuesday.
Pending a final ruling in the man’s case, U.S. District Judge Ricardo S. Martinez also forbid U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services from revoking Daniel Ramirez Medina’s work authorization or his enrollment in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
DACA was launched under former President Barack Obama to allow those brought to the country illegally as children to remain for work or study.
Ramirez, 25, came to the U.S. at age 10. He drew international attention when the government revoked his DACA status early last year and placed him in deportation proceedings, even though he has no criminal record and three times passed background checks to participate in the program.Baba OhReally, Pastiche, ElfinWilde and 1 otheriggy like this
