    Judge Curiel to oversee 'Dreamer' deportation lawsuit

    You have got to love the irony of this...

    Gonzalo Curiel, the judge Donald Trump attacked as a candidate because of his “Mexican heritage,” will hear another case involving the president — this time, a lawsuit filed against his administration by a 23-year-old undocumented immigrant who was recently deported. Juan Manuel Montes, who had protected status under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as the Dreamers program, filed a complaint on Tuesday arguing that government officials who deported him to Mexico failed to offer him documents outlining why his deportation was legal.

    Curiel, the judge assigned the case, previously oversaw a pair of California lawsuits against Trump University, which eventually resulted in a settlement.

    Prompting widespread accusations of racism, Trump lashed out at the judge, claiming that he was unable to hear the case fairly because he was “Mexican.” Curiel, whose parents were Mexican immigrants, was born in Indiana.

    Wonder if MM is smart enough to keep his mouth shut this time.

    And WTH? DACA kids were NOT supposed to be deported.

    Why is it 'ironic'?....if you're expecting the judge to rule in Montes' favor, you're confirming his bias.

    and just because The Lightworker Pen and Phoned an edict that protects illegals and their Jackpot babies doesn't mean they are forever entitled to live in the US.

    I was reading about that last nite, @HayJenn. They picked him up on this side of the border (Calexico, CA) and deported him. When asked about why he was deported, they said he 'left the country' without seeking permission...he left the country when they deported him. That's some really tortured "logic", even for the government.

    Montes deported without hearing
    According to the Associated Press, DHS acknowledged that Montes had received DACA protections in 2014 and renewed them for two years in 2016, but that he lost those protections when he left the country without permission.

    Montes’ attorneys said*he did not leave voluntarily, but rather was deported by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

    In a statement, according to the Los Angeles Times, Montes said he was walking to a taxi stand in Calexico, California when he was approached by CBP, and, not having his identification with him, was taken to a border patrol station. Montes alleged that he was made to sign documents without seeing an attorney or an immigration judge, and that he was not given a copy of the documents, according to the Times.

    CPB said in a statement, according to the Times, that Montes*admitted to illegally entering the United States by climbing over a fence in Calexico. But the paper reported Montes’ lawsuit contends that he climbed a fence only after he was suddenly deported while being protected by DACA.

    In his lawsuit, the report continued, Montes also noted he requested records of his interactions with CPB, but has not received any information from the agency.
    DHS originally claimed that Montes’ DACA protections had expired, the AP reported, but they later acknowledged that he would have been eligible to remain in the country under the program through 2018.

    The guy left the US. He gave up his DACA rights when he went back to mexico. He got caught climbing the border fence, entering illegally. He also had criminal convictions. He should have never been given the daca visa in the first place.

    Yeah, no.

    Montes-Bojorquez' suit says he came to this country when he was 9 years old and had been visiting a friend in Calexico, Calif., in mid-February and walking toward a taxi stand when he was approached by an officer from U.S. Customs and Border Protection who asked him for identification.

    Montes-Bojorquez said he had left his California identification card and his employment authorization document in a friend's car. Unable to verify that he was covered by DACA, Montes was detained, questioned and asked to sign certain documents. Within three hours he was escorted to the border and left in Mexicali, Mexico.

    Montes-Bojorquez, who had twice been granted protection from deportation under DACA, filed the lawsuit against U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The suit, brought under the Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, alleges that the government has ignored all requests for information about Montes' deportation. According to the lawsuit, Montes unsuccessfully attempted to re-enter the U.S. a few days later.

    Feds say they didn't deport 'Dreamer,' but acknowledge error on his DACA status - LA Times

    One point immigration officials and Montes attorneys agree on is that Border Patrol officials detained Montes on Feb. 19 as he tried to scale a fence back into the U.S. He was returned to Mexico.
    Montes, who said he has lived in the U.S. since he was 9, has learning disabilities after suffering a traumatic brain injury when he was young. He did farm labor and studied welding at a community college before he was deported.
    Officials said Wednesday that Montes had four criminal convictions — one for shoplifting and three for driving without a license. But those offenses are not serious enough to disqualify someone from DACA.

    What difference does it make if he tried to scale a fence or hail a Taxi? He had TWICE been granted protection for deportation. And your link even says with those minor "convictions" it didn't change his status as far as DACA goes.

    So Judge Curiel will over see the lawsuit. Let's see if MM can act like a grown up this time, although I'm not holding my breath on that one.

    When did it become okay to approach people in this country and say,"papers, please."?

    Well technically he was still in Mexico when he got arrested. But he shouldn't of been arrested in the first place according the Administration's guidelines when it comes to DACA.

    That's why this story blew up a couple of days ago.
