ICYMI: DACA Recipient Faces Deportation After Going to ICE to Post Bond for Another Person


ICE Agent: “When Trump came in, DACA doesn’t exist anymore”

On the same day that deported DACA recipient Juan Manuel Montes ’ case is before a federal judge, the Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that another DACA beneficiary from northwest Kentucky is facing imminent deportation.  
Riccy Enriquez Perdomo, a two-time Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient and mother of two U.S. citizen children, was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents last week.  She is being fast tracked for deportation despite her current DACA status.  
Said Lynn Tramonte, Deputy Director of America’s Voice Education Fund:
It’s outrageous that the US Government is rushing to deport Riccy Perdomo, a mother of two and a DACA recipient.  One agency of the government has granted her permission to stay, while another agency of the same government is trying to deport her.  It’s cruel, unfair, and unacceptable.  The US Government needs to honor its word, and let Riccy go back to her life and her family immediately.
