Absolutely as it should be: "Dreamer" detained after press conference.

The idea that ANY illegal alien should be allowed to stay here, REGARDLESS of how or when that happened, is ludicrous.

It would seem the Trump Administration agrees

Immigrant detained after press conference

Daniela Vargas, 22, was detained by ICE agents Wednesday morning, shortly after speaking at a news conference in downtown Jackson, according to her attorney, Abby Peterson.

The news conference was hosted by local immigration attorneys, churches and the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance to bring attention to families impacted by deportation.

Vargas' brother and father were detained outside their home by ICE agents in February. Vargas hid in the closet. When she was discovered by agents, she was temporarily handcuffed and then released.

Vargas was 7 years old when her family came to America from Argentina, placing her under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, immigration policy. Under the policy, DACA recipients have to reapply every two years. Vargas' DACA is expired but her renewal application is pending.

Peterson said she told agents via telephone Vargas had a pending DACA case. However, agents reportedly told Peterson that Vargas was a "visa overstay" and will be detained.

Vargas has no bond and is in ICE detention.

Since she came into the country on a visa waiver program, Vargas could be processed without a hearing, Peterson said.

Thomas Byrd, spokesman for ICE, would not immediately comment.

After her father and brother were detained, Vargas previously told The Clarion-Ledger she planned to go into hiding. She came out of hiding to speak at the conference.

Every action or policy towards illegals must be viewed through a single lens: does this action or policy INCREASE the likelihood that illegals will continue to invade us... or DECREASE that likelihood?

And this cannot stop here.  Every time one of these people surfaces to slap us about our laws... they need to be arrested and deported.  Without exception.

This, it would seem, needs to be a check in the "decrease" column.

As it should be.
