In the surge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrests that took place last week in which almost 700 people were arrested, 23-year-old DACA beneficiary Daniel Ramirez-Medina found himself among the arrested.
Ramirez-Medina, whose undocumented status is protected under Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, was arrested at his father’s house in Washington state and his lawyers are currently fighting for his release.
People on social media have expressed outrage over this arrest and have extended their support of Ramirez-Medina.
#danielramirezmedina I stand with you. I am your brother. And I will loudly say your name.
