A 23 year old Mexican man, brought to this country by his parents at a very young age was detained by U.S. Immigration Authorities.  He lives and works in the U.S. under the DACA program. He is being held in the Detention Center in Tacoma, WA. This program currently protects approximately 750,000 people from deportation. The reasons for his arrest are in dispute and he is filing a challenge to his detainment. It is unknown if other DACA recipients have been detained since President Trump took office. There is concern that this action signals an escalation of immigration enforcement efforts.
