Agency says deported man had no special status

Trump talked tough about building a border wall throughout his campaign, and since taking office has tried to limit immigration from several Muslim majority nations as well crack down on illegal immigrants with criminal records.

"I was forced out because I was nervous and didn't know what to do or say, but my home is there", said Montes in a statement released by his lawyers. I miss school. And I want to continue to work toward better opportunities.

Montes was arrested by a Border Patrol agent on February 17 while walking to a taxi station in the border town of Calexico, California, according to the complaint.

CBP and USCIS did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Still, the president and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly have said DACA recipients would not be the target.

So it's no surprise he had little sympathy for Juan Manuel Montes, a 23-year-old who came to the U.S.at the age of 9 and was detained and deported by the Border Patrol, first reported by USA Today on Tuesday.

Montes had previously been approved twice for deportation protection under the DACA program, created in 2012 under then-President Barack Obama to allow immigrants who came to the U.S.as children to temporarily live and work in the country.

Montes was taken to a Border Patrol station where, he alleges, he was made to sign documents and not allowed to see an immigration judge or attorney.

"His DACA status expired in August 2015 and he was notified at that time". Montes was deported to Mexicali, Mexico a few hours later.

Montes was walking to a taxi station in the border town of Calexico after visiting with a friend when a Border Patrol official on a bicycle stopped him and asked for identification, according to a statement from the National Immigration Law Center, an immigrant rights organization that is part of a group representing Montes in his lawsuit.

"Some people told me that they were going to deport me; others said nothing would happen", Montes told USA Today from western Mexico where he has been staying. In March, 22-year-old Daniela Vargas of MS was detained for two weeks after speaking out against her father's detention in a news conference. He was enrolled in special education programs throughout his schooling and graduated high school in 2013.

Trump has been evasive regarding Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III's dislike of DACA.

He pursued a welding degree from a community college and worked as a farmworker for about two years in California and Arizona. Unable to verify that he was covered by DACA, Montes was detained, questioned and asked to sign certain documents.

Court records show he has four convictions: one for shoplifting in January 2016, and three for driving without a license, most recently three months ago. His lawyers say the conviction would not disqualify him from DACA, which requires a background check. Montes sneaked back into the US the next day - with his wallet this time - but got scared and turned himself in to CBP, the lawsuit says.
