Judge targeted by Trump to hear high-profile deportation case

U.S. Customs and Border Protection disputed the account of Montes' immigration status, saying that his DACA permit expired in August 2015 and, according to its records, was not renewed.

A young California man protected by Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was deported to Mexico earlier this year, becoming the first DREAMer to be expelled under the Trump administration.

"Mr. Montes-Bojorquez lost his DACA status when he left the United States without advanced parole on an unknown date prior to his arrest by the US Border Patrol on February 19, 2017", said DHS spokeswoman Jenny Burke in a statement. Curiel, who was born in IN, had previously presided over a different lawsuit in which Trump, in his role as a businessman, was accused of fraud by former students of the his now-defunct Trump University.

"It is of interest because of the judge having been previously attacked - unfairly I think - by candidate Trump, but I don't think legally there's much of an issue here", Johnson said.

"The Trump Administration is terrorizing patriotic young people who want nothing more than to live, work and contribute to the country they love - the only home they've ever known", Pelosi said in her statement. Trump has kept it in place and made sympathetic remarks about its beneficiaries, upsetting some immigration hardliners.

"Based on the rulings that I have received in the Trump University civil case, I feel justified in questioning whether I am receiving a fair trial", Trump said. He was approached by Border Patrol agents in Calexico, California and prohibited from getting his wallet from a friend's auto so that he could prove his status, USA Today reports. Valedictorian, high-achiever, activist or not, DREAMers are more than their academic accomplishments, they are imperfect, complex, attractive humans. "Border Patrol, this one's for you", King tweeted, with a link to the story and picture of a beverage.

CBP claims Montes had left the country without authorization before being arrested, a charge his lawyers deny. And though Customs and Border Protection was able to ultimately determine that Montes had DACA protection, the lawsuit says, the agency still deported him to Mexico less than three hours later. Officers walked him to the U.S. -Mexico border and released him into Mexicali. He also claimed that the agents wouldn't allow him to retrieve those documents.

An estimated 1.4 million Dreamers have received DACA since the program's inception, according to the most recent data from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

"Juan Manuel has been unequivocal in his assertion that he never voluntarily left the country while he had DACA", said attorney Nora Preciado. "The answer is, he is giving us very unfair rulings - rulings that people can't even believe".

Immigrants can legally be removed without a court case under a process called expedited removal if they're within 100 miles of the border and have been in the United States less than two weeks.

Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez, 23, arrived in the United States at just 9 years old, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday. He was attending welding classes and was paying for school by picking crops in California and Arizona.
