USA Today Reports:
An Argentinian immigrant detained after speaking out against deportation could be deported without a hearing in two to three weeks, her attorney said.
Daniela Vargas was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Wednesday as she left a news conference in downtown Jackson, Mississippi, her attorney Abby Peterson said. At the news conference, she spoke of her fears of deportation and stressed her will to continue living in America.
Vargas sits in an ICE detention facility in Louisiana awaiting deportation. Peterson is trying to get a stay issued on the pending deportation.
“We were informed by ICE that Daniela is being processed as a visa waiver overstay and that she will not be given a bond or an Immigration Court hearing before her removal,” Peterson said. “However, this is in direct contradiction to the statement released by ICE that Daniela would be given an opportunity to present her case to a federal Immigration Judge.”
Thomas Byrd, spokesman for ICE, declined to comment Friday.

Peterson said she and her partner, Nathan Elmore, are planning to file a stay of removal Friday. If the stay is denied, Vargas could be deported to Argentina in two to three weeks. 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 Vargas had a pending DACA case. However, agents told Peterson Vargas was a “visa overstay” and will be detained.
