The first known Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program recipient who was detained under Trump's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) crackdown is finally being freed.

Daniel Ramirez Medina is a 24-year-old DREAMer who was arrested by ICE agents when they entered his family's Seattle home to apprehend his father.

ICE initially came to remove his dad because he had been ordered for deportation, but subsequently Medina was taken to a detention center in Tacoma, Washington on February 10. Although Medina has been allowed to reside and work in the US since 2014 because he is a DACA recipient, ICE placed him in custody due to alleged gang activity and was considered a “risk to public safety.”

He was 23 when he was arrested and spent his 24th birthday in the facility. 

After being held in a federal immigration jail for nearly two months, a judge has agreed to release him on a $15,000 bond.

Earlier this month, a judge had denied the DREAMer's plea to be taken out of detention — and it wasn't the first time they declined his request, either. 

Now Medina is able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and will be able to reunite with his three-year-old son again. "Today the judge affirmed that Daniel does not pose any risk to public safety," Luis Cortes, an attorney on Ramirez’s legal team, said in a statement. 

Medina's case had sparked outrage across the nation, with thousands of people protesting ICE and his arrest.

It was believed that ICE officials had manipulated Medina's documents to make it look like he had admitted to being in a gang. Mark Rosenbaum, one of Ramirez’s lawyers, told The Stranger, "What began, I thought, as a mistake in bringing Daniel in has turned into a bogus operation that is attempting to railroad him and violate the sacred program that the DACA represents."

Although the White House and senior officials noted the effect Medina's case could have on DACA recipients across the country, ICE has made it very clear that DREAMers are not exempt from deportation.

"I have a son who I love and miss every day."

While Medina has spent an alarming amount of time in a detention center, he still had remained optimistic because of people's solidarity with him. 

In an op-ed for The Washington Post, Medina wrote, "Despite how terrible this situation has been, in some ways, I am still one of the lucky ones. I have an incredible team of lawyers who are helping me every step of the way… I have the support of my family and friends who will not stop fighting for me until I am back home." 

Thankfully, going back home is now a reality for this DREAMer.
