Daniela Vargas, 22, was detained by ICE agents who pulled over a friend's vehicle on a nearby freeway after she left a coalition of clergy members, civil rights lawyers and other advocates for immigrants at Jackson City Hall, according to one of her lawyers, Nathan Elmore. It wasn't until a few weeks ago that she'd been able to come up with the $495 filing fee. But they say Vargas has been in the USA since her parents brought her here from Argentina at the age of 7.

The city also encouraged residents to sign up for the municipal ID program which allows all residents - regardless of immigration status - access to the library, public pool and other city amenities. Under the action, they are given temporary legal status that they must renew every two years. An ICE official told the Huffington Post that Vargas wasn't arrested in February because she said she was protected by DACA. The 22-year-old said she hid in a closet, was handcuffed when discovered and eventually released.

Vargas and her family are originally from Argentina but have been living in the US for over 15 years.

Others asked what they should do if U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) came to their door.

ICE confirmed the arrest of Vargas, saying in a statement to CBS affiliate WJTV that it was part of a "targeted immigration enforcement action". Two days later, a response from ICE said that "prior existing commitments" would keep Homan from the hearing.

Angela Stuesse, a family friend and anthropology professor at the University of North Carolina, said: 'She's Mississippian by heart.

Moments after the conference ended, she was arrested. This is the life that she knows.

Vargas believes the USA needs a "path for citizenship" for DACA recipients and "also for the other 11 million undocumented people with dreams".

"This has violated the trust of our community and we can not tell you how disappointed we are by the betrayal of the DHS", Vogel said.

Law-enforcement processes were of note during a widely attended forum last week in the Snyderville Basin that focused on immigration issues. Authorities said they don't want local police officers being used as immigration officers. He did say that ICE is working and will continue to work on deportation efforts, but it is very unlikely that it would set up a checkpoint in Idaho.

"You knew what cases ICE deemed most important so that helped you as an attorney, if you were advising somebody to inform them of the gravity of their situation", Elmore said. The Trump administration has promised to deport millions of immigrants, even those with minor or no criminal histories, and many fear that the program is in jeopardy. ICE said that she was taken into custody "during a targeted immigration enforcement action" in Jackson. We have heard the rumor that ICE is in Blaine County conducting arrests. His attorneys have denied that and have called the claim fabricated.
