Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, introduced a private bill to prevent the deportation of Daniela Vargas, a DACA recipient from Jackson, Mississippi.

Ms. Vargas was taken into custody last month by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after participating in a public media event to protest the Trump Administration’s immigration policies.  She was released nine days later from a detention center in Louisiana but an order for her removal remains active.
