An illegal immigrant flaunted her criminal behavior in front of a crowd at a press conference and was promptly served justice when she was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The Daily Caller reported:
Daniela Vargas, 22, was detained in Jackson, Miss. shortly after speaking at the press conference, The Clarion-Ledger reports. Vargas, an Argentine national who arrived in the U.S. at age 7, was previously protected under President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Her DACA status, however, recently expired.
Vargas’ attorney Abby Peterson told The Clarion-Ledger that Vargas’ car was pulled over by ICE agents moments after the news conference, and they told her, “You know who we are, you know what we’re here for.”
The press conference was hosted by local churches, immigration attorneys and the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance to speak about recently deported families.

The DC reported:
Her father and brother were also recently detained by ICE agents as they are likewise in the country illegally. Under direction from President Trump and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, ICE has stopped the prioritizing the deportation of only the most serious of criminals.
Vargas’ lawyer told The Clarion-Ledger: “The concern is, with the priorities as they were set forth in the executive order, people who are not criminals, people who have not been convicted, people who have not even been charged will be swept up by ICE at the same time as violent criminals.”
And that is where this lawyer, who should know better (and probably does), is wrong. An illegal immigrant is a criminal. Period. She broke the law and now she is being held accountable for it.
It would be nice if bleeding-heart leftists were as concerned about legal American citizens and the resources they have had snatched away from them by illegal immigrants (and worse in many other cases) as they are about pushing their open-borders agenda.
The left simply uses sob stories and emotional appeals to push their agenda. They don’t really care about illegal immigrants — they’re just using them as pawns.
Those who actually have compassion are busy directing it toward the legal American citizens who need help and those who have been harmed by illegal immigrants — not those who broke our laws.
