ICE is feeling the heat from Democrats and civil rights groups following the arrest of a 23-year-old Mexican man who is believed to be the first DACA (Deferred Action and Childhood Arrivals) recipient arrested under the Trump administration.

Reuters broke the news Tuesday night, though the arrest was made last week by ICE agents who had arrived at the Seattle home of Daniel Ramirez Medina to arrest his father. Ramirez, who was brought to the United States illegally as a child and given a work permit during the Obama administration, was taken into custody as a “self-admitted gang member” and a risk to public safety, ICE said.

Word of the arrest inspired calls from top Democrats and others that Ramirez be released immediately.

Unless there’s been a lot of turnover at ICE, “Trump’s deportation force” shouldn’t look much different today than Obama’s deportation force looked in January.

While there’s a lot of talk of “scared kids” whenever DACA is mentioned, it’s worth keeping in mind that this particular scared kid, who was brought to the U.S. illegally at age 7, now is 23 and has a 3-year-old son of his own.

Reuters’ Dan Levine expanded on the story Wednesday evening, noting that the Department of Homeland Security has terminated the permits of about 1,500 DACA recipients due to a criminal conviction or gang affiliation. Ethan Dettmer, an attorney representing Ramirez, claims that ICE agents repeatedly pressured him while in custody to “falsely admit his [gang] affiliation.”

ICE has been getting plenty of press over the past couple of days as stories like the following gain traction on social media.

And this one …

ICE agents must be tired of playing the bad guy all the time, and it looks like the agency is pulling a Trump and acting as its own public relations agent on social media rather than wait for the press to report on less sensational stories.
