A so-called ‘dreamer’ recently arrested near Seattle will remain in immigration detention. A federal judge says he’ll make a decision early next week about whether to release Daniel Ramirez Medina from a Tacoma lockup.

Ramirez claims his arrest violated his constitutional rights. Because at the time, he had lawful status in the country through the DACA program.

Mark Rosenbaum is one of Ramirez’s attorneys. He says this case is asking the court to clarify the broader rights of all DACA recipients.
