The country’s first protected #DREAMer has been deported, according to a story in USA Today. Juan Montes was twice granted deportation protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created by President Barack Obama and left intact by President Trump. Federal agents sent the young man back to his native Mexico. Questions still surround the exact details of this case, but it has raised concerns across the country as the DACA protections are still in place.
