Progressive Caucus Statement on Arrest of Dreamer Daniel Ramirez

The New York City Council Progressive Caucus condemns the Trump administration’s continual affront to immigrant communities, most recently with the arrest of DACA recipient and DREAMer Daniel Ramierez Medina, who was arrested by ICE agents in the Seattle area and stripped of his DACA protections. We are alarmed and outraged at the President’s erratic and immoral approach to immigration which spreads fear in marginalized immigrant communities, and does not make our country any safer. The NYCC Progressive Caucus recognizes the wide contributions of immigrants to our city and to our nation, and the Caucus has long advocated for rights and protections of New Yorkers who are vulnerable due to documentation status. We urge ICE to free Daniel Ramirez Medina, and urge the Trump administration to cease its attack on immigrant communities.
