Attorney: ICE detainee, activist Daniela Vargas to be released

Daniela Vargas was arrested in Jackson, Mississippi, earlier this month after leaving a press conference where she spoke about the detention of her family members. Her ordeal with ICE began on February 15, when agents entered her home and took her father and brother out in handcuffs. She was picked up at the detention center by the friend who had been driving the auto she was in as a passenger when ICE arrested her.

The details of her release were not immediately available. Dick Durbin of IL, a Democrat, said of Vargas's detention.

Vargas, who was born in Argentina and brought to the United States by her parents when she was seven years old, is being detained at the LaSalle Detention Center in Louisiana.

Vargas had been enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, but she had failed to renew her enrollment before it expired.

Daniela Vargas spoke out at Immigration Press Conference calling to open discussion with local community leaders and law enforcement agencies.

On March 1, Vargas - who arrived in the USA from Argentina when she was 7-years-old - was arrested by ICE agents after she spoke at a press conference organized by the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance in Jackson, Mississippi. She came out of hiding to speak at the news conference. Vargas was arrested when ICE agents pulled her and a friend over while they were driving home from the press conference, ABC Jackson affiliate WAPT reported.

Abigail Peterson, another lawyer for Vargas, said her client was relieved to be out of custody. For now, Vargas is being processed as a "visa wavier overstay", which could deny her a hearing and lead to her deportation to South America. No one is sure what will happen to her in terms of deportation.

This week, we get to tell you that it looks like she will be released from detention.
