DREAM Act-Eligible Man Faces Deportation, Despite Policy Change

October 25, 2011 (1 min read)

"Shamir Ali, a 25-year-old born in Bangladesh, was at work at a Miami luxury car dealership last week when federal officers raided the company. FBI officers asked Ali for his papers, and then turned him over to immigration authorities, putting the undocumented man into deportation proceedings.  Now, with Ali in detention and facing removal from the United States, immigrant rights groups are rallying behind him, saying his deportation would be in direct contradiction with an Obama administration policy that should protect some undocumented young people from removal." - Elise Foley, HuffPo, Oct. 24, 2011.
