Moments after an immigrant spoke out about her fears of deportation, she was detained by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.
Daniela Vargas, 22, was detained by ICE agents Wednesday morning, shortly after speaking at a news conference in downtown Jackson, according to her attorney, Abby Peterson.
The news conference was hosted by local immigration attorneys, churches and the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance to bring attention to families impacted by deportation.
Vargas' brother and father were detained outside their home by ICE agents in February. Vargas hid in the closet. When she was discovered by agents, she was temporarily handcuffed and then released.

Be careful out there. Nobody is safe even those practicing their political rights.
This is so disgusting. I wonder how many others were fired throughout the country for protesting unfairness.
Yesterday I received very bad news that a very close friend of mine from high school lost his battle with cancer and died. I didn't get the job I NEED desperately and I was so depressed on top of already being depressed over our nation. I was drinking and having a horrible day just trying to forget everything. When I got a notice of a heart and I just started balling and it released me from my funk. The timing honestly could never have been better. God only knows what the results would have been if I stayed drinking and feeling like crap.
I sincerely thank both heart donors. If you ever wonder if it will change a day or more, I promise you it does.
Senator Warren voted against his wife for transportation secretary. Mcconnell was probably getting back at her. So mature. Not!
It's seems like forever since she has been in the news. I'm hoping she's the one to finally take trump down by his illegal behavior. Thanks. Just wondering because it's been awhile.
This is why Trump can say build a wall using Executive Order. The wall building was passed in 2006 by 26 Democratic Senators and passed with Senate 80-19. It easily passed in the House as well.
Now I am not sure why it was passed so easily back in the day, but it was never revoked even though the fence was never built so Trump is using it as a way of building he wall.
Had we known Trump was going to use this bill, I have no doubt that Democratic Senators would have passed a bill revoking it in 2009-2010 no doubt. But who knew a crazy guy was going to be President. Nobody thought that would happen.
Not a surprise. Even she should have seen the writing on the wall after the firestorm in the media.
Wow! So good. Mark walberg is great in all he does. It really showed the inspiration of America especially thinking about tomorrow.
Heck elder president bush too. I want them all healthy and doing well through 2020 so president trump does not have to insult them by being center at their funeral.
I know awful subject but some of the ages make me nervous.
Anybody at the polls? Busy? Being they are being held on Saturday should make turnout a lot better. We need a repeat of the governors race. We did it once, we can do it again. Come on democratic voters in Louisiana, I am rooting for you.
