A recipient of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals has filed a lawsuit claiming that she was illegally arrested and detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in Kentucky last year while providing bail and bond money to detainees. Riccy Mabel Enriquez-Perdomo, a Honduran national who came to the U.S. at age 9, is suing agents who allegedly arrested and detained her, even after learning that her DACA status was current. She also said that at least one arresting officer knew her from her frequent visits to the ICE office to help people bond out. After her arrest, Enriquez-Perdomo was transferred to nine different locations in Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois, according to the suit. She alleges she “was deprived of sleep during these multiple moves and was fed one sandwich a day (except for Boone County) during this time.” She was detained on Aug. 17, 2017 and released seven days later. Enriquez-Perdomo claims she was never given a reason for the arrest or multiple moves.
