In an otherwise all-out deport-a-thon, the Trump Administration seemed to show one glimmer of humanity.

It promised to exempt DREAMers who were brought to the US as children without documentation.

That promise was broken one night in February when immigration officials arrested and deported 23 year old DREAMer Juan Manuel Montes.

He is an agricultural worker and community college student who suffers a disability from a childhood traumatic brain injury.

The National Immigration Law Center has filed a federal lawsuit against the Trump Administration demanding it turn over key information about his sudden deportation.

In a twist of poetic justice, the case is being heard by Judge Gonzalo Curiel.

Hey, while you're at it ... Rep. Steve King, tweeting from the nearby border state of Iowa, continues to use his elected office to foment racism and xenophobia. His latest tweet is a picture of a beer with this caption: "First non-valedictorian DREAMer deported. Border Patrol, this one's for you." You can find our prior thoughts on Rep. King here.
