Following on from last week's update:

Daniela Vargas, detained after speaking out about her deportation fears at a meeting last week, was released on Friday under an order of supervision.

Meanwhile, Daniel Ramirez Medina, the DACA recipient detained during a raid to arrest his father and accused of gang affiliation, remains in custody. The federal judge handling the case delayed issuing a ruling at a hearing last Wednesday because he said the Justice Department improperly made a new argument in a brief filed Tuesday, leaving Ramirez's attorneys little chance to respond. A ruling is expected early next week.

Meanwhile, at least five states are challenging the Minority President's new Travel Ban signed on Monday: Maryland is joining a challenge by Washington that's also backed by Oregon and Minnesota, while Hawaii has filed a separate challenge. Meanwhile, the new travel ban has faced its first successful challenge when a federal judge in Wisconsin blocked its application against a Syrian family.
