Selene Saavedra Roman was afraid about going to work.
She’s been a idealist since 2012, when the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals event first begun.
Born in Peru, she has inhabited in the United States for 25 years, since she was 3. However, her immigration status has been worrying her for a while now.
This is the reason she got a job as a flight attendant. Further, she settled to work for a local company, Mesa Airlines, as a flight attendant. Further, she updated the company, she was a DACA recipient and couldn’t to fly overseas.
However, in February, Mesa expected her to fly to Mexico, Saavedra Roman’s attorney said. Further, she told them her concerns, the company assured her that she wouldn’t have issues invading the United States.
But on Feb. 12, customs authorities confined Saavedra Roman just after she landed in Houston on her return flight.
She would stay in custody for another six weeks. She was freed Friday evening, but authorities are directing to her case as an example of how the Trump administration’s pursue to finish DACA.
“They’ve been lost in legal limbo, and it’s getting quite ridiculous,” Saavedra Roman’s attorney, Belinda Arroyo, said in an interview before her client was freed. “Her case is basically the poster child for what happens when you leave these people in legal limbo.”
“This is an awful story,” tweeted Hillary Clinton on Friday before the flight attendant was freed.
