Councilmember González’s Statement on Daniel Ramirez Medina Hearing

Councilmember M. Lorena González (Pos. 9, Citywide) issued the following statement following this morning’s status conference at the U.S. District Courthouse:

“I’m disappointed that Daniel wasn’t released today. That was the hope. However, Judge Donohue’s comments indicate that he understands the gravity of the situation for both Daniel and DACA recipients across the nation. I’m pleased to hear that he has directed his judicial colleague to consider Daniel’s bond hearing in a week. However, we still need answer from ICE and will follow closely as this court pursues them. Seattle stands with all people that consider this country their home.”
