    "Ramos is just one example immigrants who have found themselves on the verge of deportation despite the Obama administration’s announcement last month that it will use new guidelines to review 300,000 pending immigration cases—a move intended to expedite the deportations of individuals considered high priority."

    "'No deberían estar tratando a la gente de esta forma,' dijo Ramos, quien recién esta semana recibió la notificación de que su orden de deportación fue suspendida por al menos un año."

    "Las declaraciones de Ramos, argentino, y Noriega, mexicano, reflejan temores similares en todo el país donde inmigrantes indocumentados en proceso de deportación se quejan de que la promesa del gobierno federal el mes pasado de cerrar casos y suspender deportaciones de cientos de miles de indocumentados no se ha puesto en vigor."

    "The statements by (Matias) Ramos, of Argentina, and Noriega, of Mexico, reflect similar concerns throughout the country where undocumented immigrants facing deportation proceedings are finding that the federal government's promise last month that it would close cases and suspend deportation proceedings for hundreds of thousands of undocumented people hasn't been kept."

    "When WAMU aired Matias Ramos' story on Wednesday, he was wearing an electronic GPS shackle and about to be deported. Now he says he have benefited from a recent change by Homeland Security that instructs ICE prosecutors to go after illegal immigrants who pose a risk to public safety and deport them first."

    "I moved out here from L.A. to work on the DREAM Act," says Matias Ramos, who lives in D.C. "I had been a volunteer for the Obama campaign and I really thought there was going to be change. I’m not a felon; I’m not a criminal."

    "Last month, the Obama administration announced that it would review some 300,000 cases of immigrants in the deportation pipeline, potentially sparing many deemed a low priority for deportation from removal. Among these low priorities were young people who arrived here as children, and who have or are pursuing a higher education degree in the United States.

    "Challenges to the policy shift were inevitable, as people whose cases are eligible for review continue to move through the system. But a particularly high-profile challenge has surfaced now in the imminent deportation of Matias Ramos, one of the nation’s most prominent undocumented student leaders and the co-founder of United We Dream, an advocacy network for undocumented youth. A well-known spokesman for these students, Ramos was most recently quoted in a news story about how some pay for college.

    "Earlier today, Ramos tweeted, 'Obama gave someone a contract to put an electronic shackle on me.' Ramos, 25, who was born in Argentina, attached a link to a photo of himself wearing an electronic monitoring device."
