    "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.

    "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."
