EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Federal officials in Texas have released five immigrant protesters who surrendered in September to U.S. authorities at the border with Mexico.
The five released Friday evening had crossed the border illegally and surrendered to protest federal immigration policies.
Hours earlier, a judge in El Paso denied requests for asylum by two immigrant protesters. Eight of the immigrant protesters remain detained, seven of them having been denied asylum and the other awaiting parole.
One of the 25 immigrants detained in El Paso in September previously was deported. Authorities released 11 people Tuesday from that group of young immigrants. They were brought to the U.S. as children but are not citizens.
They're called "dreamers" in reference to the Dream Act that would grant immigrants like them lawful status in the U.S.
