She was detained last week after speaking at a news conference in Jackson, Mississippi, about the arrests of her father and brother by ICE agents. "They had been reading about her in the news, they had seen her at this press conference ..."
ICE spokesman Thomas Byrd confirmed Vargas was released but said he didn't have any additional information. Vargas was in the process of applying for DACA a third time, when ICE officers took her into their custody.
"I've been here for 17 years and this is the most scared I've ever been", Vargas said, with her voice trembling.
"She's really happy to be on her way back to her family and community", Tumlin said. It just means she will no longer be in a detention center.
The 22-year-old immigration rights activist was arrested shortly after speaking at a press conference on March 1 about her father and brother, both of whom were arrested on February 15 by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.
Vargas immigrated to the USA from Argentina when she was 7 years old.

Her case drew national headlines, protests, and growing calls for her release because Vargas had been in the United States under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration policy, or DACA. Government sources said after her arrest that she was not entitled to a hearing because she was considered a "visa waiver overstay" - the status she had prior to registering under DACA. "Because that removal order is still there, they could enforce it at any point", Peterson said.
"It was a discretionary decision [by ICE] based largely on the tremendous amount of pressure in this case and the attention that it's received", immigration attorney Abigail Peterson said of the sudden release. "Not every person will be fortunate enough to have the kind of backing that Daniela was afforded".
Her attorney said her arrest "could be retaliation".
Danielle says that her father has never been charged with a crime here in the USA, her brother, just a shoplifting charge. "We maintain our commitment to the rights of all persons in the USA, regardless of immigration status".
Meanwhile, her attorneys will pursue further legal action, including a request for a stay of attempts to remove from the country.
Her lawyers have filed a writ of habeas corpus in federal court to have the order removed.
