A Texas tweet storm is brewing over the detention of a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) recipient in San Antonio.
Sergio “Mapache” Salazar-Gonzalez, a beneficiary of Barack Obama’s DACA , was detained after participating in a protest outside a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility.
Law enforcement sources told the San Antonio Express-News that Salazar-Gonzalez is the subject of scrutiny by the FBI’s Joint Terrorist Task Force following an intelligence referral by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Specifically, the 18-year-old is being looked at for online postings purported to threaten ICE, as well as instructional videos on how to make weapons.
