Family members of a Northern Kentucky woman say she’s being detained improperly by immigration officials and they’re worried she might be deported. To make matters worse, officials won’t say where they're keeping Riccy Enriquez Perdomo, her family says. "What they're doing is illegal. She's under a protected status and you can't just go and pick up people just because," said Enriquez’s brother-in-law, Robert Cole. Agents with U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement detained Enriquez, 22, when she went to Louisville last week to bail out another person who was detained, according to her brother-in-law, Robert Cole. While she was at the Louisville detention center, officials checked Perdomo's immigration status, Cole said. Cole said Perdomo believed she was protected in the United States under the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals program (DACA).
