Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday issued a statement of support for a Dreamer that was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for over a month, calling for people to sign a petition for her release.

Selene Saavedra Roman came to America from Peru at age 3. Roman, who is a flight attendant, was granted legal status by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but detained after arriving in the U.S. after working on a flight from Mexico.

“Selene Saavedra Roman is a DREAMer with approved status, no criminal history, and simply doing her job as a certified U.S. Flight Attendant. It is outrageous that she was detained and has been held for over a month with no end in sight. We call on [Homeland Security] Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and ICE Acting Director Ronald D. Vitielloto to immediately release Selene and drop all charges against her,” the petition read. 

“This is an awful story: A DACA recipient in good standing was told by her airline she could work on a route to Mexico. Now she's in detention and ICE is threatening to revoke her status. Please sign and get the word out,” Clinton tweeted on Friday.
Roman’s attorney told The Hill that afternoon that she has since been released.
