A Cleveland immigration judge has granted release on bond to the owner of the Miguel’s Tacos food truck business in Yellow Springs. 

Miguel Espinosa has been detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Butler County since late August.

Dayton immigration attorney Karen Bradley represents the Mexican-born Espinosa, whose wife and three children are United States citizens, and says Judge David Whipple was moved by the outpouring of letters from Yellow Springs in support of Espinosa.

While Congress debates immigration reform, one Dayton immigration lawyer says many Miami Valley DACA recipients are confused about their options.

Attorney Karen Bradley says her phone has been ringing off the hook. Many of her clients are wondering about how Congressional discussions on immigration may affect their families.

“People are scared," she says. "People are just scared in general.”

Bradley says the last few months have been particularly bewildering for DACA recipients.
