Students protest valedictorian's deportation order
Students protest after Miami high school valedictorian is ordered to leave country
By The Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) ' A high school valedictorian in Miami has been ordered by a federal immigration judge to leave the country.

Daniela Pelaez is planning on appealing the judge's order. She came to the United States from Colombia with her family when she was 4. She considers herself American and has applied to several Ivy League universities with the dream of becoming a heart surgeon.

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman says the agency will not take any action against Pelaez while she pursues her legal options.



More than 2,000 students protested outside North Miami High School on Friday.
