Selena Roman detained for weeksImmigration authorities released a Texas flight attendant Friday after she was detained for more than a month following a flight to Mexico.

Selene Saavedra Roman – who is enrolled in the government's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program – was told by her employer that she would not have problems re-entering the United States after working the international route, attorney Belinda Arroyo said.

Mesa Airlines chief executive Jonathan Ornstein later described the situation as an "administrative error."

"She should have never been advised that she could travel," Arroyo said. "It was a big mistake."
