The group escorts mostly women and children to immigration court hearings, where judges decide who... [Read More]

A previously deported Uber driver now facing a rape rap is still in the wind, according to federal immigration authorities who sought to detain him but didn't after a state judge released him on light bail. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said yesterday they still haven't located Luis Baez, 34, three days after he was released on a meager $2,500 bail — a small fraction of the $100,000 prosecutors were requesting — on charges he raped a Boston College student who hailed his ride last fall.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has launched a new office, with a toll-free hotline, for what it described in an April 26 news release as "victims of crime committed by criminal aliens." Social media users encouraged each other to call in with imaginative reports, including UFO abductions and taxpayer complaints about first lady Melania Trump, an immigrant from Slovenia. What on Earth is the useful purpose of establishing a new office for "crimes committed by criminal aliens?" The Trump administration's determination to vilify unauthorized immigrants has real impacts on U.S. families and our collective... [Read More]

The sheriff's fears were realized when Homeland Security Investigations, known as HSI, swarmed Santa Cruz and arrested not just alleged MS-13 members but others suspected only of immigration violations — actions known as collateral arrests. The Santa Cruz Police Department soon apologized for participating, and what could have been a visible victory in the fight against a notorious gang became, at least in part, a symbol of something else. There's a fundamental divide between HSI, whose more than 6,000 agents do critical work, and many police forces in the Bay Area and beyond — one that could... [Read More]
