Immigration Crackdown: Faces of the immigration crackdown

The stories of some unauthorized immigrants and their treatment at the hands of immigration authorities.

Jeff Gerritt: Faces of the immigration crackdown | Detroit Free Press | freep.com: "Until this nation reforms its ineffective and inhumane immigration laws, federal law enforcement officers are stuck with the lousy job of enforcing them. But growing evidence suggests that the local U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office and U.S. Border Patrol -- to the detriment of their critical mission -- are wasting time and money detaining hardworking immigrants who pose no threat, even subjecting them to medical neglect and other abuses.

Immigrants say Detroit has become a place where those who work hard and stay out of trouble face racial profiling and harassment at their schools and community centers by zealous immigration and border patrol officers. Their homes are entered without warrants, some say."
