An automotive mechanic was incarcerated for more than a year and a half over his immigration status. He is now reunited with his wife and four kids after being released from detention due to high risk of Covid-19. What were the consequences of separation to his family and his community? This is a story about a family that went broke and traumatized after this deportation action. On another story, claiming that ICE escalated bullying and terror tactics during a major operation against sanctuary cities this year, immigrant advocates sued DHS and ICE to be allowed access to arrest records and related information for a number of ICE raids in sanctuary cities throughout the US and the way the agencies choose their “targets.” Finally, a legal analyst comments on the connotations of Trump’s visit to celebrate the border wall in Alamo, Texas, as a rallying cry for White “patriots,” the resignation of DHS’ Chad Wolf, and the reports about new migrant caravans being organized in Central America. Analysts comment on these and more stories.
