US IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT 'WRONGFULLY ARRESTED OVER 1,000 AMERICANS SINCE 2012'

A new report finds that Immigration and Customs Enforcement wrongfully and repeatedly targeted and arrested Americans for years, with as many as 1,480 US citizens being arrested since 2012.

The staggering number of wrongful arrests was made public by an investigation by the Los Angeles Times.

The newspaper also discovered that hundreds of US citizens during that time were forced to prove their identities to immigration courts, and would sometimes spend months or years of detention — even though ICE policy requires a legal review within 48 hours when someone in their custody claims to be an American citizen.
