Supervisors vote to end deportation program in L.A. County

This week L.A. County’s Board of Supervisors ended a program that placed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents inside jails to screen inmates for deportation, but replaced it with a policy that still supports collusion between jail officials and ICE. Opponents argue that the agencies’ collaboration leads to the deportation of low-level offenders like people picked up for driving without a license. “I have never thought that the collaboration between the Sheriff and ICE, or the Department of Homeland Security, would engender any kind of trust in our communities. Quite the opposite.” More and a video by Voicewaves.
