ICE Raids: Almost Like Waterboarding?
New Haven’s mayor said they’re “a short step” away as he squared off against his dramatic foil, Danbury’s immigration-battling mayor, at a forum in Hartford.
New Haven Mayor John DeStefano was describing a June 6 raid by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officials of undocumented workers 36 hours after the city’s Board of Aldermen approved an immigration-friendly municipal ID plan. He made the suggestion at a debate Wednesday entitled “Illegal Immigration: How Cities Are Coping.”
