A Memorial to Comfort Women in San Francisco

Hosted by

Glendale is one of seven suburban communities with a statue memorializing the so-called "comfort women" abducted for use by Japanese soldiers during World War II. Now San Francisco may become the first major American city with a similar monument. But the proposal is creating international controversy.

Also, LA Sheriff Jim McDonnell has re-opened county jails to federal immigration officials—as a matter of "public safety." Critics say it makes undocumented workers afraid to cooperate with local law enforcement—even in their own interests.
