American Citizens Caught in the Immigration Crackdown Net

Hosted by

The Obama Administration's crackdown on illegal immigrants has snagged at least four American citizens in Los Angeles County, at least three in the last month. One father of four had to sleep on the floor in the county jail, even though a judge had ordered that he be released. We hear about the "Secure Communities" program from the head of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the ACLU and others. Also, an update on the 60 Freeway, still closed between the 605 and the 710. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, when the wealthy sneeze, the economy catches cold.
