ICE Cracks Down in Southern California

Hosted by

The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement is on the warpath with 1300 arrests in the last two weeks at homes, workplaces and jails; 600 have already been deported, and ICE says there is more to come. Most of those picked up either have criminal records or failed to abide by orders for deportation. Immigrants' rights groups say there's a climate of fear—even among citizens and legal residents—with risk to the economy. Anti-immigrant groups say it's about time. We hear from all three.
