Over the past few days, we've heard the story of Edgar Niebla and Alvaro Agon. Edgar came here from Mexico illegally, and Alvaro came here legally from Colombia. In April, immigration enforcement agents raided Edgar's house, hoping to deport him. One of the officers there to arrest him was Alvaro himself.
Both men didn't speak to one another for over a month. Then, in the middle of May, we sat them down in our studio to hash things out. KDNK's Mathew Katz sat in on that conversation.
Today we're going to have the second part on our serieis about the relationship between Edgar Niebla and Alvaro Agon. Both are immigrants, both went through the police academy, but Edgar came here illegally, while Alvaro came here on a visa. KDNK's Mathew Katz takes a look at what happened when immigration enforcement agents raided Edgar's house, and Alvaro was one of the officers sent to deport him.
Over the past few months, KDNK has reported on a number of early-morning raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. The raids target immigrants with the goal of deporting them. But sometimes, they get it wrong targeting people here legally; in one recent instance, a U.S. citizen. It all points to the challenges that face the nation's murky immigration system.
Today we begin a week-long series about how that system, and those raids in particular, are playing out here in the valley. And we'll start out with a three-part look at how a raid in April split apart two friends. KDNK's Mathew Katz reports.
