News: A broken friendship, part one of a seriesJuly 27, 2010
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.
