Clothes, Friday, and Honda: MARCH 19, 201 TIAE Ripped Apart AMERICA'S THE COST OF IMMIGRATION CRACKDOWN BY HALEY SWEETLAND EDWARDS with two of her daughters deported te Mexkke America's immigration policy is splitting families and spreading fear . . Just before 7:30 one Friday morning last March, Alejandro said goodbye to his wife Maria and his two small daughters and headed off to work. He didn’t make it far. Four blocks from his home near Bakersfield, Calif., two unmarked vehicles, a white Honda and a green Mazda pickup truck, pulled up behind him at a stop sign. Plain-clothes Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents spilled out. They wore vests emblazoned with the word Police. . . Alejandro dialed Maria from his cell phone and told her what was happening. Her heart dropped. She said later that she knew it wouldn’t matter that Alejandro had no criminal record, not even a speeding ticket. Or that he’d driven these same roads every day for the past decade, picking grapes, pistachios and oranges in California’s Central Valley. Since 2006, when Alejandro overstayed his visa, he had been considered a “fugitive alien,” in ICE parlance, and therefore subject to immediate deportation to Mexico. Now he was arrested on the spot. . . A few days later, he was given an ankle bracelet and allowed to return home to say goodbye. He was gone by the end of spring—before his eldest, Isabella, began talking, before Estefania took her first steps, before Maria gave birth this winter to their third baby. . .

The latest news article I could find about this was from August 4, 2017 Man posing as Uber driver (possibly related) In the past couple of days, at least three people (2 women and 1 man) have said that a man in a black car approached them claiming to be an Uber driver and was "unusually persistent" and aggressive, wanting them to get into his car. It's unclear whether this happened in the Village area or in the Isabella/Sherbourne area. UNCONFIRMEDIRUMOUREDWORD OF MOUTH l've heard that a few other young women/trans people/nb people have also gone missing from the Village area in the past few days, a couple of whom were potentially sex workers.
