In this hour, we take a look at the creation of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and how in just fifteen years it’s gone from an agency with wide bipartisan support to a political lightning rod. We’ll hear from a man who has been detained at Bergen County Jail for nearly a year. We’ll talk to people who work at a non-profit organization where ICE had an informant. Plus a retired agent with the Immigration and Naturalization Service explains why he thinks border security should be a priority and ICE needs more resources to do its job.
Eric Jurek is a 38-year-old Slovakian immigrant who has been detained in Bergen County jail for about a year for overstaying his visa.
