Complaining of Crime Leads To Informant's Potential Deportation

According to the Greenwich Times, as also reported in New York Newsday on January 28, 2006, a man went to the Greenwich, Connecticut police to report he was being harassed and the police wound up running his name through a national database and turning him over to ICE for potential deportation. ICE took him into custody due to immigration violations -- the man was deported and re-entered without permission. In general, police are afraid that immigrants aren't reporting crimes because they're afraid of being deported. Sounds like there is reason to be afraid of being deported if you report a crime -- this man tried to report a crime and was put into detention for potential deportation.
