California: Police Work With ICE Creates Fear

Edward Sifuentes wrote an article titled "Community complains over police and immigration cooperation" on March 29, 2007 in the North County Times in California. It focused on how local police is reporting people to ICE potentially leading to deportation based on simple traffic stops. Communities are complaining that they are creating an atmosphere of fear in the community. Similar problems are happening in cities around North County, including in San Diego.
"If the Carlsbad Police Department wants to create the perception that they are Border Patrol agents, that comes with a toll for the relationship with the community," Ramirez said. [Christian Ramirez, a San Diego immigrant rights advocate with the American Friends Service Committee]
