Immigration activists self-deport in order to infiltrate detention center

Undocumented immigration activists infiltrated an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention facility in Southern Florida to conduct an undercover investigation. They claim to have found more than 100 low priority cases of people who, according to recent policies of the Obama administration, should be released.

Over the last month and a half, seven activists from the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA) intentionally placed themselves through deportation proceedings to gain access to the Broward Transitional Center. NIYA says similar infiltrations have been taking place all over the country in order to expose irregularities in the system.

“Our organizers inside of the detention center have discovered that the Obama administration is still deporting the same people it promises not to deport,” NIYA said in a statement released on Monday.
