Nina Bernstein at the New York Times brings us another story of government immigration overreach.
From the post:
Even this well-connected, white European, who enlisted the help of an influential Senator was stuck in a legal black hole for 10 days, and would be there still if the New York Times hadn’t started calling.
Just think about the thousands of nonwhite, non-European immigrants without well-connected relatives who fall into this black hole. Some such immigrants are detained for years (one client of mine was previously detained for three years), and no one ever knows.
