Immigration-Related Arrests and Deportations Causing Fears in Community
DES MOINES, Iowa -- "Families are being thrown back to their countries and then being murdered and killed, and then they lose a mother or father or both," said Dianna Hernandez Lopez. Lopez showed up Tuesday at the Des Moines Field Office for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to challenge the office's practices. She recorded the encounter on video, which she then shared with Channel 13. Lopez believes her brother-in-law and the two men who were in his car and arrested by ICE agents on Tuesday morning were profiled and targeted because of the color of their skin.
