The Aftermath of the Ellensburg, WA Immigration Raid and Lessons from Past ICE Enforcement Efforts

February 9, 2011

Abstract

Potential opportunities such as early release and ongoing community support and the challenges associated with home arrests both argue for applying humanitarian release guidelines universally, great caution in executing warrants, and greater community involvement.
