In more news on immigration, a federal judge has stayed the deportation of New York City immigrant rights leader Ravi Ragbir, after he filed a free-speech lawsuit arguing immigration officials unconstitutionally used their power to suppress political dissent by targeting outspoken activists for surveillance and deportation.
