In Massachusetts, the ACLU says it’s uncovered emails showing how a pair of federal immigration agencies worked together to trap and arrest immigrants as they arrived for interviews to seek permanent residency. The ACLU says ICE agents coordinated efforts with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services as immigrants arrived with their spouses—who are U.S. citizens—at citizenship offices throughout New England seeking green cards. The agencies reportedly scheduled the arrests at times that would attract less public attention.
