Listen: “When ICE Came to Pick up Daddy” via @soundslikerstin

March 7, 2013

via independent radio producer Kerstin Zilm

At 6 in the morning of October 12, 2011 ICE picked up Jose Luis in Los Angeles to bring him to a detention center in Orange County. Jose’s wife Norma was sitting next to him in the car getting ready to drop him off at work. Jose’s ten year old daughter Jessica watched from her bedroom window how officers dragged her father out of the car, pushed him to the dirt and took him away. Jose Luis had been deported before. Coming back without papers is a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Listen to Norma and Jessica recounting the day he was picked up, describing their husband and father and talking about hopes for the future
