Comment: DREAM In Detention
In a Democracy Now! Exclusive, Virdiana Martinez, a DREAM activist and member of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, talks to producer Renee Feltz about the findings following her infiltrating the Broward Transitional Center. Members of this youth organization who participated in the infiltration of immigration centers:

Found dozens of immigrants there who should be released under the Obama administration's policies. The group said they found more than 60 detainees with no criminal record or prior deportations, some of whom were detained as passengers in vehicles. They also found detainees in need of immediate medical care. Despite an executive action announced by President Obama last month to stop deportations of many undocumented youth, the group said they found more than a dozen young detainees who would qualify for the DREAM Act, a legislative proposal granting residency to certain youth who entered the country as minors. Obama administration officials had promised to comb through backlogged cases to close those involving immigrants with no criminal records and strong family ties, but it was reported in July fewer than 2 percent of deportation cases have been closed under the review.
We applaud the courage of these activists in exposing the appalling gap between the words and the deeds of this administration. Let us know your thoughts at editor@ilw.com.
