For a moving account of the issues one of the families in New Jersey has recently faced google “Juan Reyes, Not One More Deportation.” His story also demonstrates the power of public pressure. After just a few hours in immigration detention he was released, due to the outcry from Casa Freehold and other groups, his friends, and his family.
