#WhenICECame Video Series: "Police Took Me Away In Front Of My 5 Year Old Son"

This is the second installment of the #WhenICECame video profile series of immigrants in Santa Clara County caught in the crosshairs of police-ICE entanglement. As Santa Clara County is considering whether our local law enforcement agencies should notify ICE about individuals going through the criminal justice system, hear from our community members who are most affected when local police become entangled with ICE. This video series, produced by Silicon Valley De-Bug, is done in coordination with the Santa Clara County Forum for Immigrants Rights (FIRE) Coalition.

Undocumented, she always felt the fear of deportation, and even when she called police, it was her that was taken into custody. Her story is particularly poignant as Santa Clara County recognizes October 2015 as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
