“Catch Me if You Can”

Authorities are working to capture illegal immigrants, but is it in vain? CHANNEL 5 NEWS is exposing more flaws in the deportation system. We met a woman caught at a stash house and released four days later at a bus stop. Months later, we went to see if she met her detention officer. She didn’t. We eventually located at a phone number federal authorities don’t have for her. A judge can order her to be deported, but ICE would have to hunt her down to send her home. Are agents even looking?

The online content includes the article, video, reporter’s blog, and a list of responses from the Department of Homeland Security to the station’s questions.
