Supreme Court to Hear Identity Theft Case
The Supreme Court has accepted the case of East Moline, IL, undocumented steelworker charged with two counts of identity theft. (See NY Times article and post for October 19th.) A decision will influence how and how effectively ICE can carrying out plant raids. It uses the threat of a identity-theft charge to win easy cooperation in a deportation proceeding.
