Immigrant Activist Arrested by ICE


Claudio Rojas, an outspoken immigration rights activist, was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week, days before a new documentary on his work was set to show at the Miami International Film Festival. Read the full story

Claudio Rojas is one of the stars in "The Infiltrators."  As a detainee in 2012, he was the inside man on a larger plan. He eventually won his own release, in part because of a headline-grabbing hunger strike. But Rojas won’t be able to catch the film’s South Florida debut, because last week, he was once again arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Rojas’s attorney doesn’t think the timing of his latest detention is a coincidence.
